It is hard to find a TV series that lives up to its hype. But when it comes to Stranger Things, the series definitely lives up to its hype. The show created a worldwide buzz after it first came out in 2016, and too for all the right reasons.

So if you haven’t watched the show still, then I don’t know what you are waiting for. The last season of the show is going to release sometime next year.

  • According to actor Noah Schnapp, the filming for Season 5 will start in May of 2023.
  • Since the filming is starting mid-year in 2023, we can expect the release date to be somewhere between 2024.
  • It has already been released that Season 5 Episode 1 will be named “The Crawl.”
  • The vibe for season 5 will be much like season 1 but on a larger scale.
  • The story is going to take place fully in Hawkins and will focus on Will Byers.

But whether season 5 is happening or not, Ross Duffer said about that, “Season four won’t be the end. We know what the end is, and we know when it is. (The Pandemic) has given us time to look ahead, and figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story.”

Talking further about what to expect from season 5, the Duffer brothers said, “It’s going to feel a lot larger in scale than season 1, but we wanna go back to a lot of things we did in season 1, a lot of original groupings and pairings – there’s something nice about coming full scale. It’s gonna feel bigger than season 1, much more massive in terms of the stakes and the scale, but we wanna revisit a lot of things we did in season 1.”
