“We’re walking into season five. I’ve got a couple more months to train. We start shooting that in June, though, and that will be the final season,” he starts, “I did a lot of training for season four. Hopper was in a very specific position, in 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.”

“You know, there’s a sadness there, But also, we’ve all grown up. It is time for us to leave that nest and try other things and different projects.”

A release date for the new season has not been announced just yet, but it seems shooting is to start in June. The anticipation is on.

Season 4 Re-cap

Spoiler Alert! Let’s recap last season in order to get you up to speed for season 5.

Stranger Things was brought to Netflix nearly 9 years ago. The first season premiered in July 2016. The story revolves around a group of friends in Hawkins, Indiana, who investigate supernatural events and government conspiracies after their friend Will [Noah Schnapp] disappears under mysterious circumstances. Along the way, they meet a girl named Eleven [Millie Bobby Brown] who possesses incredible powers and helps them in their quest. As they delve deeper into the mystery, they uncover a dark supernatural force called the Upside Down, a parallel dimension filled with dangerous creatures and shadowy government agents who are trying to cover up the truth.

Fast forward to season 4, Mike Wheeler [Finn Wolfhard] and his group of friends are forced to reconcile in order to get to the bottom of some more supernatural mysteries. Viewers discover some more information on Eleven and an old friend, ‘Number One’ who turns out to be the monster responsible for the unexplainable murders around town, Vecna. In the last episode, we see the people of Hawkins moving out of the city due to an ‘earthquake’, Mike and his friends find refuge in a cabin although they can’t help but notice the black and red smoke coming from the skyline.

There have been many debates on what this new season could entail, but we are sure that the Duffer Brothers will give viewers an ending that serves the series justice.
