Stranger things’ first 3 seasons were very successful, and consequently, the show amassed a very enthusiastic fandom. Season 4 of the show is yet to be released, but fans have already started demanding the Stranger Things Season 5.
But will there be a Stranger Things Season 5?
If you have similar questions, then continue reading the article because after doing deep research, we have concluded the following things regarding the 5th season.
So, without any further delay, let’s reveal the secret!
Is the Stranger Things Season 5 confirmed?
The Duffer brothers once in an interview said that the franchise would contain no more than 4 to 5 seasons. It didn’t seem like a problem at that time, but now, as the 4th season is all set to release, fans have been very perplexed about the 5th season.
The possibilities for a 5th season heavily depend on the story development in the 4th installment. As the 4th season is not out yet, we cannot assure you whether there will be one more season or not.
Other factors like rating and viewership also matter, but as the fandom is very active so if a 5th season drops, it won’t do any less than the other preceding seasons in terms of rating.
But the major plot twist is that David Harbour (who plays Jim Hopper) dropped a big hint regarding the 5th season. He gave promising statements in an interview. But due to some reasons, he couldn’t say more on the topic.
When is Stranger Things’s 5th season getting released?
We don’t have any leads on the 4th season’s release date up till now, naturally. There is no release date for the 5th installment either.
But every Stranger Things season has taken one or one and a half years, so if the 5th installment is to come then, it won’t be released any time sooner than 2024 or even 2025.
That is a very long wait, but hopefully, it will be worth it.
Will there be any major changes in the cast for Stranger Things Season 5?
Since the past 3 seasons, there has been a trend of adding new cast members every season. So if the 5th season follows, we will get to see more new faces in the supernatural franchise.
But one thing is for sure that the main cast will not be changed entirely. Because if they do so, then the rating will drop, and Netflix doesn’t want that. This means that season 5 will feature Sadie Sink, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Maya Hawke, Joe Keery, etc.
But if there are any deaths in 4th season, then don’t expect them to return. Moreover, the casting depends mainly on the story development. Suppose the writers decided to explore Hawkins in a different timeline. Then the cast will change entirely, but there might be some flashback scenes. However, these are just assumptions, so it is better not to expect anything and let Netflix do its work.
What will be the plot?
This is a challenging question to answer because the show’s script is kept confidential, and even the actors are not given access to it until some time.
So in cases like this one, there are no leaks at all. Consequently, we cannot predict the 5th season’s story. However, we can always analyze fan theories and decode writers’ interviews.
Season 5 will most likely pick things up from where they end in season 4, and for that, we will have to wait for season 4’s release. So that is another problem.
Some fan theories suggest that season 5 will not focus on the gang anymore. It will explore other things, most probably the Lab, which is the reason behind all the chaos in Hawkins. It will get to the origin of the problem, giving fans a proper ending for their favorite universe.
Is there any trailer?
Sorry to disappoint, but once again, our answer is, No!
There is no official trailer for the 4th season either. Only 2 teasers are out yet. If the Duffer brothers go on with the story and decide to renew the show for a 5th installment, we will get to see the trailer 3 to 4 months before the show’s official release. And that won’t be happening any time soon. You’ll have to wait till 2024 or even 2025.
That is all that you needed to know about the 5th season of Stranger things. If you found this article informative, we are sure that you’ll love reading another article about Stranger Things’ fourth season’s details and fan theories.
