Finn Wolfhard makes it clear Stranger Things Season 6 isn’t really on the table. A show that takes place in the 80s and follows the adventures of the Hellfire Club, a group of friends who often gamble Dungeons & Dragons together, Stranger Things explores the supernatural “Upside Down” and the human experiments that mysteriously created super-powered humans. While Stranger Things has become a huge hit for Netflix, it will soon come to an end with a season 5 finale.
Although it had a brilliant run, even James Cameron has criticized Stranger Things‘ timeline as the kids age out of the show with each passing year, and that was among many qualities that made future seasons feel completely impossible. In an interview with Uproxxstar Wolfhard, who plays Mike, made it clear that it will continue Stranger Things into season 6 and beyond would have been too much. See Wolfhard’s quote below:
“Not ready, but I’m just really excited to start working on it because after I finished watching season four, I was just like, ‘Damn, let’s just go back and film now.'” I want just help finish it but not in a way where I want to be done with it. It’s like I want to know what’s going on. I’m definitely sad but I also know it’s the next kind of chapter in everyone’s life that must happen.
Also, for me, if Stranger Things lasted longer than five, I’d say it would be ridiculous. I think the Duffer brothers figured out, I would imagine, a perfect ending of five. We didn’t even know if we were going to make two. So we’re glad people are still around and want to see it. But yeah, I’m excited. Four was huge in scale, but I think I’d like to see the fifth season pull back on more of the dynamics of season one, and kind of be a little more contained, but also still be gigantic. I’m hoping that we kind of get an ending for each character that’s pretty satisfying for fans.”
How Stranger Things will continue last season 5
Even though the main show ends, it doesn’t mean that Stranger Things’the story will be completely over. Although it is easy to argue that Stranger Things don’t need spin-offs, as the Hellfire club lays down their dice, new spin-off shows will pick up where they left off. Aside from the news that a spin-off will be an anime set in Tokyo, Netflix has been remarkably quiet about what the shows could be about. The speculations generally range from upside-down adventures and experiments in Hawkins’ laboratory to even the adventures of the Student as an adult. Regardless, Stranger Things will continue, to the great benefit of Netflix.
Everything we know about Stranger Things season 5
Stranger Things season 5 is not expected to be quite as long as season 4, which featured 13 hours of content and a significant amount of filler. Season 5, while serving as the conclusion of the overall show, will likely run for 10 hours, which should be more than enough to tie up potential loose ends as it brings together the original Hawkins gang. After Eleven and Hopper finally reunited in Season 4, it will be a rewarding experience to see them spend time together again after everything they Stranger Things heroes have been throughout the show.
The season will also feature a major time jump to explain why the actors have aged so much since they were last seen on screen. Seen in Hawkins, Stranger Things season 5 will explore up and down and eventually explain everything the characters need to know about its dark and horrifying reality. With the heroes set to face off in a final battle against Vecna, they will have the opportunity to end the story alongside all of the surviving original Hellfire Club members. Unfortunately, the season risks bringing back Strange things‘ worst villain problem of having too many villains (including Vecna and Colonel Jack Sullivan) as it ties up everything the show has left over. But it plans to end, Stranger Things season 5 is expected to appear on Netflix in late 2024.
