Stranger Things fans, rejoice! Netflix has announced a star-studded online party for the season 4 finale of the sci-fi series – and everyone is invited.
In partnership with live streaming service Scener, the streaming platform is hosting a virtual screening for the world premiere of Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 on Friday, July 1st, with stars David Harbor (Hopper) , Brett Gelman (Murray), Joe Quinn (Eddie) and Jamie Campbell Bower (Peter) in attendance as A-list guests.
Starting just before the global release of the final two episodes of season four, Netflix subscribers around the world will have the opportunity to join cast members for a live Q&A before the event turns into a real-time virtual display.
Harbour, Gelman, Quinn and Campbell Bower will be tucked away in a theater customized with thousands of real-life fans for the event, while online attendees will be able to dial in via live chat and stream the two new episodes via synchronous playback.
The viewing party is free for Netflix subscribers worldwide – just sign in Strangerthings4.scener.com (opens in new tab) to get involved. You will need to download the Scener Chrome extension, create a free Scener account and visit the brand page at the time of the event (June 30 at 11:15 PM PT / July 1 at 2:15 AM ET / July 1 at 7:15 AM BST) for access . Guests in the US will also be able to use the Scener mobile app to automatically sync their TVs to watch proceedings on the big screen.
We were very impressed with volume 1 of the highly anticipated fourth season of Stranger Things, describing it, in our review, as “an absorbing, action-packed, horror-filled entry” to the series. The show’s cliffhanger ending, however, left us with 11 questions that we hope Volume 2 will answer, and we’re excited to see how the showrunners, the Duffer Brothers, intend to tie up those loose ends.
Check out the full trailer for volume 2 of season 4 below:
The upcoming episodes of Stranger Things won’t mark the series’ last, mind. We know for sure that a fifth and final season is currently in development, which will end the story of the Hawkins gang – officially, anyway.
Rumors have suggested that the Stranger Things universe could continue in future films and spinoff series, though no future projects have been confirmed yet.
As mentioned, the show’s return is just days away, but if you’re in desperate need of an entertainment solution to help you get there, our pick of the best shows on Netflix is full of binge-worthy recommendations to enjoy.
