It looks like we’re going to have another time skip going into the fifth and final season of the Duffer Brothers‘ iconic Stranger Things series. We’ve explored the 80s and all of its memorabilia but it looks like the cast’s continued aging has become a bit of an issue for the team to keep up and as a result, Ross Duffer confirmed that there will be another time skip going into the final season.
I’m sure we will do a time jump. Ideally, we’d have shot [Seasons 4 and 5] back to back, but there was just no feasible way to do thatRoss Duffer
There were some moments where the age differences from the last season going into the current one stood out, and it seems the team is very aware of that fact. So, they will try to remedy it with another time skip. Surprisingly, they revealed that they are still actively working on Season 4, as two more episodes are set to release in July.
Believe it or not, we’re still working on Season 4. We’re trying to finish the final two episodes, they’re so massive.Ross Duffer
So, they haven’t even started writing anything for the fifth season. Some time ago they did reveal that they already pitched their vision of the ending, and now it’s just about getting all the episodes together to bring that vision to life. All eyes are currently on the final episodes of Season 4 and it seems we won’t get an update on the final season for some time.
