stranger things is finally in its endgame, with only one season left of the hit Netflix series.
After the release of the fourth season in June and July 2022, split into two volumes, stranger things is not expected to return before the end of 2023.
While it will be some time before we fully shut down residents of Hawkins, Indiana, the show’s cast and creators have already given some hints as to what to expect.
Here’s everything we know stranger things 5…
When will it be released?
David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper on the show, has claimed the series is likely to start filming next year, with writing taking up most of the rest of 2021.
However, he added that it would “probably come out in mid-2024” based on the “track record” of the series of delays.
What will it be about?
As early as June 2022, it was confirmed that there will be a significant time jump in the new series, bringing the child characters closer to their real-life counterparts as they age.
Ross Duffer, who created the series with his brother Matt, said they would have liked to film seasons four and five “back-to-back,” but it wasn’t “feasible.”
The Duffers later teased that season five might include more deaths as “we’re heading towards the end.” The reveal came after criticism from two stars of the series, including Millie Bobby Brown, over the creators’ apparent reluctance to kill off main characters.
How many episodes will it have?
While the episode count has yet to be announced, the Duffer brothers have promised that season four’s marathon runs won’t return.

“The only reason we don’t calculate that long is because [season four]When you watch it, it takes almost two hours for our kids to really get sucked into a supernatural mystery,” they said.
“You get to know them, you get to know them in their lives, they struggle to adjust to high school and so on, Steve tries to find a date, all of that. None of that is obviously going to happen [in season five].”
However, they have essentially confirmed plans to make the latest outing “a 2.5-hour episode.”
Will it be the last season?
That has already been confirmed stranger thingsThe fifth season of will indeed be the last.
However, Harbor has suggested that spin-off projects will be announced closer to the final season’s release.
“I think as soon as the show ends, or maybe six months before it ends, you’ll hear about the planned spin-offs,” he said while revealing who he’d like to play in a younger version of Hopper.
