What Will Stranger Things 5 Be About?
In the final two episodes, Hopper, Joyce, and Murray escape from a Soviet prison. However, after learning that the rest of the Hawkins crew is battling yet another monster from the Upside Down, they double back to destroy the Russians' stockpile of demogorgons in order to weaken the hive mind.
Eleven, Mike, Will, Jonathan, and Argyle head to a Nevada-based Surfer Boy Pizza to replicate a sensory deprivation tank so she can reach Max. She meets Vecna again, but Max dies in Lucas' arms. El, realizing her power, brings Max back to life, but she remains in a coma.
Dustin and Eddie enter the Upside Down to lure the demo bats away from the Creel House while Eleven tries to save Max using a “piggyback” of her mind. Eddie () dies as a result of their attacks. Meanwhile, Robin, Steve, and Nancy use their weapons and flamethrowers to kill Vecna.
However, the fourth gate has been opened following Vecna's fourth kill (Max), and the entire city of Hawkins cracks along massive fault lines, creating a massive opening to the Upside Down. In the final scene, the entire crew is reunited in Hawkins, but Will reveals that Vecna is not dead and soon feels the Mind Flayer present — just as snow-like particles begin to fall from the sky.

What is the Release Date of Stranger Things Season 5?
Stranger Things season 5 is currently in the works, so we won't be able to watch it for a while. Not only that, but the production cost of each season is enormous.
Given that Stranger Things season, 4 took a year to produce and another eight months to post-produce before volume one was released, Season 5 is expected to arrive in late 2023. However, the final season could be postponed until 2024.
