Created by The Duffer Brothers, Stranger Things is a science fiction horror drama television series produced for Netflix. The Duffer Brothers are also the executive producers alongside Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen, Cindy Holland, Brian Wright, Matt Thunell, Karl Gajdusek, and Iain Paterson.
The first season premiered on July 15, 2016, and it has received highly positive reviews from critics. Critics have mostly praised the characterization, atmosphere, acting, soundtrack, directing, writing and homages to the 1980s films. The fourth season is scheduled to premiere this year and it has been already renewed for a fifth season.
So, when is Stranger Things Season 5 releasing? What is the plot? Who would return to reprise their roles? Keep reading to know further details.
Stranger Things Season 5 Release Date
Well, that all depends on when the season begins filming. The Duffer brothers have confirmed that they will begin writing Season 5 in August 2022. There’s currently no confirmation on exactly when filming will begin for Season 5.
Stranger Things Season 5 will be the final season of the show, but it won’t be the end of the Stranger Things universe. The makers are reportedly planning a few spin-offs.
Stranger Things Plot and Cast
Stranger Things has been confirmed to end with Season 5. Although the show has introduced different creatures, threats, and a dimension about which we know very little, there is a limit to what the series can cover.
The show seemed to be heading towards an end in Season 2 but still, there are a few questions and mysteries that it must solve before signing off. Even though Upside Down is the main setting in the series, everything about it is still a mystery and there is a lot to know about the experiments Eleven and the other kids went through under Dr. Brenner’s supervision.
A major risk that the show has faced since the beginning is overstaying its welcome and stretching the story to unbelievable and tiring lengths, showing that it cannot run beyond the fifth season.
The returning cast members for Stranger Things 5 include Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Priya Ferguson, Joe Keery, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Maya Hawke, and more.
