‘Stranger Things’ will wrap up with its upcoming fifth and final season. The supernatural coming of age series has remained wildly popular as fans have watched the residents of Hawkins fight a mysterious evil for years. As the show heads to its conclusion, the Duffer Brothers have offered fans a peak into what’s in store for the epic finale.
Spoiler Alert: Fans who do not want any details on Stranger Things 5 should not read any further.
In season four of Stranger Things, the main characters were split up in multiple locations for the better part of the episodes. Hopper and Joyce Byers were in a Russian prison, while another group remained in Hawkins and a third team traveled from California in search of Eleven. Now that everyone is back together, season five will once again start as a full group effort.
The Duffer Brothers recently spoke to Collider about the details and key locations for the fifth season of Stranger Things. Most of the action will take place in familiar locales. Hawkins and the Upside Down will be the main locations.
“It’s mostly in Hawkins, and there’s a lot obviously in the Upside Down … We do a couple more big reveals in Volume 2, but it’s all related to Vecna, Henry, and his journey. But what we haven’t really discussed is exactly what the Upside Down is … The big reveals that are coming in Season 5 are really about the Upside Down itself, which we only start to hint at. There is that moment where we realize in episode seven this year that it’s frozen in time.”
The final season of Stranger Things will look to recreate the magic of the first season, which stayed local to Hawkins and the mysterious parallel universe known as the Upside Down. It makes sense for the show to finally come full circle. As Eleven and her friends prepare for the ultimate final battle, fans will have to wait a while to see how everything turns out.
