Weird things Creators Matt and Ross Duffer have expanded on what fans can expect from the fifth and final season of the 1980s Netflix phenomenon.
The filmmakers of the twins were asked, during a Sunday night session at the Todome Theater in Los Angeles, whether there were new cultural influences in the ’80s that would shape the final season, in the way that A Nightmare on Elm Street It was formed by villain Freddy Krueger in a two-part fourth season this summer.
“[Season] 5, the way we see it, is kind of the culmination of all seasons, so I’ve got a little bit of each,” Ross Dover told Busy House. Broad range, it’s more in line with what it is 4. So, I hope it has a little bit of everything.”
A major factor that sets Season 5 apart from the others, according to Matt Dover, is that the danger the world now faces is “all out in the open” — not just for our teenage heroes from Hawkins, Indiana, but their parents and the rest of their community as well.
Weird thingsFor starters, it’s a science fiction drama that follows a group of teens in the Midwest as they battle supernatural forces linked to an alternate reality known as The Upside Down. The show’s final season begins months after the Battle of Starcourt, which brought horror and destruction to Hawkins. Faced with the consequences, our group of friends got separated for the first time — and navigating the intricacies of high school didn’t make things easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and terrifying supernatural threat emerges, presenting a horrific mystery that, if solved, could put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down game.
The Duffers were joined by Tonight’s panel – which was moderated by Patton Oswalt – by EP director Shawn Levy, as well as longtime cast members Caleb McLaughlin, Priah Ferguson and Millie Bobby Brown – with the latter, which roughly rhymes. Others who have appeared in person include popular Season 4 extras Joseph Quinn, Eduardo Franco, and Jimmy Campbell Power.
While the conversation was brief about the major takeaways of Season 5, Ross Dover confirmed that the writing staff on Episode Two, having handed over the first script to Netflix “two weeks ago.” (The opening title for Season 5 is “Chapter 1: Crawl,” Netflix revealed just last week.)
Ross shared that the team is advancing “full force” in the writing process, having “first developed an overarching plan and backstory” for the Upside Down back in Season 2. He added that while some of the questions surrounding this fictional arena were answered over the course of Season 4, there would still be “very little” to unravel in the show’s final year. “But just as important as the supernatural is, we have many characters now, and most of them are still alive,” Dover continued. “It’s important to finish these arcs because a lot of these characters have grown since season 1. So it’s a balancing act between giving them time to complete their character arcs, and also tying up these loose ends and doing the final reveal.”
Levy, in conclusion, saw that the equilibrium the Duffers sought was the equilibrium they were able to achieve. “I’m paralyzed by the fear of spoiling anything, but I will say, the thing about these Duffer brothers is that even though the show has become very popular and the characters have become so iconic, the ’80s and the supernatural and the genre, it’s about these guys. It’s about these guys. Characters. “Season 5 has really started to take an interest in these stories of characters, because that’s always been their lifeline Weird things. “
Weird things It received 13 Emmy nominations for its fourth season, with wins in the areas of make-up, sound editing, sound mixing, music supervision and coordinating movements. The show, produced by Monkey Massacre Productions and 21 Laps Entertainment, was renewed for its fifth and final season in February, although it is not clear when this latest chapter will premiere on Netflix. Levy exec produces alongside Dan Cohen for 21 Laps, as well as Duffers, Iain Paterson and Curtis Gwinn.
