Netflix's Stranger Things returns for season four in May and will end with season five.
Creators Matt and Ross Duffer confirmed the fourth season will be released in two parts, with the fifth season acting as the hit coming-of-age series curtain call.
In an open letter to fans, the Duffer Brothers wrote that there are still "many more exciting stories to tell" within the universe, but that filming season four was their biggest challenge yet.
After filming the season over two years, they made the decision to split its release and finish the franchise on a high with season five.

"In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.”
