While we wait for the Stranger Things season 5 unveiling, here’s everything we know so far about the Netflix series finale.
This article will be updated by Netflix and the Stranger Things series team as new information becomes available.
It is one of the most popular series on Netflix and its next season is eagerly awaited. After an explosive Season 4 episode, Stranger Things will soon return to the stage for new terrifying and thrilling adventures of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and the gang.
While we await Stranger Things season 5, here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming episode of Matt and Ross Duffer’s series.
How does Stranger Things season 4 end?
Warning, spoilers. Consisting of nine episodes, Season 4 of Stranger Things allows the show’s heroes to evolve on their own before coming together for better or worse in Hawkins.
After a series of mysterious murders, the gang learns that a sinister being is behind it all: Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower), aka Henry Creel, aka 001, Dr. Martin Brenner (Matthew Modine) The first guinea pig., found in eleven labs.
The residents of Hawkins believe that the tragic events affecting the town are caused by a Satanist sect, while the group hatches a shocking plan to confront Vecna. But it doesn’t go according to plan and affects several characters, including Max (Sadie Sink), who is in a coma, and Eddie (Joseph Quinn), who is dead.
The rest of the gang manages to take out (or nearly so) Vecna, but the hardest part is yet to come, as Season 4 ends with a scene of Hawkins being devastated by the Upside Down, as Vecna has The door is a beginning. Stranger Things Season 5 will have a lot of questions to answer.
When will season 5 of Stranger Things be released?
We’ll have to wait before we can see Stranger Things season 5 on Netflix. Although the Duffer brothers began writing this new season long ago, set to debut in August 2022, it takes time to produce a series of this scale. And Finn Wolfhard (Mike) already warned fans that it should be released in 2025.
But then came an event that turned everything around: a writers’ strike in Hollywood—combined with an actors’ strike—suspended production on the 5th season of Stranger Things. The Duffer brothers support the move and will not return to work until the writer and actor have won their case.
“The Duffer Brothers are here. The writing doesn’t stop once filming begins. While we look forward to starting production with our amazing cast and crew, that just isn’t possible during this strike. We hope to resume soon.” Only a reasonable agreement can be reached so everyone can get back to work. Until then…”
What will be the story of Stranger Things Season 5? how many episodes?
Season 4’s episodes were particularly long, ranging from 64 to 150 minutes in length, and the show’s producers told Collider that Season 5 shouldn’t have been so long. They aim for 10 hours to tell the story, and that is in 8 episodes, the first of which is called “The Crawl”.
The story that follows will take place entirely in Hawkins, as confirmed on the podcast “Happy Sad Confused”. So it will be a true homecoming with an atmosphere reminiscent of the first season of Stranger Things:
We want to go back to a lot of the things that we did in Season 1. We had so many original bands and pairings in Season 1 – there’s something cool about coming full circle.
And a jump in time can be expected for these upcoming episodes. That’s a certainty for Ross Duffer, considering how quickly the cast has grown and that Season 4 production has been delayed due to the pandemic.
Millie Bobby Brown, Jamie Campbell Bower… who is back for Stranger Things season 5?
Most of the main cast of Stranger Things will apparently be back for Season 5. Among them we find: Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers), David Harbor (Jim Hopper), Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Noah Schnapp (Will) , Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), Joe Keery (Steve), Maya Hawke (Robin), Brett Gelman (Murray Bauman) and Priya Ferguson (Erica).
The uncertainty looms large over the two actors, but it’s hard to imagine their absence from Season 5, like Sadie Sink, whose character Max lapsed into a coma at the end of Season 4.
“Just don’t be Tom Holland”: The director of Stranger Things makes a controversial demand from one of the series’ stars
and Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays big bad Wecna, who’s always around the Upside Down to totally invade Hawkins. The actor also promised a gruesome revenge on his character.
Those confirmed to have died at the end of Season 4 include Jason Carver (Mason Dye), Chrissie’s (Grace Van Dyne) ex-boyfriend Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine) and, of course, fan favorite Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn ) Are included. Even though some people have developed a crazy theory about a possible return of the character.
What are the Stranger Things season 5 news?
The Duffer brothers promised: No new characters in Stranger Things season 5, because they have yet to meet. And yet, Netflix recently told us that actress Linda Hamilton, best known as Sarah Connor in the Terminator saga, will be part of the cast of new episodes of the series.
Another newcomer to the Stranger Things team: director Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane, The Predator: The Hunt) has been cast for select episodes of season 5, as announced by Netflix.
Is season 5 really the last?
Yes, Stranger Things Season 5 will be its last. The Duffer brothers, who already knew very well how the series would end, announced it on their Twitter account even before the release of the fourth part of the episode.
“Seven years ago, we planned the entire story of Stranger Things. At the time, we estimated the story would run for four to five seasons. Now we are moving towards the grand finale. Season 4 will be the last season, Season 5 will be the last.”The series creators explained.
The first four seasons of Stranger Things are available on Netflix.
