The upcoming season of Netflix’s popular adventure-horror series, Stranger Things, is set to kick off in the new year. According to Deadline, filming for the Stranger Things final season is scheduled to begin in early January after delays caused by strikes earlier in the year. The last season saw the characters, led by Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), facing off against Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower), and now they must confront the lingering threat in the upcoming episodes.
David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper, had previously mentioned that filming the Stranger Things final season was a top priority for Netflix after the strikes concluded. The production, originally slated for the summer, was repeatedly pushed back due to the labor disputes. Writers of the series have been teasing fans by sharing storyboards and pre-visualization sequences on social media.
The main cast, including Brown, Finn Wolfhard, and Harbour, will be joined by familiar faces like Winona Ryder, Noah Schnapp, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Sadie Sink for the final season. The storyline will revolve around the aftermath of Eddie Munson’s (Joseph Quinn) death, with the core group dealing with the consequences. The fate of Hawkins and the world will be at stake as Eleven faces off against Vecna in the ultimate battle.
