Stranger Things season 5 release announcement: Everything we know about it

Hold onto your Eggos, folks, because an announcement about Stranger Things Season 5—the series’ grand finale—is just around the corner.

The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes may have put a temporary pause on our return to Hawkins, but the good news is that production kicked off earlier this year. Filming is slated to run through the entire year, wrapping up just in time for the holidays in December.

Despite the feverish excitement surrounding the final season of Netflix’s colossal hit, fans will need to practice patience, as those eagerly awaited new episodes aren’t expected to land until 2025.

But don’t despair! Netflix and the creators involved in the Duffer Brothers’ beloved project are sure to drop plenty of tantalizing teasers to keep the anticipation buzzing. So, stay tuned and keep the upside-down theories coming as we countdown to the epic conclusion!


Strangers Things Season 5 Announcement Confirmed


While promoting Deadpool & Wolverine, director Shawn Levy dropped some tantalizing hints about Stranger Things Season 5 in a chat with Deadline. When asked about the release date for the final season, Levy gave a cryptic yet promising tease:

Interviewer: “When are we going to see Season 5 [of Stranger Things]?”

Levy: “I think that by the time people watch this [interview], a little bit of an answer will be out there. So I’m going to let people higher up than me blow it. I’ve spoiled enough things.”

Levy’s enigmatic response hints that an announcement about the release window is imminent, giving fans something concrete to look forward to. Though the season is only just over halfway through production, Netflix seems confident enough in their schedule to tease this reveal.

While it might be too soon for an exact release date, fans can expect a general timeframe to be announced shortly. This should whet appetites and pave the way for more exciting updates in the coming weeks.

For instance, Netflix still hasn’t officially addressed the recasting of Holly Wheeler, now played by Nell Fisher, though eagle-eyed fans spotted this change through leaked set photos. A fun way to further stoke the hype could be to drop a video teaser with snippets of new footage, potentially confirming Vecna’s return with a chilling clip.

As it stands, Stranger Things Season 5 is slated to hit Netflix sometime in Fall 2025. Until then, stay tuned for those juicy updates and teasers!
