According to the latest casting call, season 5 of Stranger Things is scheduled to commence filming on January 16, 2024. Fittings for the selected actors are set to begin on January 5, 2024. The filming locations are confirmed to be in Atlanta and the surrounding cities of Georgia.
The final season of Stranger Things has already been delayed due to the dual strikes by the writers and actors. After the strikes were resolved, the creators of the show started their work quickly and it was hoped that the filming would also commence soon. However, due to the upcoming holiday season, it was pushed to January 2024.
Stranger Things fans were also eagerly anticipating the final table read, a significant event featuring all the actors. However, the Duffer Brothers have announced that they will return to the sets after the holidays. This leaves fans speculating whether the table read has already taken place or if it is scheduled to occur after the holidays.
The filming for Stranger Things season 5 is scheduled to take place from January 2024 to September 2024. Considering the subsequent post-production processes, it is anticipated that the final season will be ready for release in late 2025.
