Season 5 of Stranger Things: Everything We Know So Far
Eleven’s conflict with Vecna was finally resolved in Season 5 of Stranger Things Part 2, which was recently made available on Netflix. Eleven wakes to her abilities in the last two episodes and resolves to defend her companions from this new foe. In the meantime, children at Hawkins come up with a scheme to murder Henry by sending him back to the Upside Down. While Steve, Nancy, and Robin attempt to kill Vecna, Max voluntarily agrees to serve as bait. Eleven and the others manage to defeat Henry in the end, although they aren’t really victorious.
The Upside Down is brought to Hawkins by Vecna, who claims his fourth and last victim. Eleven and her companions prepare for the ultimate conflict against the Mind Flayer, which would serve as the primary plot point of Season 5 of Stranger Things, while the rest of Hawkins believes that an earthquake opened the door to Hell.
Eleven’s tale hasn’t ended yet, according to the Season 4 finale’s epilogue. The Hawkins crew’s last defence against the Upside Down is still to come. Other than that, there isn’t much information available regarding Upside Down’s history. How this mirror realm came into being and Mind Flayer’s precise purpose are still unanswered questions in the episode.
The Duffer Brothers announced that Season 5 would delve further into Upside Down’s backstory in an interview with Variety. The major antagonist of this plot, either Vecna or Mind Flayer, will be identified in the upcoming season. Additionally, there’s a potential that Season 5 will involve a time leap.
While it’s fantastic that Stranger Things will return for Season 5, the showrunners also stated that it will be the series’ last. The fifth season will wrap up the story of this “strong child named Eleven and her courageous pals, of a shattered police chief and a furious mom, of a little town called Hawkins, and an alternative world known as Upside Down,” according to an official statement from the creators.
The same letter also makes references to potential Stranger Things spin-offs. It appears that the creators have more intriguing tales to tell about the Stranger Things universe. It is reasonable to assume that the franchise will continue beyond Season 5, but Eleven’s story will come to an end in that season.
Three years passed between the release of Season 3 and Season 4, yet COVID-19 was one of the key factors in the show’s protracted absence. So, provided Season 5 of Stranger Things filming proceeds without a hitch, we may anticipate the show’s return in 2024. However, it’s obviously too early for Netflix or the Duffer Brothers to provide us with a confirmed release date for Season 5.
