One more month until Hawkins.

Stranger Things fans–along with millions of other movie lovers–had to suffer through the uncertainties of the actors’ and writers’ strikes earlier this year, but some good (and definitive) news dropped this week concerning the fate of the Netflix show’s fifth and final season.

The show’s much-anticipated Season 5–with creators and showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer still at the helm–is expected to start filming by Jan. 8, 2024, according to a report on Deadline. No debut date for the final season has yet been announced.

Cast members reportedly are already gearing up in Atlanta, with table reads scheduled the rest of this month before the actors step in front of the cameras after the holidays. Scripts are expected to be wrapped up by that time.

The Duffers–who have said a major goal with this final season is “to stick the landing”–will work with such Stranger Things veterans as Winona Ryder, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Galen Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton.

Stranger Things–set in the 1980s–follows the residents of Hawkins, Ind. as they battle against a hostile alien dimension known as the Upside Down. The series debuted on Netflix back in 2016.
