Stranger Things Season 5 is the talk of the town right now. What can we expect and when is it going to be released. The Season 4 finale of Stranger Things is enumerated in this article. With many questions lingering, where exactly is Max? When can Vecna be defeated? One question that has already been answered is: will there be a Season 5 of Stranger Things?
The good news is that Stranger Things will only be released for the first time in February 2022. Adding to the announcement, the streamer revealed that the show had received a fifth and final season. In part, the actors said:
Seven years ago, we planned out the entire story arc for Stranger Things. At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It was too large to tell in four, but as you’ll soon see for yourself, we are now reeling from the final season. Season 4 will be the last.
Fans were able to see how Season 4 would end for Stranger Things. Hell, the new big bad Vecna even states that Eleven and her friends have arrived at the beginning of the season. What will the end date in Stranger Things?
Let’s focus on this together as we dive deeper into what we know about Season 5 of Stranger Things and explain some ideas for how this epic tale will come to an end.
When Will Season 5 Premiere?
Season 5 of Stranger Things will premiere, but there are a few things that will wait as long as Season 3, season 4, after Season 3, 2019. It took about three years before Season 4 made its way to Netflix.
The pandemic can be attributed to a lot of this delay. Makeup effects department head Barrie Gower told Den of Geek that they began building Vecna in January 2020 before having to shut down production for three months. Another feature of the season 4s delay that can’t be ignored is that the Duffer Brothers wished to take the time to properly plot out the season finale.
The fact that Netflix has confidently announced a season 5 release alongside the season 4 release date information suggests that the Duffers and the rest of the show production team will likely be prepared to get rolling fairly soon. If Season 5 was a late 2023 or early 2024 release date, we would not be surprised.
Will Vecna Be the Big Bad?
Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) suggested that the Demogorgon was the Mind Flayers foot soldier, while Vecna (Jaime Campbell Bower) was his five-star general. While Dustin was correct in assuming that the humanoid Vecna was more powerful than any Demo-creatures, it appears as though he still underrated the dark wizard.
Vecna, formerly known as Number One and before that as Henry Creel, announces to Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) in the season 4 finale that he was to his liking. From that point on, Vecna found Eleven as a powerful component of the real world. He then sought Eleven as a substitute for The Upside Down, which he in turn could transform into The Upside Down.
Vecna has been in season 5. The series a lot for the entire time, and according to Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), he has yet to be defeated. Will, despite his previous connections with the Mind Flayer (who was operating as part of Vecna), can still experience Vecna’s presence. He knows that, despite the seemingly fatal burn wounds, that Vecna will recover. And fight he will in season 5.
What’s Happening to Hawkins?
Vecna’s goal is to avoid the ugly chaos of The Upside Down on our unsuspecting planet. The main benefit of the season 4 finale is that he kind of succeeds in this mission. By successful Max (more on that in a moment), Vecna was able to open the fourth gate and in the process break the dam connecting the two realities.
The destruction of the dam has immediate destructive repercussions as the break creates a 7.6 magnitude earthquake in Hawkins that killed at least 22 people. Unfortunately, that earthquake was just the beginning of the bad news to come. The Upside Down is a large portion of the natural landscape that is effective in black and white. Not only that but there are ominous black clouds tinged with red lightning in the sky and they are advancing.
The typical Hawkins residents, like Mikes’s dad Ted (Joe Christ), are debating the notion that the town is cursed. However, they may have no choice but to believe.
Where is Max?
Perhaps the greatest mystery that Season 5 of Stranger Things will have to confront is Max Mayfield’s whereabouts. To be clear, we know where Max’s body is. She currently lives in a hospital bed in Hawkins, deep in a coma. However, we do not know where she is.
Eleven was able to manage Max’s life by using psychic abilities heretofore not known to us. However, Max’s consciousness appears to have collapsed when Eleven attempts to hack into her mind in the hospital. There is nothing but an empty area with ankle-deep water. What do Max Mayfield’s origins hold?
Max’s mind is still alive in the thrall of Vecna. Since that would suck we’re just going to guess that her mind is off traveling the immaterial world looking for a weapon to knock the monster down once and for all.
