Ever since Stranger Things premiered on Netflix in July 2016, it has remained one of Netflix’s flagship shows, ascending the success and popularity ladder with each season. The three-year-long wait for season four has proven to be even more fruitful for the show since its volume one has broken the Neilsen streaming record as 7.2 billion minutes of the series were streamed between May 30th and June 5th, 2022.
Not only that but What’s on Netflix also mentions, “The demand for the show was so high on the release of volume 2 that some Netflix users briefly experienced crashes as subscribers raced to consume the epic conclusion of season 4.”
Has Stranger Things officially been renewed for Season 5?
Before the fourth season of Stranger Things could even release, Netflix had already renewed the show for a fifth and sadly, the final season. Unsure of the number of seasons that the show’s future abounds, Ross Duffer said:
“We don’t actually know. I think, you know, four to five seasons is likely where we’ll end up, but who knows? I mean, none of this is official, and we know where we want to go. We’re trying to figure out still how long it’ll take to get there, so we’ll see.”
On the other hand, Matt reportedly knew what the fate of the series will be. He said: “It’s hard like four seems short, five seems long. So I don’t know what to do.”
Has the production of Stranger Things Season 5 begun?
According to a tweet from the Stranger Things writers’ account, the fifth season began its writing process on August 2, 2022. Not only that, but on November 7, 2022 which was touted as Stranger Things Day 2022, the season 5 episode 1 chapter name was revealed: “Chapter One: The Crawl.”

What is the release date of Stranger Things Season 5?
Since Stranger Things season 5 is currently in the writing process, it will be a long time before we can watch it on our screens. Not only that, but the production cost of each season is extremely extensive. Taking into consideration that Stranger Things season 4 took a year for production and approximately eight months for post-production before volume one was released, Season 5 is expected to release sometime in late 2023. Be that as it may, the final season can also be delayed until 2024.
Netflix hasn’t released any official information regarding season 5 being split in half. Of course, season 4 of Stranger Things did follow the format, but we don’t have any information regarding season 5 to also follow suit.
