Stranger Things was officially the most popular Netflix show in 2022. Stranger Things season 4 was released in two parts over the summer of 2022, and fans have been waiting for the latest news on the fifth season from the Stranger Things team since then.
We have some bad news about Stranger Things season 5 to share. Stranger Things season 4 was postponed due to the COVID-19 epidemic, and it appears that season 5 will be delayed as well. The Duffer Brothers announced on May 6 that production on Stranger Things Season 5 will not begin until the WGA strike is resolved.
We also heard that Joseph Quinn’s comeback as Eddie Munson is “unlikely” for the new season. Quinn told an audience at an Abu Dhabi convention that he believes he would be “unlikely” to return.
In an interview with Matt and Ross Duffers before the release of Stranger Things season 4, volume 2, they teased several plot developments for season 5. They do not know whether season 5 will be divided into two halves, as season 4 was, but they are aware of a few major plots that will be covered.
Stranger Things season 5’s plot will most likely focus around the massive hole that was formed in the centre of Hawkins, which is undoubtedly connected to the Upside Down. The Duffers have previously stated that this will be a major focus for the season.
Stranger Things season 5 was set to begin filming in May or June 2023, as previously said. Production might begin as early as May, according to reports, but Netflix has yet to confirm this. The Duffers acknowledged on Twitter that the series will not begin filming until the strike ends. Hopefully, the networks and studios will extend an offer to the writers shortly.
