The fourth season of Stranger Things will premiere in May, but the Duffer Brothers revealed the first details about season 5 today. Unfortunately, not everyone will be thrilled by the news.
In the same open letter to fans that addressed the season 4 launch date, the two confirmed that the fifth and final season will be the series’ final installment. Behind the scenes, this is hardly a surprise; in fact, it was essentially planned from the start.
“Seven years ago, we mapped out the whole arc of Stranger Things’ plot. We estimated that the plot would span four to five seasons at the time. It was too huge to tell in four parts, but as you will see, we are now rushing toward our conclusion.”

In an open letter to fans, the Duffer Brothers stated that season five will be the last. The authors noted, “Seven years ago, we plotted out the whole Stranger Things story arc.
Will there be a fifth season?
Yes, Stranger Things will return for a fifth and final season.
Previously, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ross Duffer stated: “Season four is not the finale. We know what the end is and when it will occur. The epidemic has allowed us to plan ahead and choose what is best for the show. Beginning to fill this out gave us a clearer notion of how lengthy this narrative should be.”
It appears that the Duffer brothers are confident in their ability to produce another legendary season of the show, which is an encouraging indication.
Noah told UK show Lorraine: “I find it unlikely that [season 4] is the end. I believe we would know if this is the final meeting.”
In an interview with ET, Canada Harbour stated, “I guess on my Netflix talking points list, I’m not meant to say that there is a fifth season, but because Jessica mentioned it, I will say that there is. I’m also not supposed to know anything about it, but I’ll say that anyway.”
If you were on set with someone working on a programme that potentially has a fifth season, I’m sure those individuals, if you were as close to them as I am with the Duffer Brothers, would bring up potential plot points for the fifth season.
When will Season 5 of Stranger Things premiere?
Again, this depends on when the season’s production begins. Due to the coronavirus epidemic, the fourth season’s production was significantly delayed. As a result, the previously rumoured release date of January 2021 has been moved back to 2022.
The fourth season of Stranger Things concluded production in August/September 2021, and the premiere date for the first half of season four has been set for May 2022.
Once season 5 production begins, we will know more. Fans won’t likely see Stranger Things 5 for at least a year and a half. Perhaps longer.
Will Season 5 of Stranger Things be the last?
Yes. Season 5 of Stranger Things will be the last season, but it will not mark the end of the Stranger Things world.
In a statement outlining the future of the series and the release date for season 4, the Duffer brothers said, “There are many more thrilling tales to tell inside the Stranger Things universe, including new mysteries, adventures, and surprising heroes.”
David Harbour stated in an interview with Collider that season 4 lays the framework for the show’s conclusion: “We’re bringing new material, but we’re also tightening and winding up in a specific way. To give it a clear, clean, particular, and definitive conclusion at some point, which I can’t really discuss.”
In a separate interview with Collider, producer Shawn Levy said that he and the Duffer brothers had the finish insight: “There is a plan, and it too will be communicated not quite as soon as a sense of when season four will be released, but soon.”
He continued: “I can state the following. No one is making it up as we go along, and there is, if you will, an endgame.”
"At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It proved too large to tell in four, but — as you'll see for yourselves — we are now hurtling toward our finale." https://t.co/d9Ta4Mf99m
