According to the Duffer brothers, season five of “Stranger Things” probably won’t last as long as season four. The show’s final season wouldn’t need to “ramp up” as much as season four, according to the cocreators.
Keep ’em Wanting More
With the exception of what will probably be a lengthy series finale, the Duffer brothers claimed that season five of “Stranger Things” won’t have any episodes that are as long as those in season four. Either way, a good finale is enough for fans to keep wanting more.
Wanting More and Waiting
The conclusion of season four, as Matt said on a podcast, isn’t set in stone, so it won’t necessarily lead into the show’s final season. This is where the time of producing and filming the next season would come in.
Despite their assurances, the brothers claimed that the season five finale, which also serves as the series finale, will probably last a similar amount of time as the final episode of season four. Ross Duffer stated that he did not want to create the television phenomena where a show’s finale is more of a “wind down” and the series’ climax occurs in the penultimate episode.
