Stranger Things Season 5 Will Keep The Action (And The Characters) In Hawkins

The Duffers also point out that season 4 had the most open-ended finale of any “Stranger Things” season to date. The super-sized final episode ended with Max (Sadie Sink) in a coma, Will (Noah Schnapp) convinced Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower) is still alive, and the real Hawkins plunged into an Upside Down of its own. “For the first time ever, we don’t wrap things up at the end of 4, and so it’s going to be moving,” Matt Ross shared. He reveals that “Characters are already going to be in action” when the final season returns, and that dealing with the cliffhangers presented at the end of season 4 will “carve out at least a couple hours and make this season feel really different.”

Does that mean season 5 is set to tighten up some of the slack that came with managing the latest season’s sprawling cast? Well, it could, but the Duffers admit they plan on taking their time with the conclusion. “I’m sure the wrap-up will be a lot longer,” Matt Ross says. “It’s going to be ‘Return of the King’-ish with, like, eight endings.”

Season 4 of “Stranger Things” is now on Netflix.
