Season five of Stranger Things will continue with the Party. The Netflix drama will return to its hometown for its next installment, despite featuring several vastly different locations in season four. As Shawn Levy told E! News, Stranger Things’ final season will “definitely focus more on Hawkins.” As shown, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Will (Noah Schnapp), Hopper (David Harbour), and Joyce (Winona Ryder) reunite with their Hawkins-based loved ones at the end of the Season Four finale, and the news is reassuring.
He teased that Stranger Things 5 would not be smaller but remained tight-lipped on the specific date. In Season Five, he said, “my expectations for the show remain very high, and I don’t think we’ll change that approach based on how the audience and the show have grown.” It looks like we will get a lot more Hawkins in all kinds of ways with the extra-large Season Four, which includes two feature-length episodes.
It is still unclear what will become of Max, but Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer have revealed that Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine) is dead this time around for real. They describe him as “toast.” In a discussion with E! News, Joseph Quinn said he’d be very up for being recast in the show in the future.
He added, “But let’s see what happens.” The brothers say they won’t give up on Max (Sadie Sink). “She’s brain dead, but she’s alive,” they said, noting that she is blind and has broken bones.

The case of Max remains unclear whether she will ever recover from her coma, although she is technically still alive. In an interview with Deadline, Sadie said, “I’m not sure what’s coming in five and what it will look like.” There’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding Max’s storyline since Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) can’t find her in the void, so who knows where and what condition she is in.”
There is confusion among Natalia Dyer regarding whom Nancy belongs to at the end. Despite her conviction that Nancy and Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) are a good match, she also recognizes that Steve (Joe Keery) has grown up and thinks Nancy shouldn’t be with either of them. In her interview with Variety, she stated, “It is difficult. Maybe she needs some time to realize herself after a long-term relationship.”
Will (Noah Schnapp) confirmed the connections between Will (Noah Schnapp) and Vecna (Vecna) in the season finale. According to Jamie Campbell Bower, fans will see Vecna interact with Will in season five, “We all know by now that Vecna and Will have a history.
That is why I am skimming forward to getting back into it.” Throughout the interview, Jamie maintained his secrecy but assured us that Matt and Ross had thought it through. “My lips are sealed,” he said.
Although Joyce, Will, Jonathan, and Eleven (Winona Ryder) want to start their new life in California, it seems they miss Hawkins and their hometown friends. The Byers leave their California home in season five, heading back to Indiana with Hopper and Eleven.
Matt Duffer told Collider they are planning mainly Hawkin’s scenes in season five; however, there will be plenty of Upside-Down storylines. “This is all about everyone coming back together; we are finally going home,” he said.
There is no way of knowing when filming for season five, the final installment, will begin, but the Duffer Brothers are mostly prepared. The last season took two years, so it’s hard to say how long season five will take.
“I don’t think the Duffers will rush the fifth season because they want to make the best final season.” While they aren’t rushing the process, upcoming episodes seem slightly shortened. The Duffer Brothers expect the finale to be a feature-length episode, though.
