As of this Friday, the last episodes of . are finally on Netflix Stranger Things (2016– ) Season 4. For anyone who has already seen these two (extra long) episodes, the big question is: when will season 5 of the world-famous horror series be released on the streaming service? In this article we will discuss all the information we already have about this.
Stranger Things ends with season 5
Creators (and brothers) Matt and Ross Duffer announced the fifth season last February, writing in a letter to fans that the series will end with this season. Originally, the series was supposed to consist of only four seasons, but that is no longer enough, they explain.
Seven years ago, we planned the full story arc for Stranger Things. At the time, we predicted that the story would last four to five seasons. It turned out to be too big to tell in four, but – as you will soon see for yourself – we are now racing towards our final. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last.

Although virtually nothing is known about the fifth season, the Duffer brothers have already revealed that there will be a significant time jump from season 4 to 5.
Stranger Things season 5 release date on Netflix
The Duffer brothers and Netflix would have liked to have recorded the two seasons in succession, but unfortunately that did not work because it took so much time to finish the long final episodes, the series makers explain. So the shooting of season 5 has yet to take place.
Stranger Things (2016– )
Watch on Netflix • After a little boy goes missing under very suspicious circumstances, mysterious things come to light in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana in 1980s, including secret experiments, supernatural powers and a strange girl.
Fortunately, we won’t have to wait as long as we did with season 4 this time around, if it’s up to Matt and Ross Duffer, especially since the coronavirus seems to throw less spanner in the works this time. The preparations for season 5 are already done.
The gap should be a lot shorter this time, due to the fact that we already have a first draft, and we can’t imagine that there will be another six-month forced stop [vanwege de pandemie]†
However, it is expected that the final season will no longer appear on Netflix this year. On average, there were always about eight months between the recording and the release on Netflix. That’s why season 5 is expected around the end of 2023 will be on display. Hopefully Netflix will come up with more positive news and a possible release date soon. To stay informed?
