Netflix is the home of some of the biggest shows on television that have already run (or are guaranteed to run) for many seasons, but the streamer has also gained a reputation for canceling shows after just one batch of episodes. Now, as the writers of Stranger Things announced that they’re getting to work on the fifth and final season, news has broken that another show got the axe after just eight episodes this summer.
Stranger Things Is Getting Ready For Season 5
Stranger Things‘ fourth season released the second of its two volumes back in early July, leaving fans on a doozy of a cliffhanger about the fate of not only Hawkins as a whole, but also Max as a character. There is no confirmation of when Season 5 will arrive to finish the Stranger Things story (and no guarantee that the wait will be shorter than between Seasons 3 and 4), but the writers had some encouraging news:
The writers are officially getting back to work! They’ve had just a little over a month since fans got to see the twists and tragedies of the end of Season 4, which was the first in Stranger Things history that was fully written before filming began due to the pandemic delays. It’s not clear just yet if the Duffer brothers want to do the same thing for Season 5, but since these episodes will be the last, it seems like the right time to plan all the way ahead.
