Season 5 of Stranger Things has started production in earnest. The Duffer Brothers and their team are writing the final season of the Netflix series. They announced the news on Twitter, with an image of a blank whiteboard bearing the Stranger Things season 5 logo and another whiteboard revealing the season will consist of eight episodes.
Although a release date hasn’t been set, the producers have already hinted at some things we may anticipate from returning to the Upside Down, including a time jump and an epic feature-length finale.
STRANGER THINGS SEASON 4 WAS CONFIRMED BEFORE THE THIRD SEASON HIT NETFLIX, BUT IT’S NOW ARRIVED AS A MINOR SURPRISE.
The show has returned with a new batch of episodes that will run for eight hours instead of seven like last time. The fourth installment arrives on Halloween night and looks just as packed with monsters, romance and heartbreak as in previous seasons—and maybe even more so.
Season one was released in July 2017, while season two premiered in October 2018; both had 16 episodes each (although there were some special editions). Season three ran for 12 hours over eight weeks starting July 4th, 2019; this is how long we expect the new batch will take us too!
THE FIFTH SEASON OF STRANGER THINGS IS A LOCK, BUT WE’RE STILL WAITING ON OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION.
The show’s creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, have been busy working on other projects since the end of Season 4. They announced that they would be returning for a final batch of episodes in late 2018 but didn’t give an exact release date—or even promise when it would start airing (it’s currently set to premiere sometime in 2020). Meanwhile, the stars have all signed up for another round with their characters: Finn Wolfhard and Gaten Matarazzo will reprise their roles as Dustin Henderson and Lucas Sinclair; Natalia Dyer will return as Nancy Wheeler; Charlie Heaton is confirmed as Max Mayfield; Joe Keery will return as Steve Harrington; Noah Schnapp has agreed to appear once again as Will Byers; Sadie Sink has promised audiences she’ll be back too!
THE RELEASE DATE FOR SEASON 5 OF STRANGE THINGS
Season 5 of Stranger Things has begun to be written by The Duffer Brothers. The announcement was announced in early August 2022 when the writers’ room tweeted a photo of a blank whiteboard to signify “day one”. However, the show’s cameras have not yet begun to roll.
It’s possible that Maya Hawke’s Robin Buckley became too important a character for the show to do without her in any future seasons, so expect her to make her return.
Robin Buckley is a new character introduced in season 4, which means it’s possible that she could be killed off.
The show has a long history of killing off popular characters left and right, depending on how the story progresses. Most recently, Barb Holland (Shannon Purser) was killed off after just one episode of Stranger Things Season 3; her death was sad but necessary for the story to move forward.
In addition to Robin being new to the series, she’s also been replaced by another actress: Maya Hawke will take over as Robin from now until Stranger Things Season 6 begins filming next year—although rumours have emerged online saying that Hawke might not actually appear in every episode either!
THE PLOT OF STRANGER THINGS SEASON 5
Strange Things 4’s Vecna
The Stranger Things season 5 narrative is currently unknown. Still, the Duffer Brothers have indicated that they have the entire series ending pretty well figured out and have provided some hints as to what to expect. We know the ending, ” said Matt Duffer in a recent SFX interview. It could change, but it’s unlikely because this conclusion seems correct and always has… It seems somewhat inevitable as well. When you finally think of it, you think, “Oh yeah, that’s definitely what it needs to be.
THE CAST OF STRANGER THINGS SEASON 5
It’s doubtful that any of the core characters will part ways before Stranger Things ends, so season 5 should see them all back together. That implies that Sadie Sink if she manages to awaken from her coma, will play Max Mayfield once more, Finn Wolfhard will return as Mike Wheeler, and Millie Bobby Brown will return as Eleven.
Maya Hawke (Robin Buckley), Joe Keery (Steve Harrington), Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers), Brett Gelman, and others are most likely preparing to make a comeback.
Season 5 could also see Eleven gain some more control over her powers.
The show has already seen Eleven gain some control over her powers, but it’s possible that she could gain even more. According to the show’s creators, season 5 may see her develop the ability to teleport and communicate with other telepaths. This could open up a world of possibilities for what she could do with those abilities—she could teleport herself out of danger or heal people needing help by focusing on their minds. She might also be able to use her powers for time travel!
Stranger Things season 5 is going to be released on Netflix in 2021.
That’s the word from a source who spoke with People Magazine, but don’t take it for granted that it’s true! We’re ensuring you know what’s coming next for Season 4 of Stranger Things.
The last few episodes have focused on Will Byers and his friends trying to find a way out of their underground prison so they can save their friend Barb (Shannon Purser). If this sounds familiar, it should—it was the same thing as Season 3 when she went missing (though there was more fighting involved). Will also has some connection with another character named Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), who left Hawkins after her mother died and abandoned her life there because she believed that doing so would keep her safe from whatever evil lurks in the darkness around them all each night..
