As ‘Stranger Things‘ season 5 continues filming, a series of behind-the-scenes images shared by co-creator Ross Duffer has sparked a flurry of theories among the show’s avid fans. These cryptic snapshots hint at what lies ahead in the eagerly awaited final season of the Netflix hit series.
One of the intriguing images features Mike (played by Finn Wolfhard), showcasing his new living space adorned with a ‘Star Wars’ poster, a nod to his relocation post the events of season 4. Additionally, a snapshot of Wolfhard with Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) has excited fans, fueling speculation about the future of their characters’ relationship.
The photos also reveal glimpses of potential new sets and the return of familiar elements, such as the group’s iconic bikes. These details, while seemingly minor, are igniting discussions and predictions about the upcoming season’s direction and themes.
Among the various clues, a standout is the inclusion of a bumper sticker indicating the arrival of Halley’s Comet, visible in April 1986 – just weeks after the timeline of the previous season. This subtle hint suggests that the new season might pick up immediately after the events of season four.
The comet, historically regarded as an omen, adds a layer of foreboding, hinting at potential calamities that could befall the characters, particularly the Hellfire Club, as suggested by other set photos.
As fans dissect these early glimpses, there’s a mix of excitement and melancholy, knowing that this season marks the end of ‘Stranger Things.’ Theories abound, ranging from plausible plot developments to more outlandish speculations, including the possibility of the narrative returning to the events of the first season.
