Let’s talk about them Stranger Things season 5 release date. We know it seemed like only a few months ago when we tried to figure out the release date for the final season, but with the second installment of episodes released in early July, we’re already ready for more. Luckily, we have pretty solid information on when Season 5 is likely to drop from multiple sources.
What is the release date of Stranger Things Season 5?
We expect Stranger Things season 5 to be released in mid-2024. While others are speculating we’ll see a much earlier date, including a very optimistic forecast of late 2023, a recent statement in GQ from actor David Harbor, who plays Jim Hopper on the show, predicts otherwise:
I think we will [shoot] next year. They’re going to finish writing it this year, and they have to prepare and keep going, so hopefully it’ll be this year. But I think that’s the plan. So, based on our track record, it would likely come out in mid-2024.
This is consistent with what showrunners The Duffer Brothers said in an interview with Collider. Ross Duffer said they would “take a little vacation in July” and then go to the author’s room “that first week of August.” Given the importance of the final season, they’ll likely need the rest of the year to prepare the scripts and make sure they have everything in place before filming begins in mid-2023. A time jump is expected for the characters by 2024. Most of the teenage actors are well into their college years.
On the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the showrunners say that while they’ve already cemented the final 30 minutes of the series in their minds, the rest of season five is very “fuzzy.” Matt Duffer elaborated further, saying that he envisions the season’s synopsis to be quite lengthy: “It’s going to be ‘Return of the King’-ish with about eight endings.”
Additionally, Stranger Things has had a fairly consistent summer release. Except for Season 2 which was released October 27, 2017, Season 1 (July 15, 2016), Season 3 (July 4, 2019) and Season 4 (May 27, 2022 for volume 1; July 1 , 2022 for volume 2) suggest a similar midsummer date for season five. We also expect the final season to be split into two parts as well, so it’s possible we’ll see the first set of Season 5 episodes in May 2024 as well.
