As much as you enjoyed “Stranger Things” Season 4 Volume 1, Volume 2 is better, at least that’s what series director and executive producer Shawn Levy says.
“Stranger Things” Season 4 Volume 1 is now available on the platform, so now the wait turns to the final part of the season, Volume 2. There are several considerable questions that need answering, and the director and executive producer of series Shawn Levy commented to Entertainment Weekly about the season split.
WARNING: The text below contains spoilers for “Stranger Things” Season 4 Volume 1
“There is no doubt that Season 4 is built as a prelude and stepping stone to the fifth and final season. When you watch Volume 2, you’ll know what I’m talking about. And I’ll just tell you, as good as Volume 1 is, Volume 2 is extraordinary. I can’t wait for the world to react to Volume 1, knowing they’ll have such rich episodes to come in just over a month,” Levy said.
Among the big developments in Season 4 is Eleven’s return to Dr. Martin Brenner to regain her powers, as well as the memories the character has blocked. Also, Jamie Campbell Bower plays Henry, a mysterious figure who is the only one who speaks to Eleven during her flashbacks in the lab.
Later in the first volume, we discover that he is the One, or One. That is, the first child that Dr. Brenner, which served as the basis for all of his research on telekinetics in humans. If it was previously believed that it was Eleven who caused the massacre in Hawkins’ lab, it has now been revealed that it was the One who caused all the chaos and destruction after she was tricked into removing his inhibitor chip. It was precisely the battle of the two that caused the portal to the Upside Down to open.
“Without giving away, everything happens for a reason in ‘Stranger Things,’” said Levy. “That’s why we’re going to end things after Season 5, because it’s important to the brothers. [Duffer], and to all of us who do the series with them, may we finish strong, keep the landing and not contain another fragment of history. As you can see in Season 4, we’re picking up a lot of threads – character threads, plot threads, mythology threads – and we’re explaining and weaving those threads together.”
Corroborating what Levy says, Jamie Campbell Bower has already said that things “go a lot further” in Volume 2.
Volume 1 of Season 4 of “Stranger Things” is available on the streaming platform Netflix. Volume 2 is scheduled for release on July 1st.
