The fifth season of Stranger Things is officially underway and The Duffer Brothers have been hard at work writing the new series. The latest from the writer’s room was a very blurry look at the entire plot of the season — but before you get too excited, it looks like even the internet’s biggest sleuths are struggling to figure out what it’s saying.
It is undoubtedly one of the best series on Netflix, and the interest in the series among fans leads to many hypotheses, as numerous spoilers have been circulating on social media for months, anticipating the next plot and arcs of the season. If you want to know about the upcoming season, then you are in the perfect place as we have compiled a list of potential spoilers that are doing the rounds on social media.
Will season 5 feature any new characters?
In an interaction with IndieWire, the Duffer Siblings talked about the show’s character development and revealed that they want to focus on the show’s main characters in the upcoming finale. “Whenever we introduce a new character, we want to make sure they’re an integral part of the story,” Ross Duffer said.
Matt Duffer said, “We’re doing our best to resist [adding new characters] for Season 5. We’re trying not to do that so we can focus on the OG characters, I think.”
Vecna will most likely be the main antagonist of the season
Two episodes of the second volume feature a fight between Vecna and the youths, in which the villain is badly damaged but not dead. Will gets the usual warning twinkle in the back of the head at the end of the season, regardless of how the viewer never sees his dead body. As a result, Season 5 will surely feature Eleven and Vecna’s final battle for the fate of the globe.
