It has been a month since Stranger Things successfully concluded its nine-episode fourth season, and now we finally got an update regarding the current progress of the sci-fi horror series’ forthcoming fifth season.
The Strangers Things writing team, which is led by creators Matt and Ross Duffer, took to Twitter to confirm that the scriptwriting process for the final episodes of the beloved Netflix series has officially begun.
The fifth season currently has no release date attached to it yet, but given that it’s still in the early stages of pre-production, fans might have to wait a while for the fan-favorite series to make its final return.
