Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, fans were beginning to wonder if “Stranger Things” would ever return to Netflix after a long filming delay. After an epic post-credits scene at the end of season three where we got a glimpse of a Russian facility that managed to get a Demogorgon, the world sat on the edge of their seats waiting. Season three’s post-credits scene hinted at the possibility that Hopper survived the explosion in the finale, and that while the Hawkins gang naively believed they had finally “won”, Upside Down has yet more of a fight to offer. TO DO.
After nearly three years, “Stranger Things” has finally returned to Netflix, and in a big way. Not only are all the episodes over an hour long, but Netflix has also decided to split the season into two volumes. The first volume premiered on Friday, May 27, and the second volume on July 1.
Many fans expected a post-credits scene at the end of volume one to hint at what was to come in volume two. After all, post-credits scenes have become common practice in film and television thanks to the tendency of production studios (like Marvel, in particular) to hide important clues about upcoming releases. Since this is a tactic ‘Stranger Things’ has used in the past, it’s no surprise fans are expecting a post-credits scene to energize the second installment of season four. .
“Stranger Things” season four, the first volume’s ending uses pristine storytelling that ties new characters and enemies to the original plot when Vecna is revealed to be one. (The original gifted child of Hawkins Lab where Eleven was raised.) That’s probably why the writers didn’t see the need for the final episode to have a post-credits scene. If you get to the end of the credits, all you’ll find is a brief trailer for volume two that doesn’t really add to the narrative of the story like a post-credits scene would.
While you may be disappointed, there’s no post-credits scene to hold you back until “Stranger Things” Season Four, Volume Two, you’ll be comforted that you won’t have to wait. a very long time to watch the back half of the season, since its July 1 premiere. Additionally, “Stranger Things” has already been renewed for its fifth and final season. So while there’s no post-credits scene, there’s plenty more “Stranger Things” to come.
