They also shared a statement explaining the future of the show following on from series four, revealing the plans for the story were too big to compress into series.

"With nine scripts, over eight-hundred pages, almost two years of filming, thousands of visual effects shots, and a runtime nearly twice the length of any previous season, Stranger Things 4 was the most challenging season yet, but also the most rewarding one.

"Everyone involved is incredibly proud of the results, and we can't wait to share it with you."

They explained that "given the unprecedented length and to get it to you as soon as possible," season 4 will be released in two volumes.

The team confirmed it will be 'bigger than ever' but also 'the beginning of the end'.

"Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for Stranger Things. At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It proved too large to tell in four, but – as you'll soon see for yourselves – we are now hurtling toward our finale. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last."

The show's account also tweeted with the posters: "Every ending has a beginning," as well as adding this into their bio on Twitter, confirming season four will be Stranger Things' penultimate series, with season five being their last.

From teasers, trailers and posters so far it seems Eleven will be exploring her past a little more in season four, as one poster shows her in the laboratory she was taken to as a young child.
