Stranger Things fans are celebrating a momentous day since the program has returned with its fourth season after nearly three years of waiting. (The first seven episodes are now available to watch online, with two more to be released on July 1.)
While fans are eagerly anticipating the new episodes, one important issue remains: when will season 5 be released?
The hit science fiction series’ creators, the Duffer Brothers, announced in February that the next fifth season will be the series’ final season.
Despite the fact that filming on the newest season was delayed due to the coronavirus epidemic, the brothers claimed in a new interview with Variety that the gap between the fourth and fifth seasons will be substantially less.

Stranger Things Season 5 Is It Renewed?
Stranger Things Season 5 has been renewed for a fifth season in 2023.
Stranger Things Season 5 Release Date
Netflix has set the release date for Stranger Things Season 5 for 2023. Stranger Things Season 4, Part 1 premiered early Friday morning, and the Duffer Brothers are already whetting our appetites for the fifth and final season of their popular Netflix series. According to our sister site Variety, the Part 2 finale (which airs on Friday, July 1) will “dovetail directly” into the show’s final season.
“We outlined Season 5 and offered it to Netflix during the six-month epidemic pause,” they continued. “Everyone who was there was also there when we first pitched the show in 2015.” We had been strangers before, but suddenly we were friends, and there were many tears when it was ended.”
For better or worse, that conclusion will arrive sooner rather than later. “Don’t hold us to it,” they stated, “but the gap [between Seasons 4 and 5] should be much less this time due to the fact that we already have an initial framework and we can’t think there will be another six-month forced sabbatical.”
And the reason Season 4 is so jam-packed with new locations, new characters, and the biggest threat yet is because these episodes set up the show’s final act!

Stranger Things Season 5 Expected Cast
Again, we’ll have to wait and see who survives Season 4 before we can speculate about which cast members and characters will return for the final season.
Is there one character we can almost certainly expect to see in the final season? Byers, Joyce. Finn Wolfhard shared the text Winona Ryder sent him in an interview with MTV UK, wherein she joked regarding “her energy for season 5”.
Stranger Things Season 5 Expected Plot
Because the final two episodes of Stranger Things 4 have yet to be aired, there’s no way to tell for sure.
Vecna’s background, origins, and link to Eleven have all been revealed to viewers. It’s unclear whether his tale will continue in Season 5, but the threat of the Upside Down will definitely hang over Hawkins as the season progresses.
