The Duffer Brothers, the creators of the hit Netflix television series Stranger Things, have teased some details about Season 5. While we don’t know if the season will be split into two parts or have a standalone plot, they have teased some major plot points and revealed that Max and Vecna will likely survive.
Duffer Brothers already have most of season 5 outlined
According to an interview with Variety, the Duffer Brothers have already outlined the majority of season five. While the showrunners haven’t set a date for shooting, they expect to make a few adjustments before it starts. One of the biggest changes is likely to be a time jump.
While the writers haven’t revealed any specifics yet, they’ve hinted that the upcoming fifth season will follow the blueprint of George Lucas’s The Empire Strikes Back, which was the source of Season 4. The Duffers also revealed that the fifth season will have fewer episodes, but fans should expect a supersized finale.
Season 5 will be split into two parts
Netflix has announced that the upcoming season of Stranger Things will be split into two volumes, instead of one long one. This means that there will be seven episodes premiere on May 27 and another seven on July 1, respectively. This news isn’t particularly surprising, considering how well the show has been received. Netflix also confirmed that there are spinoff projects in the works.
The cast of the show has been coy about the next season, other than teasing fans with a teaser. Millie, who plays Eleven, has been keeping fans in suspense by hinting that the new season will focus on a different storyline. In season four, Jim Hopper gave up his life to save Joyce, Eleven, and the entire town of Hawkins, but in the end, he was zapped into the unknown.
Max will likely survive
The upcoming season of Stranger Things will have an important role for Max. The character was brought back for a reason. While fans are concerned for his life in season five, they hope that Max bounces back to see Vecna fall. The recurring character has proven to be a popular character.
The Duffers haven’t mentioned to Sink whether Max will survive the upcoming season. This is because they’ve been keeping their Season 5 storyline a secret. However, Sink has said that the Season 4 finale had said that Max would die. The upcoming season will most likely address that cliffhanger, but they haven’t decided whether or not to kill Max off completely.
Vecna will return
In the upcoming season of Stranger Things, fans can expect to see a return of Vecna, the demon that opened the massive gate into the Upside Down in Hawkins. According to David Harbour Bower, Vecna will return to the show in season five. Bower revealed this during an appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. He explained that his character would be back in the series and that he hopes to get more scenes with Will Byers and his character. After all, the two characters have unfinished business.
Season four of Stranger Things was one of the most popular shows of the year, with a phenomenal first week and a two-hour finale. It introduced a new villain, Vecna, and made a big return with a super-sized episode that took two hours and 20 minutes to play out. The season four finale was a climactic reveal that spelled out the impending doom for the town of Hawkins.
Sadie Sink isn’t sure if she’ll be back
Sadie Sink has opened up about the upcoming season of “Stranger Things.” The actress has said she’s not sure if she’ll be back as Max in the new season. Though, the actor did share her thoughts on whether Max will wake up from his coma. If she does return, she will likely be reunited with Lucas.
Sink was born in Brenham, Texas. When she was young, she first got a role on “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.” From there, she began performing regularly in Theatre Under the Stars productions in Houston. After that, she focused on getting into films and landed a role on “Blue Bloods.” She also appeared in NBC’s action thriller “American Odyssey.”
Fans are excited for season 5
Season 5 of Stranger Things is coming, and fans are excited to see what’s in store. It’s not too soon to start thinking about what fans will be seeing in the new season, which will be the series’ final season. There have been a number of theories surrounding the series’ finale, including the possible return of Eddie. Fans are also wondering whether or not the Duffer brothers will give us more information about the origins of the Upside Down.
Season 4 of the hit Netflix series introduced some new locations. For instance, we met Jim Hopper while he was a prisoner in Russia. The show also introduced the characters Joyce and Will in Lenora Hills, California. Season 5 will bring together the main characters again, but the majority of the episode will take place in Hawkins, Indiana.
