The Upside Down is right around the corner.
Production on the fifth and final season of the Netflix horror hit Stranger Things has been delayed (along with lots of other genre projects) due to the writers’ and actors’ strikes, but with the picket signs put away, things are looking up.
No debut date for the next season has yet been announced, but–according to a report on Deadline–shooting on the final go ’round will start in just a few weeks.
And, as previously reported, show creators Matt and Ross Duffer have been working on the scripts for the upcoming episodes. Producer/director Shawn Levy recently told The Wrap “the Duffers have been hard at work since the writers’ strike ended. The cast and crew are raring to go.”
Stranger Things–created by the Duffer Brothers for Netflix back in 2016–is set in the 1980s and follows the residents of Hawkins, Ind. as they battle against a hostile alien dimension known the Upside Down. The ensemble cast has so far included such standouts as Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard and Millie Bobby Brown.
