The first screenplay from Stranger Things Season 5 has been posted by the show’s writers.
While the actors was unable to attend The Stranger Things Day because SAG-AFTRA is currently fighting for a fair contract with the AMPTP. The writers and Netflix crew were able to pump fans up about lots of exciting developments in the Stranger Things world.
The fans have a lot to be happy about, from the first video from The First Shadow to the return of the Dead by Daylight DLC. However, one of the most significant revelations of the day came with the opening screenplay lines for the first episode of the last season.
The script reads, “DARKNESS. The sound of COLD WIND. GROANING TREES. And…A CHILD’S VOICE. Singing a familiar song.”
Although the opening scene of Stranger Things Season 5 doesn’t give away much about the plot or the characters involved, it piques the fans’ curiosity.
The identity of the child is a mystery – could it be Will or Max in a flashback, or perhaps a new character in the future?
The iconic music choices in every season create a sense of anticipation about which “familiar song” the show will feature. It can be the classic “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” by The Clash, which is closely tied to Will’s storyline, or emotionally impactful tracks like Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill,” which have left a lasting impression on fans after their use in a memorable scene in Season 4.
