While the fourth season was officially renewed in 2019, the fifth season was always considered in limbo as the show creators Duffer brothers told that they want to end the show. However, Netflix interfered due to the huge popularity of the show and there are reports that the upcoming season will be split into two parts meaning Stranger Things Season 5 release will happen for sure.
Stranger Thing Season 5 Release Date Status Confirmed by Netflix
Stranger Things Season 4 was rumored to be the last and final season of the show but Netflix wanted more seasons. Hence, it has been reported that the fourth season will split the episodes into two halves and the second half will be officially called Stranger Things season 5.
While it is not confirmed whether the storyline will have a separate arc or continue the same events, season 5 of the show will happen for sure. There is no way Netflix will end its most popular franchise so soon and will carry forward for several years with Stranger Things Season 5 and rumored prequel spin-offs for the same.
Stranger Thing Season 4 Plot Theories and Speculations
Stranger Things Season 4 will take the story out of Hawkins and it will be revealed that more labs are conducting illegal experiments and kids other than Eleven having superpowers. Many theories are predicting that Jim Hopper is still alive and is captured by the Russians.
The most popular Stranger Things season 4 plot theories claim that Hopper is ‘The American’ prisoner held by the Russian Scientists and Eleven will rescue with the help of other powered kids. Stranger Things Season 4 release date is yet not announced as the show is filming right now and it should premiere somewhere around the end of 2020 or early 2021 on Netflix.
