Stranger Things season 5: Release date, spoilers, cast, news and trailers

In this article, we’ll explore everything we know about Stranger Things season 5 so far, including release dates, spoilers, and cast information.
Will there be a Stranger Things season 5?
Yes! After previously announcing season 4 would not be the end of the series, creators Matt and Ross Duffer have confirmed that Stranger Things season 5 will be the final season of the popular Netflix show. In a statement, they said: “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 towards our finale. Season four will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last.”
When does Stranger Things season 5 come out?
As of now, there is no release date for Stranger Things season 5. Filming was scheduled to begin in May or June of 2023, but is currently suspended in solidarity with the writers’ strike. When filming starts in mid-2023, a late-2024 release date could be possible.
