After a successful fourth season on Netflix, it’s bizarre to think that work is only just really getting going on the final season of Stranger Things. Shortly after its release, the official writers’ account on Twitter revealed that they started work on the fifth and (sadly) final season of the Netflix cult hit.
Now, they have shared a new update as it seems like they are now grinding out the upcoming final season of Stranger Things. Of course, they aren’t teasing any plot lines or even characters but it definitely looks like they are only steps away from starting work on the episodes. What is surprising though is that this may have confirmed that the final season will consist of eight episodes.
Of course, things might change as they prepare the episodes and various plotlines but it does seem safe to say that eight episodes is what they are currently going for with the release. The series creators, the Duffer brothers, have hinted that they are avoiding another nine-episode season and trying to keep it smaller in the last season. While we’ll have to wait quite a bit until we get more details on what exactly the season has to offer, it looks like things are finally moving along for the final confrontation between Vecna and Eleven.
