"Stranger Things" Status Report.

What we know and what we don't.

Here are the basics:

UPDATE, January 8, 2024:

  • Production officially begins on the series' final season. The budget is rumoured to be in the "hundreds of millions" of dollars (likely $250M - $300M). Also, nothing has been said yet, but expect an early 2025 release date. Why? Recent comments by producer Shawn Levy hint at ST5 being similar to (if not bigger than) the biggest blockbuster movie you've ever seen. And reality dictates that a $250M spectacle takes more than one year to shoot, edit, score, etc. If I were a betting man, I'd put my money on 2025.

June 6, 2023:

  • With WGA on strike, and no foreseeable end in sight, the odds of ST5 principal photography beginning before September are long. The performers union, SAG/AFTRA, will very likely be joining the writers on the picket lines. On June 5, the union voted overwhelmingly to strike. What does that mean? Late 2024 release date is probable.

August 2, 2022:
