Vecna’s curse continues
Stranger Things has been trending well over a month, as its highly-anticipated fourth season was released in two parts. The second part released over the weekend, and brought in massive streaming numbers for Netflix. We are left with just one more season – the epic conclusion. Before we get to that, here are excerpts from an interview between Josh Horowitz and the show’s creators, Matt and Ross Differ.
The Duffer Brothers on Stranger Things Season 5
The Duffer brothers appeared on the latest episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast, and had a spoiler-y conversation with Horowitz. They spoke about the story, the deaths, and what’s in store for Stranger Things season five. They started with the runtime, which was at a record high this season. Almost all of them ran for nearly 80 minutes, while the last three episodes were the size of feature films, with episode 8 clocking in at 2 hours and 25 minutes.
The Duffers say that they don’t expect season five’s episodes to be that long, except for the finale. For the finale, they are going to do the same as they did with season 4 finale and do a two and a half hour episode.
About The Season Four Finale
The finale of Stranger Things season 4 was heavy hitting, with Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) dying. Max Mayfield (Sadie Sink), on the other hand, nearly got killed by Vecna and survived thanks to Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown). However, she had her bones broken, lost her eyesight, and is brain dead on top of that. Vecna got seriously injured, but did not die.
The creators said that Stranger Things season 4 has established the characters’ lives properly, and with season 5, they can get straight into the action.
