The Duffer Brothers already have a plan for when Season 5 will begin, according to Collider in an exclusive interview. The producers have announced that the franchise's fifth and final season will begin this August.
Ross Duffer said to Colliders own Steve Weintraub that the writer's room will start in the first week of August. Good news for Hawkins fans who are hoping to see more of their favorite Hawkins natives sooner rather than later.
Given the amount of time and effort that is invested to create a global phenomenon like Stranger Things, this means that while the Duffers have the rest of the series already developed, it will be a while before we see anything concrete on our screens a devastating realization after the emotional toll revealed by the previous two episodes of season four. (Hey, at least youll have time to correct mourn!)
The Duffers told Collider that the seasons four and five planned to be unified as one unit rather than the creative team waiting until the season 5 planned to conclude.
We had all of the scripts before we started shooting, so we could see the whole thing as a whole. So, when we got back to the start of the season, we were able to pick up all of five items. So, usually, we feel like the train is going down the tracks and Ross, we and our writers are tumbling down as we're going throughout the season. For the first time, we were able to look at it globally, not only Season Four, but Season Five.
Part of the slow-down in production that allowed the Duffers to get a better look at Hawkins and the Upside Down was a result of the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, but any fan of Stranger Things is sure to be grateful for the additional time spent on the scripts, and that the show's creative team was able to come up with an end for the much-beloved series well in advance, hoping to give viewers the emotional satisfaction theyre looking for.
The first four seasons of Stranger Things, including the last two episodes of Season 4, are now available on Netflix.
