“Season four, more than any prior season, really kicked our asses,” he said to E! News. “It took almost three years. It was three different locations, multiple countries, pre-pandemic, mid-pandemic, post-pandemic, and by far the biggest, most ambitious season we’ve attempted.”
And Shawn promised that the Stranger Things team will be bringing this same energy into the fifth and final season, noting, “Our ambitions remain pretty high and the way the audience has grown along with the cinematic scope of the show, I don’t expect that we’re going to mess with that approach going into season five.”
Seasons one through four of Stranger Things are available to stream on Netflix.
(E!, NBC and Peacock are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
