Is Stranger Things Season 5 happening? Read on to find out.
Stranger Things has launched the first volume of the fourth season and with only two more episodes left, fans are wondering about the fifth and final season of the series. The latest episode of Stranger Things has tilted our world upside down (quite literally) and we can’t wait to see what the makers have to store for the final season.
You might be living under a rock if you haven’t heard about this masterpiece but for the unversed, Stranger Things is a science fiction horror drama series that focuses on a group of friends in the town of Hawkins, Indiana. A laboratory in the town seemingly performs some research for the United States Department of Energy, but secretly they do experiment with the paranormal stuff, including those where they use humans as subjects. They have created a portal to an alternate dimension and now, the residents of the town are getting influenced by the effects.
The latest season of the series, which is season 4, premiered on May 27, 2022, and unsurprisingly, the audience is totally loving the first part. They have already started searching for the fifth season and if you’re also a Stranger Things fan, check out this article for the information on Stranger Things Season 5.
Here’s everything you need to know about Stranger Things Season 5.
Will there be a fifth season of Stranger Things?
Yes! Creators, The Duffer Brothers have confirmed that there will be a fifth season of the series, they announced it in an open letter to fans published via Netflix in February. But the news is bittersweet as the fifth season will mark the end of Stranger Things.
They wrote, “Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for Stranger Things. At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It proved too large to tell in four, but – as you’ll soon see for yourselves – we are now hurtling toward our finale. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last.”
Also, Netflix has also teased the fans about the fifth season with an upside-down sign reading, “Every ending has a beginning.”

Is there a release date for the fifth season yet?
There is still volume 2 of the fourth season to come, so we have to wait a while for the upcoming season. The production has not started yet and if we look into the schedule of the fourth season, the filming wrapped around September 2021 and released in late May 2022. So, it depends on the production when the fifth season will arrive. We expect it to arrive sometime in late 2023.
Stranger Things Season 5 Plot
As volume 2 of the fourth season is yet to be released, we’ll have to wait to understand what might happen in the fifth season. In an announcement of Season 5, the creators said, “There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things; new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes. But first, we hope that you stay with us as we finish this tale of a powerful girl named Eleven and her brave friends, of a broken police chief and a ferocious mom, of a small town called Hawkins, and an alternate dimension known only as of the Upside Down.”
Mark Duffer said, “It’s conceivable that it changes but I think it’s unlikely because it’s one of those endings that just feels, and has always felt, right. And it also feels sort of inevitable. Then when you come up with it, you’re like, ‘oh yeah well, that is absolutely what it has to be.”
