Stranger Things Season 5 – All that You Need to Know!

The Stranger Things show’s strong ratings and status as a markedly innovative piece of art have more or less enraptured every single heart. Seeing its worldwide popularity, it is not a shock that Stranger Things Season 5 is the talk of the town. All eyes are set on the forthcoming season that will bring with it more horror, suspense, deaths, eighties, great music, and new action-packed scenes.

Frequent crossovers of characters between Hawkins and Upside Down in this integrated universe of Stranger Things have hooked its audience on this show for almost a decade. Moreover, the addition of the looming sound of the grandfather clock and Vecna in Season 4 is also a cherry on the top. If I were to say that the clock’s chiming leaves the audience’s hearts pumping with fear, I wouldn’t be wrong.

Stranger Things does wonders with its enticing visual and breath-taking storyline! Because it seems that the fans can also hear the ticking sound of that grandfather clock. As they patiently wait for the official release of the first episode of Season Finale (not for the fearsome Vecna)!

Need to know all about the upcoming Season 5? We are back with all the juicy details you want about the Stranger Things Season Finale.

Premiere Date of The Stranger Things Season 5:

According to resources, there is no confirmed release date for Season 5. Although the Duffer brothers already planned out the whole show seven years ago, it is said that the duo is taking a break in July. They would most probably start writing for Season 5 in August 2022, which means that the filming will officially begin somewhere around 2023 and will premiere in the year 2024.

David Harbour suggested the same in an interview with GQ and further elaborated that:

They’re finishing writing it this year, and they need to prep and stuff, so hopefully it’ll be this year. But I think that’s the plan. So it’d probably come out mid-2024, based on our track record.

The Returning Cast of The Stranger Things Season 5:

Good news for the Stranger Things fandom! The majority of the original cast is returning for Stranger Things Season 5 and fans are definitely here to see the whole gang in action again:

Besides them, it appears that Jamie Campbell Bower will also appear as Vecna in Season 5. Seeing that he already knows about the story arc of the Season Finale:

Let me put it this way: I know about Season Five.

Bower has also shared in his interview with Variety that:

As far as I’m concerned, he ain’t finished. There’s a lot more that he needs to do. Eleven is still out there. She’s one of his main targets. Will say, ‘I can still feel him’. I think there’s a connection there, and I would be interested to see if that’s explored.

However, it is still sad to know that some of our favorite new characters won’t be in the finale, who won our hearts in just a short time. Such as; Eddie and Chrissy. Clearly, no Stranger Things fan can ever forget about the legendary  ‘Chrissy Wakeup Song’.
