When Will Season 5 Be Released?
The show’s premiere date is still a mystery bigger than what exactly Erica found under Lucas’ bed. There was a year between the first two seasons, and then we had to wait two years for season three, and another two for season four.
The makers’ Duffer Brothers cleared it earlier that there won’t be a long wait this time. But they haven’t started filming it. However, that wait is over. So, speculations are high that the show would be put on in early 2024.
A Time Jump Expected
The show’s first season was based on the year 1983. As the kids are getting older it is said that the kids will catch up to their actual ages in this season. Like, Millie Bobby Brown who plays 11 is now 18. Joe Keery playing Steve in the series is 30 now. Each season has jumped ahead a year. Now, season five would be based on the year 1987. The makers have also confirmed the time jump. Kids will be graduating in the season, Though, many details are not out yet.
Will Byres and His Love For Mike
As Noah Schnapp cleared earlier that his character Will Byres is gay and he does love Mike, who is in love with Eleven played by Millie Bobby. Ross Duffer said that Will is a big part and focus of the finale season. And everything Will does is made more difficult by the fact that he’s still apparently able to feel a connection to Vecna.

About Eddie and Max
New character Eddie Munson sacrificed himself in season four, and the Duffers have assured fans that the meaningful death is real. It’s possible actor Joseph Quinn could show up in a flashback (although Alexei didn’t get to do that), but the character won’t be an active part of the final season.
How Long Will Finale Be?
As you all know, how long the season 4 finale was. Then be prepared for season five end. In one of the interviews, Duffer says, “Season five’s finale will be too, though not quite as long”. Though, it’s official that Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2 did not surpass “Squid Game” as Netflix’s most-watched television season ever after 28 days had gone since the season’s release.
Also, the makers’ Duffer Bros. teased the fans with a letter saying, “There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things’ mysteries, adventures, and new unexpected heroes”.
