Netflix is marking the final weekend of May by returning to the Upside Down. After a three-year wait, Netflix is bringing subscribers the first seven episodes of Stranger Things Season 4 this weekend, with the remaining two episodes set to debut as Season 4 Volume 2 later this summer. In a rare turn of events, Stranger Things marks the only new title headed to the streaming library this weekend, though it joins dozens of other titles already added from the lengthy May 2022 content list.
Netflix offers three subscription plans – the basic plan $10 per month), the standard plan ($15.50 per month), and the premium plan ($20 per month). The streamer also recently debuted a "Netflix Free Section," allowing non-subscribers to watch a selection of the streamer's most beloved originals at no cost. Keep scrolling to see everything coming to Netflix this weekend, and don't forget to check out all of the titles that will be leaving before the end of the month.
'Stranger Things 4: Volume 1'
After nearly three years away, Netflix is returning to Hawkins' Indiana for Stranger Things Season 4, the penultimate season. Set to premiere on Friday, May 7, Volume 1 of the season picks up six months after the Season 3 finale, which saw the epic Battle of Starcourt. Now, several months later, the group of friends are "struggling with the aftermath," and for the first time, they are separated "and navigating the complexities of high school hasn't made things any easier. 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." Volume 2 premieres on July 1.prevnext
