Linda Hamilton Reflects on ‘Terminator’ and Almost Retiring Before ‘Stranger Things’ Role -Source

Stranger Things is coming to Broadway as a play! No official announcement has been made yet, but the casting notice refers to a "production in 2025."

Millie Bobby Brown Says ‘Stranger Things 5’ Has 9 Months of Filming Left

It's reasonable to anticipate a significant number of casualties in the upcoming final season. Historically, the series has tended to eliminate newly introduced characters, even though their deaths were emotionally impactful (such as Barbara Holland, Bob Newby, and Eddie Munson, all perishing in the same season they were introduced). However, in Season 5, all assumptions are off the table—no character is exempt from potential harm.

Despite the unpredictable dangers, there's one character who may emerge unscathed. The telekinetic teenager Eleven, also known as Jane Hopper, stands as Hawkins' last line of defense against the formidable "dark wizard" Vecna, who recently resurfaced in a new Stranger Things prequel. While each character in the series is a hero in their own right, including Steve Harrington, Nancy Wheeler, and Jim Hopper, Eleven's superpowers uniquely position her to confront Vecna.

It's challenging for fans to envision the demise of the beloved and seemingly invincible Eleven. Moreover, the thought of another actor portraying her, aside from the synonymous Millie Bobby Brown, is even more unsettling. However, rumors suggest that Linda Hamilton, the iconic Terminator star cast in Season 5, will portray an older version of Eleven, hinting at the character's survival well beyond the Hawkins battle.

During Netflix's fan event in São Paulo, Brazil, it was revealed that Linda Hamilton will be joining the cast of Stranger Things for its fifth and final season.

The announcement of Hamilton's casting was made on Saturday, but no specific details regarding her character have been disclosed at this time.

Linda Hamilton is widely recognized for her iconic role as Sarah Connor in the Terminator franchise, with her most recent appearance in 2019's Terminator: Dark Fate. Her remarkable talent has earned her an Emmy nomination and two Golden Globe nominations for her work in the CBS series Beauty and the Beast, while her performance in USA Network's A Mother's Prayer garnered her a third Golden Globe nomination. Hamilton is represented by Innovative Artists.

According to Finn Wolfhard, star of Stranger Things, the highly anticipated Season 5 will provide answers to many lingering questions, ensuring a fulfilling conclusion for fans of the popular Netflix series. -Source

UPDATE: ‘Stranger Things’ filming halted because of writers’ strike. No word yet if this will delay the release.

Because of the writers' strike, preparations for the fifth and final season of "Stranger Things" have been put on hold.

The Duffer brothers, who are the show's co-creators and co-showrunners, posted a statement over the weekend on the writers' room account for the Netflix series.

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) went on strike on May 2 in an effort to get studios and streaming services to improve their pay and make other concessions.

Stranger Things season 5 is officially underway, with the Stranger Things writers' Twitter account confirming the news by posting a picture of a white board with the series logo captioned 'Day 1'.

With the pandemic no longer causing production delays, we could see the series' final outing land as early as 2024.

All details for Stranger Things Season 5 in this short video:

The Duffer brothers flat-out told Variety that the wait shouldn't be as long this time, but also, they haven't started filming yet. So we'd estimate a year and a half, which would put the show in early 2024. (David Harbour, who plays Hopper, is guessing mid-2024.)

Not gon' lie— Eduardo Franco was a forgettable character to me. When I got the clickbait email from PremiereDate saying a "fan favorite" character was not returning for Season 5, I wouldn't have guessed it was him if I was given 100 chances to guess.

‘Stranger Things’ Renewed For Fifth And Final Season, Gets Premiere Dates For Split Season 4 As Duffer Brothers Tease Potential Spinoffs

In addition to the climactic renewal, the company said the long-awaited Season 4 of the show will premiere in two “volumes,” the first on May 27 and the second on July 1. In an open letter to fans, co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer said the split season resulted from the season’s nine episodes having a total running time twice as long as that of any previous season.

The Duffer Bros noted that the full arc was expected to be “four or five” seasons when they first envisioned the show, so the end is not a surprise. Plus, it won’t be the end of the franchise, they promised.

“There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things: new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes,” they wrote. “But first we hope you stay with us as we finish this tale.” (source: Deadline. com)

2019!! Are they wanting to start a riot!! We have had a season of ST two years running and now they want us to wait 2 years for the 3rd Season!!!??? What a load! They have control and they know it and they are just using us and it to their advantage! TOTALLY SUCKS!

If you aren't going to air the next season for two years at least give us a good reason ie: Someone was hurt and needs to recover to play their roll.........SOMETHING!! Geesh!

OMFG. I luv this show suuuuu much. Skrew the ppl who say "it's too scary" or "it's just a show". Cuz it isn't just a show to me. It's life. I was suprized and creeped out when I saw Nancy's friend dead with a creepy-ass slug coming out of her mouth. I love the concept of another dimension. It's intriguing. CAN'T wait till season 2. Totally hooked. And I was pizzed when Nancy was still with Steve. At least johnathan will get a chance in season 2. I was like 'da funk' when will coughed up a slug on the last episode. Seriously can't wait for season 2.
