Despite Stranger Things being one of Netflix's most popular TV shows, a recent report has revealed that the show will allegedly finish after season four, which is currently in preproduction. According to We Got This Covered, the fourth series might be extended beyond its usually run of eight episodes and split into two seasons, but it will be part of the same storyline. HELLO! has reached out to Netflix for comment.
According to the site, "the original plan was to make season four the last, [but] they’ve now decided to just extend the plot across an additional run. The second part, we’re told, may be marketed as season five, but it’ll essentially be the second half of season four". Mille Bobby Brown has recently revealed that filming for the new season is imminent. Answering a fan's question on Instagram, she said that filming will begin "early this year for sure," adding that she was "[very] excited".
