“I try not to think about it”: Stranger Things Star Reveals His Feelings About Final Season After 6 Years

“I try not to think about it”: Stranger Things Star Reveals His Feelings About Final Season After 6 Years

Stranger Things has had a good run for about seven years now. But with time, every story comes to an end and the Hawkins story arc too will soon be wrapped up with its fifth and final season. While no official release date for season 5 has been divulged yet, it is expected to premiere in 2024. Despite there being a gap of a whole year though, fans of the show are already emotional as they brace themselves for the finale. But they’re not the only ones crestfallen to see Stranger Things approach its end.

Throughout the four seasons of the Duffer brothers-helmed series, the star cast has naturally become as close as family. After all, seven years is a long time. So now that the show is treading toward its last season, the cast members are just as disheartened about it as their fans, probably even more so.

Finn Wolfhard is Emotional About the Stranger Things Finale

In an interview with Discussing Film about working with Guillermo del Toro in Pinocchio, Finn Wolfhard was asked how he felt about “the eve” of the final season of Stranger Things. And putting it simply, he’s a wreck of emotions while just thinking about bidding farewell to the show for good.

Most of the time, Wolfhard does his best to not dwell too much on the subject but when he does, it starts to feel like a “graduation” event, making him utterly sentimental. But while “it’s sad” that Stranger Things will soon be ending, the Canadian actor also remarked just how important it is for the show’s story to be concluded in the best way possible.

“I try not to think about it so that I don’t go insane. I think it’s sad but it’s necessary. It almost feels like some graduation. I think just for me, the most important thing is the story should end where it’s appropriate. And I think the Duffers have a good idea for the end and I still don’t know it, but yeah, I’m excited. I’m nervous, and I’m all the things. I’m all the emotions!”

Wolfhard also hinted that the Duffer brothers seem to have big plans for the grand ending so fans are likely to be on the edge of their seats during the last season.

Plot details along with the release date of season 5 are currently being kept under wraps, but because filming is believed to start this very year, it is most likely to premiere in 2024. Writing on the other hand has already officially commenced and as Netflix revealed, the first episode of season 5 is titled ‘Chapter One: The Crawl.’ While the original crew will be returning for the finale season, sources claim that no new characters will be introduced.

While there are tons of details about season 5 that continue to remain a mystery, one thing is certain, the show is going to go out with a bang. After all, the Duffer brother’s pitch for the final season made the executives shed tears.

Stranger Things is available for streaming on Netflix.
