It’s the final week of June and the start of July this week and that means a ton of new movies and shows are coming including the second half of season 4 of Stranger Things. But on top of that, you can also find a new drama and the new season of a Netflix Original sitcom.
The thing that everyone will be talking about and watching this week will be the second part of season 4 of Stranger Things. When we last left the kids, Eleven was stuck with Dr. Brenner after remembering how Vecna was created and who he was before he turned. Nancy also just dropped into the Upside-Down so it will be interesting to see what her song is and how she gets out of there.
Hopper, Joyce, and Murray also have to get back to Hawkins if they want to help the kids fight off Vecna.
The final two (very long) episodes of season 4 hit Netflix on Friday, July 1, 2022.
