‘Stranger Things’ Announces 2024 Premiere For Season 5, The Series Finale

Stanger things 5

The last two episodes of Stranger Things Season 4 just dropped this past weekend, and some fans are calling it the best season yet. I’m pretty partial to Season 1, but with 13 hours of TV in nine episodes, Season 4 is pretty epic.

However, the second half of this season won’t be the end of the story, as Matt and Ross Duffer, the creators of the show, have officially announced a Season 5 for 2024. It will be the final season fo the popular Netflix series.

With that being said, they admitted that the episodes won’t be as long as the 75 minute ones we’ve seen in the past.

The duo discussed on the Happy Sad Confused podcast:

“The only reason we don’t expect to be as long is, this season, if you look at it, it’s almost a two-hour ramp up before our kids really get drawn into a supernatural mystery.

You get to know them, you get to see them in their lives, they’re struggling with adapting to high school and so forth, Steve’s trying to find a date, all of that. None of that is obviously going to be occurring (in season 5).

For the first time ever, we don’t wrap things up at the end of 4, so it’s going to be moving. I don’t know that it’s going to be going 100 miles an hour at the start of 5, but it’s going to be moving pretty fast.

Characters are already going to be in action. They’re already going to have a goal and a drive, and I think that’s going to carve out at least a couple hours and make this season feel really different.”

However, this could all be subject to change, as Matt admitted to Collider that he probably would’ve had a different idea had he been interviewed before season four:

“We thought Season 4 was going to be eight (episodes), and they were going to be regular length. So if you had interviewed us before 4, that’s what I would’ve said.”

And if you haven’t seen Season 4 yet, here’s the trailer:
