Stranger Things: Why does Netflix series need to end in season 5?

    Stranger Things would be no different. Everything passes, everything comes to an end. According to creator Shawn Levy, the popular Netflix series may be finished in Season 5, following a successful journey led by the cast of Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp, Finn Wolfhard, Sadie Sink, Caleb McLaughlin, and Gaten Matarazzo.

    Matt and Ross Duffer, the show’s creators, have been working on a tight, finishing storyline since season two, and they’ve revealed why: “As we travel, everything changes, so we’ll see. [Stranger Things] has a definitive story. I don’t want to be one of those shows that loses its breath and the thread because the audience loses interest. You want to come in first.”

    That’s fantastic news, but the producers have previously said that both Netflix and the actors’ management want the show to continue. But why is Stranger Things so wonderful that it ends in Season 5? So, we have some theories!

    1) Preserve the original storyline idea

    Stranger Things began with the idea of bringing a children’s universe to life in the real world. We’ve seen the anarchy of play transform into a supernatural enemy that stalks the entire city in the D&D game. The aim has faded as the seasons pass, children have matured and are less engaged in the beloved RPG that set the tone in the series’ initial year.

    Stranger Things can’t last much longer, with the actors maturing and the series’ basic idea drifting away. Regardless of whether the decision to continue with the attraction for many seasons ahead is made, the audience and dedicated followers will continue to exist, but if the aim is to preserve the quality of the series, the 5th season is the perfect moment to end the tale.

    2) The kids have grown far too quickly.

    Stranger Things’ youthful cast is going through puberty at a rapid speed, just like kids in real life. Due to the coronavirus pandemic’s recording delays, performers in the Netflix series risk looking considerably older than the Hawkins locals they portray.

    This issue began to emerge in the third season of Stranger Things, with the more adult characters and more meaningful relationships, and it may increase in Season 4, owing to production that lasted from February 2020 to August 2021.

    How much more is there? Stranger Things will continue, but the show’s schedule will be out of sync with the original reality, and Season 5 may be the last time the actors appears young enough to perform their parts credibly. Let’s face it: no one wants to see Will Byers with a full-time job and a beard!

    3) The cast is working on new projects.

    It wasn’t just the Stranger Things buddies who grew and developed! The primary cast of the show is taking off and working on numerous other projects. The actors have appeared in various films over the years, like Finn Wolfhard in Ghostbusters: The Legacy, David Harbor in Black Widow, Millie Bobby Brown in Enola Holmes, Sadie Sink in Fear Street, and so on.

    So, not only will the age problem increase, but audience enthusiasm may fade when new series with fascinating actors emerge to “take” the cast that was so popular in Stranger Things. What if, over time, one of them chooses to go into franchising? Before the core group is dismembered, the Netflix series must come to an end.

    So why not wrap things up in Season 5? This is an excellent moment to finalize any problems concerning Hopper’s new fate, the Russian conspiracy, Eleven’s background, and whatever else you have on your plate. As a result, the audience does not lose interest, and there is less chance of losing any of the famous cast members.
