For Stranger Things‘ fifth season, The Party will remain put. Season five of the Netflix drama will take place at home, despite season four visiting various, incredibly diverse locales. The fifth and final season of Stranger Things “will absolutely be more Hawkins-centric,” executive producer Shawn Levy assured additional sources.
The season four conclusion featured Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Will (Noah Schnapp), Hopper (David Harbour), and Joyce (Winona Ryder) reunited with their loved ones in Hawkins just as the town was figuratively being torn apart. Numbers have power, right?
What is known about the alleged release date for Stranger Things 5? Shawn didn’t say much about it, but he did suggest that “it ain’t going to be smaller.”
“Our ambitions remain pretty high, and the way the audience has grown along with the cinematic scope of the show, I don’t expect that we’re going to mess with that approach going into season five.” He stated to other sources.
Shawn is alluding to season four’s extra-length run of two feature-length episodes. Therefore, it appears that Hawkins will return in more ways than one! And that’s not the only thing to anticipate.
Shawn said, “We are hard at work to stick the landing,” adding that season five will provide the necessary closure.
The fifth and final season has been well planned out by the Duffer Brothers, however, it is unknown when production will start.
Who knows how long season five will take, according to Sadie Sink, who told Deadline that the fourth season took a total of two years. “The Duffers clearly realize the fans will be anxiously expecting the fifth season, but I don’t think they’re going hurry it. They intend to provide their greatest last season they can.”
Although they might not hurry things up, it appears that the number of scenes in the final season is being reduced. Although the Duffer Brothers expect the finale to be another feature-length episode, they have promised that the subsequent episodes will be a little bit shorter.
