We’ll be keeping an eye on everything you need to know about the fifth and final of Stranger Things season 5, which is set to air on Netflix.
The fifth and final season of Stranger Things is coming to Netflix, and it will likely air in 2024. The fifth and final season of Stranger Things on Netflix will be covered in detail in the following Stranger Things season 5 preview.
Stranger Things has been and still is one of Netflix’s flagship series since its debut in July 2016.
If some customers thought the three-year wait was too long, the statistics completely disagree with them. A Nielsen streaming record was broken during the first week of Volume 1’s release of Season 4 on Netflix, with 7.2 billion minutes of the show being watched between May 30 and June 5, 2022. When Volume 2 of the series was released, there was such a huge demand for it that some Netflix subscribers briefly suffered crashes as viewers rushed to watch the thrilling ending of Season 4.
Netflix renewal status for season 5 of Stranger Things
Official Renewal of Netflix Status: Renewal (Updated: February 7th, 2022)
Ahead of the fourth season’s release, we learned that Netflix had already renewed Stranger Things for a fifth and final season.
Prior to the production of Season 4, the Duffer Brothers were unsure of the number of seasons needed to tell the complete story of Stranger Things.
In advance, Ross Duffer commented on the show’s duration as follows:
“We’re not really sure. I believe we’ll probably end up with seasons four to five, but who knows? We know where we want to go, but none of that is official yet. We’ll see. We are currently trying to determine how long it will take to get there.
The fact that the show would end after the fifth season was known to Matt in advance:
It’s challenging because five seems long and four seems short. I am at a loss for what to do.
What to expect from Stranger Things season 5
Hawkins, welcome to hell.
Vecna, or Henry, aka 001, despite his best efforts, managed to open a massive gate separating the Upside Down from the outside world. Residents are fleeing in large numbers to avoid any further damage after dozens of people lost their lives in the subsequent commotion.
The particles falling around Hawkins would hasten the death of all plant life as a result of the huge smoke plumes coming out of the huge gates. Hawkins’ presence in the normal world will soon resemble Hawkins in the Upside Down as the design for Vecna’s “beautiful” new universe begins to take shape.
Expect to see a large military force besieging Hawkins as the city descends into an increasingly chaotic state, with only a handful of civilians and our heroes remaining to fight Vecna.
Return of Vecna / 001 vs. 011
Nancy, Steve, and Robin nearly kill Vecna, but he manages to escape before anyone can deliver the fatal blow. How badly he is hurt and how long it will take him to recover from the multiple shotgun blasts and Molotov cocktails are unknown. When Vecna is fully restored, we expect her to attack Hawkins with her true might and let loose the legions of demons from the Upside Down.
Only Eleven, who barely made it through their second encounter, is able to face Vecna. There’s no doubt that Eleven has tremendous powers, but we’ve probably only begun to scratch the surface of what she’s truly capable of. Eleven must develop her abilities if she is to face Vekna.
To put Hawkins under quarantine?
The military may impose martial law and possibly quarantine Hawkins because the gate is a threat to both Hawkins and the rest of the world. A significant military presence can be expected, especially if Demogorgons and other demons begin emerging through the gates.
Sadly, the residents of Hawkins may be left to fend for themselves while the military battles the forces of the Upside Down if they can’t leave town before the quarantine begins.
Gates: What will happen to them?
Even if Eleven destroys Vecna, it is not certain that the entrance to the Upside Down will be closed. Eleven may have to force it to shut itself down as she did with the gate to Hawkins Lab in the second season. Even though the starting gate was substantial, it was nothing compared to what Vecna did with Hawkins. Eleven might have to give up her life to close the gates, thus it would not only take away all of her power.
Will Max ever wake up?
Vecna’s objective was realized as a result of Max’s death, but surprisingly Eleven was able to revive Max. No wonder Max is in a coma – in the midst of dying, his limbs broken, and possibly blind. Max will definitely wake up, but it’s unclear what shape she’ll be in when she does.
