The sooner, the better.
The fifth and final season of the Netflix streaming champ Stranger Things is not expected to debut until sometime next year, but one of the show’s stars has indicated filming will start in just a few months.
Noah Schnapp–who has played Will Byers on the hit series since 2016–said during a recent Instagram live session that Season 5 will start shooting in May.

While that’s good news for the show’s fanbase, given the track record of the series, a debut date may still be more than a year away. Stay tuned.
The show’s Season 5 writers’ room opened up last summer, and all indicators point to the storyline involving an all-hands-on-deck confrontation with the villainous Vecna, who seemingly has opened a bridge that brings The Upside Down into the real world.
Series creators Matt and Ross Duffer have already said their outline for the final season was well received by the powers-that-be at Netflix. “I saw executives crying,” Ross Duffer said. “It was wild. This thing has defined us and these Netflix people from the beginning. It’s hard to imagine the journey coming to an end.”
