Stranger Things Season 5 Release Date: Netflix is getting ready for one last trip to The Upside Down, as season five of Stranger Things will be the show’s unforgettable end. Since its debut on the streaming service in 2016, the Duffer Brothers’ scary and ’80s-themed show has been going strong. However, the brothers revealed in a heartfelt letter that the next season will be the last for Eleven and the rest of the gang. The plan was to start shooting at the beginning of June, but the WGA strike is still going on, so filming has been delayed. This has left many fans wondering when season five of Stranger Things will come out.
When season four of Stranger Things ended, Vecna (played by Jamie Campbell Bower) had brought the Upside Down to Hawkins, making a big mess with a giant crack tearing through the town and that creepy red Upside Down vibe spreading. The group finally met up again in Hawkins, which was a good thing. The big question, though, is whether they can stop Vecna from taking over the world. As the big season five end of Stranger Things approaches, we’re here to tell you everything we know so far. We’ve got you covered on everything from possible release date to plot information, cast news, and more.
Stranger Things Season 5 Release Date
Stranger Things season 5 could come out as early as 2024. But we might still have to wait a while. Filming was supposed to start in June 2023, but it was put on hold because of the WGA strike.
At the time, the Duffer Bros sent a tweet that said, “Duffers here. When shooting starts, writing does not stop. We’re excited to start filming with our great cast and team, but we can’t because of the strike. We hope that an agreement will be made soon so that everyone can get back to work. Until then, that’s all.
We also don’t know yet how the new season will be put out. Seasons 1 through 3 were all released all at once. Season 4 came out in two parts, with volume 1 having seven episodes and volume 2 having two.

What Will Be the Plot of Stranger Things Season 5?
As the Duffer Brothers and their team continue to write and develop the storyline for Stranger Things season five, specific details about the plot stay secret. But people expect it to have some big surprises and turns. The Duffer Brothers have given hints about what’s to come and said that they know exactly how they want the series to end.
In an interview with SFX, Matt Duffer said, “We know how it’s going to end. It’s possible that it will change, but I don’t think it will because it’s the kind of finish that has always felt right. It also seems like it was bound to happen. Then when you come up with it, you’re like, “Oh yeah, well, that’s definitely what it has to be.”
Variety said that the last season will focus a lot on Will’s journey. The gang beats Vecna in the season four finale, but Will’s discovery that Vecna isn’t dead adds a surprise twist. Also, Vecna’s acts have opened four doors to the Upside Down, which has caused a huge crack and let the Upside Down flood into Hawkins.
It looks like season five will be the saddest one yet. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the people who made Stranger Things said that the first script for the show made Netflix directors cry. Matt joked, “We did make our executives cry. I thought it was a good sign that they were crying.” I’ve only seen them cry once before, at a budget meeting.
The Cast of Stranger Things Season 5
How about we start with the good news? Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike, Noah Schnapp, who plays Will, Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, Caleb McLaughlin, who plays Lucas, Priya Ferguson, who plays Erica, Joe Keery, who plays Steve, Natalia Dyer, who plays Nancy, Charlie Heaton, who plays Jonathan, and Maya Hawke, who plays Robin, are all back for Stranger Things 5.
Since Max is in a coma, Sadie Sink will also come back, but nobody knows how. We’ll have to wait and see where her story goes. And, of course, Winona Ryder and David Harbour will be back as Mom and Dad, aka Joyce and Hopper, who are now (finally!) a couple.
Brett Gelman (who played Murray) and Cara Buono (who played Karen Wheeler) should be back. Even though we don’t know where Paul Reiser’s Dr. Owens is right now, it’s possible that we could see him again. Tom Wlaschiha’s Dmitri/Enzo could also come back since he didn’t die and is probably hiding in the U.S. with Murray. (It’s not clear if Yuri, played by Nikola Uriko, will come back.)
