Getting stranger all the time.
The much-anticipated fifth and final season of Stranger Things is not expected to debut on Netflix until 2024, and series creators Matt and Ross Duffer said this week they had changed their initial plans for Season 5 after seeing how the fourth season wound up.
As fans know, the previous season of Stranger Things continued the odyssey of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and the rest of the gang as they battled the inter-dimensional monstrosities from The Upside Down.
And, even though a lot has changed for the kids from Hawkins over the first four seasons, it looks like we ain’t seen nothing yet–if the Duffers can be believed.
During a recent interview with The Wrap, Ross Duffer said the brothers pitched their outline for Season 5 to Netflix “and they responded well to it. It was hard–it’s the end of the story. I saw executives crying. It was wild.”
Duffer added that “it’s not just the story–it’s that this thing has defined us and these Netflix people who have been with us from the beginning. And it’s hard to imagine the journey coming to an end.”
In fact, Duffer explained, they wrote the outline for Season 5 during the pandemic shutdown “and I haven’t even looked at it since because it’s just too overwhelming.”
Fans can only hope many more updates drop between now and 2024 to ease the withdrawal pain–and keep reading Horror News Network for all those updates on Season 5 of Stranger Things on Netflix.
