Since 2016, every November 6 is special for subscribers of Netflix as it is celebrated worldwide stranger things day. It is an entire day dedicated to the series starring Millie Bobby Brown that has become a phenomenon and has generated millions of fans globally, who celebrate the date through social networks. This year, as part of this commemoration, the name of the first chapter of the fifth season was announced, as well as the image of the cover of the script.

The official account of stranger things in Twitter revealed that episode one of the new installment will be titled “Chapter One: The Crawl” (could be translated as “The tracking”). In the shared image it is also detailed that the story is written by the creators of the series Matt Y Ross Duffer. This is not a surprise since from the first season, the scripts of the first chapters are elaborated by the brothers. The name does not reveal much and does not give great clues about what the plot will be. The writing of the scripts for the last installment of this universe continues, after having started last August.

After the success that marked the fourth season of the show this summer, Steve Weintraubdirector of photography for the series spoke with Collider. He revealed that although the previous adventure took the protagonists to places like California or Russia, for this final closure, the story will take place mainly in Hawkins and the city’s mirror universe. In addition, the remaining episodes are expected to explain what exactly is that parallel reality that the show shows. After the premiere of volume 2 of the previous installment, Ross Duffer said that: “The big revelations that will come for season 5 will really be about the Upside Down per se”.

“Seven years ago, we planned the entire story arc of stranger things. At the time, we predicted that the story would last four or five seasons. It was too big to count in four, but as you will soon see for yourselves, we are now hurtling towards our end. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last”, said the creators during the launch of the fourth installment. On that occasion the Duffers joked that: “There are still many more exciting stories to be told within the world of stranger things ; new mysteries, new adventures, unexpected new heroes.”

It is expected that the filming of the fifth part of stranger things start sometime in 2023. So far there has been no official announcement as to when the new chapters will be available to watch, however, it is likely to be until the summer of 2024. The series stars Winona Ryder, David Harbor, Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Natalia Dyer, Maya Hawke, Joe Keery, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, Priah Ferguson and Jamie Campbell Bower. The fourth season also featured appearances by Joseph Quinn, Matthew Modine, Edward Frank, Gabriella Pizzello, Amybeth McNulty Y Paul Reiser although there has been no official announcement as to whether any of these actors will return.

The television series is set in the 1980s, primarily in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, and focuses on a host of mysteries and paranormal occurrences that impact a group of teenage friends. The Duffer Brothers’ television series combines investigative drama with supernatural elements that are depicted with childlike horror and sensibility, as well as references to the pop culture of the time. Several thematic and directing elements were inspired by some well-known Hollywood directors. They were also influenced by Cold War experiments and covert government testing hypotheses.

The first four seasons of stranger things are available to view right now at Netflix.
