'Stranger Things' Season 5: Everything We Know

Note: This post has no spoilers for Stranger Things season 4, volume 2

It’s crazy to think that there’s only one more season of Stranger Things left, but all good things must come to an end including what has become one of the greatest shows of our generation.

Ahead of season 4’s release, Netflix confirmed the series would return for another season and that season 5 would be the show’s last. As fans of the show, it’s crazy to think that there’s only one more season planned for the show that put Netflix on the map and continues to be one of the biggest hits on TV.

Given how season 4 ended, it’s clear we’re in for an unforgettable final season and that Eleven and the gang are about to face their biggest fight yet. What remains a mystery is when the season will take place with the rumored time jump coming, how the series will come to an end and who exactly will be back for the final season.

Stranger Things season 5 cast predictions

As Stranger Things prepares to come to an end, it’s expected it will do so with help of all our favorite characters — at least those who survived the events of season 4. While Netflix is likely to confirm the full cast list closer to the start of production, it is expected that all of the show’s key players will return including the following:

Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers David Harbour as Jim Hopper Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven

Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair

Noah Schnapp as Will Byers Sadie Sink as Max Mayfield Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler

Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers Joe Keery as Steve Harrington Maya Hawke as Robin Buckley

Paul Reiser as Dr. Sam Owens Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler Eduardo Franco as Argyle

Amybeth McNulty as Vickie Tom Wlaschiha as Dmitri Antonov Jamie Campbell Bower as Vecna / One / Henry

In addition to returning cast members, it’s also expected we’ll meet at least a few new faces and we also can’t rule out the return of former cast members in recurring or one-off guest appearances.
