Stranger Things creators Ross and Matt Duffer have revealed when work on season five will begin.
We are going to take a short holiday in July. And then we’ll be back. I know that work on the script will start in the first week of August.
It’s great to hear that Stranger Things season 5 is starting production very soon, but it’s worth noting that production on season 4 has taken several years. From pre-production to trailers in 2020 and then to the finished product, the season took about three years to complete. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait until 2024 (or beyond) to see how things unfold in Hawkins, Indiana.
A fifth season has already been confirmed to be the show’s last, though the Duffers are teasing the possibility of a spin-off, saying in a statement, “There are still many exciting stories to tell in the world of Stranger Things: new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected characters.”
We have a draft of the fifth season, we pitched it to Netflix and they responded very well to it. “I mean, it was difficult. This is the end of the story. I saw executives crying that I had never seen crying before, and it was wild.
So at least we have some time to get ready…
