Everything We Know About ‘Stranger Things’ Season 5

Everything We Know About 'Stranger Things' Season 5

Netflix’s Stranger Things is undoubtedly a pop-culture phenomenon and one of the most popular series that the streaming service has released. Ever. A dash of 80s nostalgia combined with a great cast and superb writing, mixing fantasy, horror, sci-fi, and drama, Stranger Things is a series that will definitely go down in history due to the cultural impact it had, but also because it cemented Netflix as one of the major players in the industry. Nine years after the premiere, the series will officially end next year with its fifth season, bringing the story that the Duffer Brothers conceived to an end. In preparation for that, we are going to tell you all that you need to know ahead of the season’s premiere.

In this report, as you might have guessed, we are going to bring you all that we know about the upcoming fifth season of Stranger Things in one place. You are going to find out all that we know about the series’ release date, episode count, plot, trailer, and cast, ahead of the upcoming premiere. This will be your go-to guide for all the info in one place, as the article is going to be updated regularly as more information is released.

Stranger Things Season 5 release date

The fifth season of Stranger Things is going to be the final season of a series that has consistently been earning praise from critics and fans. The series has been in production since January, and the fifth season will air on Netflix probably sometime during 2025, as a precise release date has not been set as of the time of writing.

How many episodes will Stranger Things Season 5 have?

The episode count is always an important piece of information for fans, which is why everyone is eager to know how many episodes an upcoming season is going to have. As far as Stranger Things Season 5 is concerned, we can confirm that it will consist of eight episodes in total, as has been confirmed by Netflix.

Stranger Things Season 5 trailer

Netflix is notoriously secretive about its projects until a proper marketing campaign is launched, and since that is not the case with Stranger Things Season 5, we don’t have an official trailer for the series as of the time of writing. The only thing we have are several photos from the filming of the series, which is currently on the way, but we are going to update this article as soon as a trailer is released.

Stranger Things Season 5 plot

The exact premise of the fifth season of Stranger Things is not known, and Netflix hasn’t released any proper information about the story of season five, although we do know the general idea. The only thing we have are comments made by the series’ creators, who have revealed the following:

Matt: “We were like, ‘We know what’s going on in the Upside Down, more or less, but we want it to be unknowable. We want it to be mysterious. But they were like, ‘Yeah, but can you write it down?’ And so we wrote it all down.”

Ross: “The last remaining questions that are answered in that document, we’ve punted a couple of those to have some big reveals in Season 5. And that’s really going to affect what Season 5 is about.”

Stranger Things Season 5 cast

Due to the fact that the fifth season of Stranger Things is still in the early phases of production, cast information is severely limited, but we do know some names. Since Stranger Things is an interconnected series, i.e., the seasons are not standalone, we expect to see many familiar faces alongside new ones who are going to appear in the season. As of the time of writing, these names have been confirmed for the fifth season of the series, but we’re also going to include some suspected and assumed members of the cast:

  • Season 5 returning cast: Noah Schnapp, Millie Bobby Brown, David Harbour, Winona Ryder, Cara Buono, Joe Keery, Amybeth McNulty, Charlie Heaton, Brett Gelman, Maya Hawke, Natalia Dyer, Jamie Campbell Bower, Priah Ferguson, Linda Hamilton, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Finn Wolfhard, and Sadie Sink
  • Season 5 new cast: Linda Hamilton (undisclosed role)

Where to watch Stranger Things Season 5?

As was the case for all the previous seasons, the fifth season of Stranger Things will be available on Netflix, which has the exclusive distribution rights for the series. This is also the only place where you can watch the previous seasons as well.
