Stranger Things Season 5 Production Delayed Due to Writers Strike

NOTE: This article is 10 months old and may not include the most recent information.

Netflix’s popular series Stranger Things has hit a roadblock as the production of its fifth and final season is being postponed due to the ongoing writers strike. The Duffer Brothers, creators and showrunners of the show, have decided to delay the start of production, rather than proceeding without the presence of writers on set.

The Stranger Things writers took to their official Twitter account to explain the situation: “Writing does not stop when filming begins. While we’re excited to start production with our amazing cast and crew, it is not possible during this strike. We hope a fair deal is reached soon so we can all get back to work. Until then — over and out. #wgastrong.”

Although the scripts for the final season are believed to be complete, with writing having started on August 2nd, no new start date has been set for production. Season 5’s filming schedule, which was supposed to commence soon, will indeed be pushed back.

In a previous interview, Matt and Ross Duffer emphasized the importance of delivering a satisfying conclusion to the series. Matt Duffer stated, “Characters are already going to be in action, they’re already going to have a goal and a drive, and I think that’s going to carve out at least a couple hours and make this season feel really different.” He also hinted at a ‘Return of the King’-ish finale, with multiple endings to wrap up the storylines.

Fans eagerly awaiting the final season of Stranger Things will have to exercise patience as the industry works through the writers strike. With a focus on achieving a fair resolution, the hope is that the creative team can soon return to work and bring the much-anticipated conclusion to life.
