Sounds like dangerous times up ahead.
Matt and Russ Duffer–the brothers behind the Netflix phenomenon Stranger Things–have been opening up a bit lately about what fans can expect about the much-anticipated fifth and final season. No true spoilers have been dropped (of course), but the curtains have parted a tad.
Just last week, it was reported that the Season 5 premiere episode–written by the Duffers–is entitled Chapter One: The Crawl. The upcoming season is expected start shooting sometime next year, with an eye toward a 2024 debut.
And now, in an interview with Deadline, Ross Duffer revealed that Season 5 is “kind of a culmination of all the seasons–so it’s got a little bit from each. What we’re trying to do is go back to the beginning a little bit–sort of in the tone of Season 1. But also, it’s more aligned with Season 4. So, hopefully, it’s got a little bit of everything.”
Matt Duffer added that Season 5 is different from the others because the danger is “all kind of out in the open” now–not just to the Hawkins teenagers, but to their parents and to the rest of the community.
The Duffers have also said the upcoming season will be spent largely in Hawkins and in the Upside Down’s mirror universe. “The big reveals coming in Season 5 are really about the Upside Down itself,” Ross Duffer said.
The show’s stars include Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Fink, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo.
