Where are you, Stranger Things fans? We have a new update on the upcoming fifth and final season, and of course, this update comes from the one and only Noah Schnapp. He recently revealed some information about the production schedule for Stranger Things season 5, and we’re so excited to share it with you!
Everyone’s waiting for Stranger Things to return, but we all know we won’t be seeing the fifth season as quickly as we had hoped. A new season in 2023 would’ve been perfect, but there’s just no way the cast and crew will be finished with the filmmaking process in time. However, the good news is that we won’t have to wait as long as we did for the fourth season to see Stranger Things season 5. The Duffer Brothers have already confirmed that the wait will be shorter for the fifth season in a past interview with Variety.
Stranger Things star David Harbour has even hinted at the fifth season possibly coming in mid-2024 in an interview with GQ. Of course, nothing has been confirmed yet, but a 2024 release seems more likely.
Now we’ve learned through Noah Scnhapp, who plays Will Byers in the sci-fi series, that they’ll start shooting Stranger Things season 5 very soon. How soon, you ask? Here’s what we know.
Noah Schnapp shares Stranger Things season 5 filming update
We all know how much Noah Schnapp loves being on TikTok. However, we weren’t expecting him to reveal some juicy information about Stranger Things season 5 while going live on the platform.
While on TikTok live, Noah decided to answer some fan questions. One of the fan questions was asking him if school would interfere with him filming the fifth season. Noah replies by saying that school will not be a problem because he’ll be finished in May, and that’s when production on the fifth season will start. So, it looks like the cast and crew will begin shooting Stranger Things season 5 this May!
We had an inkling that cameras would start rolling in May, but now we have more of a confirmation. However, it’s worth mentioning that the start date for production could change. But for now, it looks like filming will begin in May 2023.
We’re probably looking at about five to six months of production before the new season moves on to the post-production process. Obviously, for a show like Stranger Things, post-production is where the series will spend the most time. This makes a mid-2024 release very probable. However, we’ll have to wait and see how everything turns out.
