Stranger Things Season 4 is pretty close to being released on Netflix, and it’s just been revealed that Season 5 will be the show’s final season.
This was revealed by The Duffer Brothers in an open letter they wrote in which they spoke about the process of making Stranger Things Season 4.
Here’s what they had to say about Stranger Things Season 5 being the final season (via ComicBook.com):
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.
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 broke police chief and a ferocious mom, of a small town called Hawkins and an alternate dimension known only as the Upside Down. As always, we are grateful for your patience and support. Over and out, Matt and Ross.
Stranger Things Season 5 is going to be the show’s final season
So, what does this mean?
Well, it means that the Duffer Brothers had a story in mind that wouldn’t be able to be contained to just four seasons.
They needed a fifth season, which is good news because it means we’re going to get another season of Stranger Things.
However, it also means that there’s just going to be one more season of the hit Netflix show.
That said, it’s good to hear that the creators will get to tell the story they always wanted to tell.
