In the crystal structure of the centrosymmetric binuclear title complex, [Ni2(C12H8N2O2S)2(CH3OH)4], there are inter­molecular O—H⋯O, O—H⋯N and O—H⋯S hydrogen bonds. These help to stabilize the structure and link the mol­ecules, forming a three-dimensional network structure. The Ni2+ cation exists in a slightly distorted octahedral NiNO5 coordination environment. The thio­phene rings are disordered over two equivalent conformations with occupancies of 0.881 (3) and 0.119 (3).
