Here's why Stranger Things has to come to an end after season 5

Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy has shared why the beloved Millie Bobby Brown Netflix series has to come to an end with season 5.

In an open letter to fans, the Duffer Brothers confirmed last month that the fifth chapter will mark the end of the saga, with the upcoming fourth instalment airing in two parts.

Weighing in on the decision to bring the sci-fi drama to an end, Levy said the team behind the show didn’t want to go beyond the arc that had been originally mapped out.

‘Well, we never wanted to run on fumes and we wanted to only tell as much story as the brothers saw and feel with clarity,’ he explained.

‘So it’s been clear for a while that they know exactly where we’re headed and this is the arc.

‘We wouldn’t want to stick around for one moment beyond that vision and the clarity of that voice.

‘So rather than focusing on that sad day that happens who knows when, the end of season five, I’ll just once again reaffirm what I’ve told everyone, which is it has been a long-ass wait for season four. But I swear to God, the world will realise it’s worth it.’

Netflix previously announced that a ‘supersized’ fourth series of Stranger Things will arrive in two volumes later this year.

The show will make its highly anticipated return to screens on May 27 before a second batch of episodes arrives on July 1.

While the plot for the new episodes has been kept pretty under wraps so far, an official synopsis has now been released.

It reads: ‘It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins

‘Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things any easier.

‘In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.’

We’re ready!

Stranger Things season 4 part 1 airs May 27 on Netflix.
