WARNING: Stranger Things Spoilers Follow.

Stranger Things Overview

The storyline revolves around a small rural town called Hawkins, and the timeline is set to be around the 1980s.

There is a group of kids who somehow gets into paranormal supernatural activities, and then the story begins.

Also, nearby the town, there is a National laboratory which later turns out to be the center of conducting human tests for various supernatural abilities and more. 

Amongst many such test subjects, one girl – Eleven “El,” breaks out of the laboratory and meets Will in the woods.

Will then introduces her to all his friends, who try to help her. Later, she, with her psychokinetic energy, helps her new friends to defeat a creature from an alternate dimension. 

Stranger Things Season 4 Ending

We saw that Will, Elevel Jonathan, and Joyce have shifted to California where all of them will get a fresh new start.

But Eleven doesn’t seem to be doing fine without her powers. On the other hand, Hawkins is once more under the attack of Vecna – a monster from upside down.

The portal between both worlds was opened and in between so much happened. Because Eleven is powerless, Dr. Sam Owens is helping her to regain her powers so that she can then defeat the monster creature Vecna. 

When so much is happening, it comes to light that Hopper has been kidnapped and thrown into a Russian prison.

To save him, Joyce takes Murray’s help, and both of them fly to Russia. There was another whole scene – containing fighting and more monsters from Russian experiments. It was quite the story – where we came across so many scary monstrous creatures. 

Stranger Things Season 5 Storyline

Everyone is eager to know about Max as she lies in the hospital, is badly injured, and is in a coma. Fans want her to wake up in the following season.

When Stranger Things Season 5 was renewed, the Duffer brothers said that the complete story was already planned out seven years ago and now, finally, the ending is here. 

Also, as Max is not waking-up, there is a chance that she is the one who sacrificed herself, which led to the opening of the portal.

Unfortunately, Vecna might still be alive and now the fifth season will follow Will and the team, killing the Vecna once and for all. 

Will there be Time Jump in Stranger Things Season 5?

Moreover, it is highly unlikely, but still – because this is going to be the last season, some fans are also speculating about a “time jump” in the storyline.

Mostly, Stranger Things started out as a 1980s backdrop and gradually started to move forward year after year.

So technically, the fifth season will be something nearby 1987-1988 – but who’s to say? We can’t know for sure. 

How many episodes will Stranger Things Season 5 have?

Previous seasons of Stranger Things have had fewer episodes, but we’re not sure about the final season.

The first season had 8 episodes, whereas the second and third had similar numbers, viz. 9 and eight.

Stranger Things Season 4 had 9 episodes which were released in between a gap. Now, the fifth season is also expected to have approx eight episodes. 

Stranger Things Makers Team

The world-famous Duffer Brothers created this horror mystery drama – science fiction series.

They also serve as executive producers for the show. Other producers include Dan Cohen, Matt Thunell, Karl Gajdusek, Iain Paterson, Curtis Gwinn, Cindy Holland, Brian Wright, Shawn Levy, and more.

The team of editors includes Nat Fuller, Katheryn Naranjo, Kevin D. Ross, and Dean Zimmerman. 

Stranger Things Season 4 Budget

Being one of the most popular series from the first season, Stranger Things set the bar quite higher.

For being such, the makers have come a long way and gone to great lengths to make everything possible.

And we all know, for that, a higher budget is required. The budget for Stranger Things’ fourth season was approximately $270 million. 

Stranger Things Season 5 Trailer Release

For now, there is no official trailer released by Netflix – because the shooting has not yet started.

Soon after the filming begins, we will get ourselves, a brand new teaser followed by Stranger Things Season 5 Trailer.
