Get ready to delve back into the world of 80s nostalgia, thrilling mysteries, and heart-pounding scares as Stranger Things Season 5 explodes onto your screen this summer. Are you ready to return to Hawkins one last time?

Stranger Things Season 5 release date


While excitement builds for the final chapter of the Hawkins saga, Stranger Things fans will have to wait a little longer. Season 5 won't be hitting Netflix screens in 2024. Due to the show's reliance on complex visual effects and delays caused by the 2023 Hollywood strikes, the Stranger Things Season 5 release date has been pushed back to 2025. This wait will allow the creators to deliver a season that will match the epic scope fans expect.

Stranger Things Season 5 cast


The showdown in Hawkins is assembling its team. Stranger Things Season 5 brings back all your favourite characters — Winona Ryder reprises her role as the tenacious Joyce Byers, alongside David Harbour as the gruff-yet-lovable Jim Hopper (who hopefully gets a well-deserved break from Russia this time).  

Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, and the other young heroes are all set to return. Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton will return as Nancy and Jonathan Byers, ready to delve into the Upside Down's mysteries once more. And who could forget everyone's favourite babysitter, Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), and his witty sidekick Robin Buckley (Maya Hawke)? Newcomer Linda Hamilton also joins the cast, though details about her character remain shrouded in secrecy. Get ready to see these heroes, old and new, band together for one last epic battle against the forces of darkness.

Stranger Things Season 5 trailer 

While a full trailer for Stranger Things Season 5 hasn't dropped yet, Netflix has released a haunting teaser to whet fans' appetites. Eerie shots of Hawkins flicker across the screen, starkly contrasting the seemingly peaceful lives the characters are trying to build. A voice, possibly Eleven's, warns of a growing danger, hinting at a monstrous threat from the Upside Down. Glimpses of the gang, scattered and perhaps even older, raise questions about their current situation. The teaser ends with a cryptic message: "Eleven, it's time." This chilling call to action leaves fans desperate for more, eager to see the ragtag group reunite and face whatever horrors await them in the Upside Down's final assault.

Though the wait continues until 2025, the final season promises an epic conclusion. With a beloved cast returning, a terrifying new threat emerging, and the promise of a satisfying resolution, Stranger Things season 5 is poised to leave a lasting impact.
