Netflix Renews 'Stranger Things' for A Fifth and Final Season
LOS ANGELES – Netflix has renewed that “Stranger Things,” the sci-fi horror series that premiered in 2016, for a fifth and final season.
Series creators Matt and Ross Duffer announced the news in a letter to fans that said “Stranger Things 4” would be split into two parts, with the first to debut May 27 and the second to launch July 1, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer also wrote that the show will wrap up with “Stranger Things 5.”
“Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for ‘Stranger Things,'” the two showrunners wrote in the letter published on the Netflix blog. “At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It proved too large to tell in four, but — as you’ll soon see for yourselves — we are now hurtling toward our finale. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last.”
The fourth season of “Stranger Things” will premiere after a long delay that saw show’s third season releasing more than two-and-half-years ago. The final season comes as the show’s young cast is reaching their 20s when they originally appeared on the show in their early teens.
