There has been a lot of speculation on when we can see the final season of Stranger Things. The fourth season just released and the wait has been a long one, but it was surprising to find out that the Duffer Brothers and their writing staff haven’t even tackled the fifth season’s scripts once the fourth season was released. So, it seemed like the wait might take quite a bit longer than expected and according to Finn Wolfhard, it may have gotten just a bit longer.
In an interview with GQ answering fan questions, he reveals that Stranger Things will start filming in May. Yet, he also hints that the time the series is likely to release might not be until 2025; a far cry from a late 2024 release everyone might be hoping for. Given that the series is only starting production in a few months and will be quite effects heavy like the previous one, it would make sense that the wait is going to take a while.
He does jokingly state that Netflix and himself would love to milk it with a return in ten years; not a bad idea to see the Upside-Down once again seep into the world and get a chance to see these characters having grown older. The series has struggled a bit with an aging cast as productions continued to get postponed. If they are only filming now, perhaps we’ll get a time jump going into the fifth and final season. There’s also a spinoff being prepared which may also be set up with this final season, but much is unknown about when to expect it.
