Stranger…and stranger still.
As if the fifth and final season of Stranger Things didn’t have enough suspense, now fans will have to contend with the Writers Guild of America strike pushing back the start of production on the next chapter of the Netflix series.
Series creators and showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer this week temporarily halted work on the show, according to a report on Deadline. “While we’re excited to start production,” the brothers tweeted, “it’s not possible during the strike. We hope a fair deal is reached soon so we can all get back to work.”
On the positive side, the scripts for Season 5 reportedly have been written, so shooting should be able to start fairly smoothly when the negotiations are wrapped up.
The Duffers have said a major goal for this final season is to “stick the landing.” Matt Duffer added, “Characters are already going to be in action–they have a goal and a drive–so this season should feel real different. I’m sure the wrap-up will be a lot longer with, like, eight endings.”
