Stranger Things 4 has been a massive success for Netflix. The show has amassed a tremendous fan base as its supernatural storyline continues to captivate viewers. Stranger Things’ creators recently revealed details about the upcoming fifth and final season.
The creators of Netflix’s massive hit Stranger Things have announced that the fifth and final season will focus on the “OG” characters. The phenomenon’s creators are Ross and Matt Duffer. They told Indiewire that they are focused on wrapping up stories for the characters they introduced to the world in season 1, which premiered in 2016.
Matt stated that they are trying to resist the addition of new characters, while Ross described the process of introducing a new character and the effort of making them an integral part.
“We’re doing our best to resist [adding new characters] for Season 5. We’re trying not to do that so we can focus on the OG characters, I guess.”
“Whenever we introduce a new character, we want to make sure that they’re going to be an integral part of the narrative. So that’s something with Eddie this season, where we go, ‘Well, we need a character here for this storyline to really work, and to give it the engine that is needed.’ But every time we do that, we’re nervous, because you go, ‘We’ve got a great cast of characters here, and actors, and any moment we’re spending with a new character, we’re taking time away from one of the other actors.’ So we’re just very, very careful about who we’re introducing.”
Season 1 introduced series regulars Millie Bobby Brown, Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin. As well as Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, and Matthew Modine. In season 2, Joe Keery and Noah Schnapp were bumped to series regulars, along with Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery. Later seasons saw the addition of Maya Hawke and Priah Ferguson to the cast.
Joseph Quinn was the breakout star of Season 4. However, as the show’s scope has expanded beyond the central setting of Hawkins, Indiana, numerous additional characters have appeared. The Duffers have stated that season 5 would bring the story full circle by focusing on Schnapp’s character Will Byers.
It will be interesting to watch how the creators wrap up each character’s journey. Let’s wait and see what happens. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
