The makers of Stranger Things pushed the boundaries of television episode lengths in season 4 as it featured two episodes clocking in at approximately 90 minutes each, and a season finale rivaling the duration of a full-blown Hollywood blockbuster, spanning nearly two and a half hours. Now if anyone is thinking that the final season of the Netflix series will dial things down, they are in for a surprise. In an interview with Total Film magazine, Shawn Levy, the executive producer and director of "Stranger Things," revealed that Season 5 will be even bigger.
“There’s no way to be contiguous with Season 4, and not, frankly, expand scale and depth,” Levy said. “It’s major, major, cinematic storytelling that happens to be called a TV series. ‘Stranger Things 5’ is as big as any of the biggest movies that we see.”
