All good things must eventually come to an end. Therefore, we expected this day to arrive. The Duffer Brothers, creators of the acclaimed Netflix sci-fi series Stranger Things, confirmed on February 17, 2022, that the upcoming fifth season would be it’s last. It will be tough to say goodbye, but our beloved Dungeons & Dragons characters still have some spectacular adventures ahead of them.
Throughout the series, we’ve witnessed Eleven, Will, Mike, Lucas, Dustin, Max, and the rest of the Hawkins gang battle demogorgons, explore the mysteries of the Upside Down, take on Russians and Mind Flayers at the Starcourt Mall, and attempt to defeat the latest villain of the alternate dimension, Vecna.
Season 4 of Stranger Things is now on Netflix, and the release has us thinking about the show’s potential conclusion in season 5. More importantly, when will it first air? Like season 4, would it be broken up into two parts? So many issues need clarification.
Yet, we are here to simplify everything for you. Find out all we know about Stranger Things season 5 below.
When Is Stranger Things Season 5?
Season 5 of Stranger Things is occurring, and it will be the last.
Ross Duffer stated, “Season four won’t be the conclusion,” in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. We are aware of the outcome and its impending arrival. This [pandemic] has allowed us to plan and make the most significant decisions for the performance. The time required to convey the story was better estimated once we began filling that out.
As impressive as season 4 was, it’s encouraging to hear that the Duffer brothers are sure they can top it with season 5.
This, of course, is contingent upon when production on the new season actually gets underway. The Duffer brothers announced that they had begun work on Season 5 in August of 2022. Some of the actors have dropped hints that production would start in the middle of 2023, suggesting a possible late-2024 release.
“Don’t hold us to that,” the Duffer brothers told Variety, “but the gap should be quite a little shorter this time, given that we already have a first framework, and we can’t think there will be another six-month forced break.”
David Harbour told JoBlo Celebrity Interviews that the show’s final season might take up to nine months to film. Once season 5 begins filming, viewers will get a clearer picture.
Since Finn Wolfhard has stated that he will be 22 years old by the time the fifth season is aired, he has created conjecture that the wait for the new episodes will extend into the year 2025. On the 23rd of December, 2024, Finn will turn 22 years old.
“By the time it comes out, I will be 22 I believe,” Finn told GQ. When Stranger Things 5 premieres, I can celebrate alongside Gaten, Caleb, and Noah.
Is Season 5 Of Stranger Things Already In Production?
On Saturday, at the Middle East Film & Comic Expo in Abu Dhabi, David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper on the Netflix series, announced that production on the next season would begin in a few months.
He said he needs more practice time before production begins in June of this year.
David declared, “We are entering the fifth season. There are still a few months for me to become ready. On the other hand, production for the final season begins in June.
“I did a lot of training for season four. He [Hopper] was in a very specific position, that Russian prison. It was about making him a different guy and sort of shedding a layer of himself physically, mentally, and emotionally. But now he’s back in town, he’s back in America where they have cheeseburgers, so he will be well-fed.”
That’s not too far off, either.
