Stranger Things fans have reason to celebrate, as the Writers Guild strike is on the brink of resolution following a successful agreement reached with the studios.
Now that the writers strike is about to end, does it mean that filming for Stranger Things season 5 will start? Well, you have to remember that actors have also been on strike since mid-July. As long as there is no agreement between the AMPTP and SAG-AFTRA, the actors will remain on strike. But the deal with writers might help them find a solution as well. It's clear that, for various reasons, most production activities cannot resume until this strike concludes. However, with the latest advancements, there's reason to be optimistic that the actors' strike will resolve itself soon.
With the ending of writers strike it is likely that the Stranger Things writing team will commence their work on season 5. But the start of filming will take some time as these things don't happen overnight. The lengthy strike has resulted in unavoidable delays and setbacks which means that season 5 will not be out anytime soon.
