Strange Things

Stranger Things 4 Vol. 2, and More: July Web Series on Netflix, Hotstar, Prime Video: Stranger Things 4 is, once again, the biggest name on TV two months on from its premiere, thanks to a super-sized conclusion to the fourth season. Volume 2 — as it’s officially called — will no doubt set up the fifth and final season that’s already been confirmed. But how many of our favourites will make it there? You can find out when Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 drops today on Netflix worldwide. That’s not the only major show approaching its end in July. Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul enters its final stretch — that’s season 6 part 2 — premiering July 12 on Netflix in India. It picks up from that explosive death on the mid-season finale, and should’ve more of those in store for us as we approach the series finale.

Meanwhile, close to home, all of Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar, and Amazon Prime Video have revealed their customary original series for the month. Prime Video goes first on July 8 with Modern Love Hyderabad, the Telugu-language adaptation of the American rom-com anthology from showrunner Nagesh Kukunoor. Hotstar Specials is next on July 15 with Shoorveer, an armed forces thriller that brings together the best of the best from the Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force. That leaves Netflix, which has a returning original — a rare moment that’s occurred in back-to-back months now — with the second season of comedy-drama Masaba Masaba, available July 29 on its platform.

That’s not all. The critically-acclaimed mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows returns for a fourth season, expected July 13 on Disney+ Hotstar in India. And Netflix is ready to offer us a new take on Resident Evil, a property that’s yet to perform critically. Maybe the eighth time is the charm?

Strange Things

Stranger Things 4 Volume 2

When: July 1

Where: Netflix

Five weeks after it premiered, the fourth season of Stranger Things returns for a two-part mega-sized finale. Spoiler alert for Stranger Things 4 Volume 1. The Hawkins Gang’s battle with Vecna — revealed to be Dr. Brenner’s first experiment, One (Jamie Campbell Bower) — will unfold over nearly four hours in total.

“Chapter Eight: Papa” is 85 minutes long, which makes it the second longest Stranger Things episode of all time. But it will actually end up as the third longest, as “Chapter Nine: The Piggyback” — the season four finale — is about two and a half hours long. That’s 150 minutes. It’s by far the longest episode, with the previous record being a cool 100 minutes.

In fact, “Chapter Nine: The Piggyback” is longer than many movies. Except for Stranger Things 4, it’s one of nine episodes. Stranger Things creators The Duffer Brothers — that’s Matt and Ross Duffer — handle writing and directing duties on the two-part Stranger Things 4 Volume 2. No new cast members are expected, but you never know.
