Daniel D’Addario, Variety
The singing moments — including, again, in the cadences of Kate Bush, this season’s musical patron witch — are truly on a different level than anything the streamer has done in recent times. And they’re set against the backdrop of episodes that seem designed to make the Duffer Brothers showrunning aspirations crystal clear: the finale is two and a half hours long, a length that the viewer really feels. It’s probably not an episode that many franchise fans this side of standom will watch all at once, diluting the season’s cumulative power and impact in the name of creating a monument to everything. what Netflix will allow.
Carly Lane, Collider
It’s a testament to the strengths of the show and its cast that Season 4 manages to prolong moments of hope and emotion even amid larger circumstances that could literally signal the end of the world. The performances of these last episodes are incredibly good.

Visually, the second volume of the season delivers a blockbuster experience, full of epic special effects, though it’s a lot closer to a gory horror movie than the ET and Goonies-style adventures of its first years. This overall darkness, combined with the endlessly frenetic pace of the season, can make long episodes exhausting to watch.
Alex Stedman, IGN
It always ends up feeling a little heavy – a hard thing to avoid when juggling so many characters and storylines – but ultimately, these four hours contain just about everything a Stranger Things fan could ask for.
Tyler Treese, ComingSoon.Net
With incredible action and even more memorable characters, Stranger Things continues to be some of the best television streaming has to offer. Netflix is sparing no expense in making Season 4, Volume 2 its most exciting and satisfying conclusion yet.
Fay Watson, GamesRadar
What is clear, however, is that Stranger Things has lost none of its magic. Volume 2 contains all the elements that made this show a phenomenon: witty dialogue, heartfelt characters struggling with growing up, and plenty of ’80s nostalgia. But it’s also a new Stranger Things. . Both the series and the characters are maturing… The ingredients are there for a season 5 that could conclude one of the best science fiction series ever created. If they can maintain the quality after Season 4, then that’s exactly what’s happening.
So far, including new reviews, Season 4 has maintained an 89% Fresh overall rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. This kept it consistent with Season 3, which was also a hit with fans when it released in 2019. However, the show hit a critical climax with stranger things season 1, which premiered at 97%, dipping to 94% for season 2.
This stable but slightly less enthusiastic rating for stranger things season 4 part 2 certainly seems to be consistent with the current critical consensus. While these episodes helped season 4 end strongly, the first half of the series was slightly more divisive for critics. The change in tone after several years away has thrown some people on a loop, but now that these final episodes have come full circle it’s likely that many people will go back and reconsider their initial opinion of the opening slate of seven episodes.
