Stranger Things’ fourth season has set the series back on its perch as one of the best shows available on streaming right now. But as all good things must come to an end, it is clear that Stranger Things as we know it is ending sooner rather than later. It won’t be the end of the franchise though so the question is really what the future might look like for the series. Thankfully, showrunners, the Duffer Brothers, have given us some insight.
Season 5 To Explore 'Upside Down' Further
For starters, there is definitely a Season 5 coming, we just don’t know when it will air. In an interview with TV Line, Matt Duffer said, “I’m not sure we’re ready to say yet a start date for shooting [season 5] but a lot of it is pretty well mapped out.”
According to David Harbour, who plays Police Chief Hopper, filming should start in 2023.
Season 5 will feature a time jump that was initially something they wanted to avoid but thanks to the pandemic, it’s impossible not to. As Ross Duffer said, “I’m sure we will do a time jump. Ideally, we’d have shot [Season 4 and 5] back-to-back, but there was just no feasible way to do that.”
Season 5 will explore the origins of the Upside Down, the physics of it, and the hierarchy of the monsters who inhabit it. Basically, most if not all our questions about the Upside Down will be answered in the new season.
Episodes will be longer but there will be fewer than Season 4. Matt Duffer told the Happy Sad Podcast,
Fingers crossed for anything resembling Return of the King.
Whilst season 5 will be the end of Stranger Things, it won’t be the end of the franchise. As the Duffers wrote in an open letter,
"More Exciting Stories"
There is a strong possibility of a Stranger Things spinoff that won’t continue the story with the original characters. Whether it even takes place in Hawkins is in doubt. What we do know is that the Duffer Brothers will be involved and that Finn Wolfhard is the only other person who knows what it’s about.
As the Duffer Brothers told Variety,
Other than that though, we don’t know anything about the spinoff so maybe it’s time for the theorists to get to work.
