The fifth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things is one of the most anticipated television series in some time, and according to star Noah Schnapp, production on the season is set to begin soon.
During a recent TikTok Live session, Schnapp was asked by a fan if his schooling would be impeded in any way by the final season of the show. According to Schnapp that won’t be an issue at all, because as he revealed, his schooling is set to end in May, the same time as Season 5 is set to begin production.
“Is school going to interfere with shooting? No, it’s not,” Schnapp said in the video. “I’m done with school in May, and starting to shoot in May.”
Stranger Things is set in the 1980s in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. When a young boy vanishes, a small town uncovers a mystery involving secret experiments, terrifying supernatural forces, and one strange little girl.
The series currently stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Joe Keery, Charlie Heaton, Sadie Sink, Maya Hawke, Priah Ferguson, Cara Buono, and Brett Gelman.
Stranger Things Season 4 set a record for Netflix, having been viewed for more than 287 million hours during the week of May 23-30. That’s not only good enough for the top spot of the week for Netflix, but it’s also more than enough to break the record for the streaming platform’s biggest-ever premiere weekend for an English-language series, which was previously held by the second season of Bridgerton (193 million hours).
