Not bad news at all considering how long we’ve all had to wait for the next chapter in the story. However, there IS bad news, accompanying that announcement was a letter from the Duffer Brothers, telling fans that the show ill indeed end with season 5.

“With nine scripts, over eight-hundred pages, almost two years of filming, thousands of visual effects shots, and a runtime nearly twice the length of any previous season, Stranger Things 4 was the most challenging season yet, but also the most rewarding one.”
“Everyone involved is incredibly proud of the results, and we can’t wait to share it with you. Given the unprecedented length, and to get it to you as soon as possible, Season 4 will be released in two volumes. … It’s coming soon. And it’s bigger than ever. It’s also the beginning of the end.”
The letter goes on to explain how the show’s end is now in sight.
“Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for Stranger Things. At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons… It proved too large to tell in four, but – as you’ll soon see for yourselves – we are now hurtling toward our finale. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last.”
Stranger Things stars Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, Sadie Sink, Gaten Matarazzo and Millie Bobby Brown as adolescent misfits fighting back against mysterious otherworldly creatures in the small town of Hawkins. The shows has been a massive success for Netflix and heralded in the age of binge TV. It surely is as sad for them to see the show come to a close, as it it for fans. But hey, look on the bright side, we still have two solid chapters to sink our teeth into before we say good bye.
