In four days the end of life of PHP 7.4 will be reached and no updates will be available anymore for this version of PHP, even if security problems are detected. Will the next release of webtrees still support PHP 7.4?

Yes. I plan to create a new release for webtrees 2.1 this weekend.
webtrees 2.1 runs on PHP 7.4 - 8.2

I see that over half of webtrees sites are still running PHP 7.4 - dev.webtrees.net/statistics.html
So, support for webtrees 2.1 will continue for some time...

At the end of 2022 (or early 2023), I will create webtrees 2.2 - which will require PHP 8.0

Which is not really true for all cases.

Serious operating systems which are aimed at professional usage have longer support. For example, RHEL and forks of it have official PHP7 support until the OS reaches EOL, which is eg for RHEL8 in 2029. Until then, Bugfixes will be backported:
