The ending of the fifth and final season of the Duffer Brothers’ Netflix science fiction TV show Stranger Things has been teased by one of its actors, David Harbour. The show will soon begin production.
The series had been waiting to be made for some time but was delayed owing to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Now that the unions have struck respective deals with the studios, Stranger Things season five can move ahead.
When appearing at the Motor City Comic Con, Harbour, who plays Jim Harbour in the show, was asked about the potential for a sixth season, although the fan asking did not know Netflix had announced season five would be the last.
In answering the question, though, Harbour revealed something about how season five will end. He said, “The beauty of it is there’s a real ending — things will end in a very real way.”
The actor mentioned the upcoming Stranger Things London play and how it came about from an episode in the main series, then noting, “[it’s] one complete story, and it’s going to end at the final episode of Season 5.”
During his Happy Sad Confused podcast appearance, Harbour also discussed season five of Stranger Things and expressed his admiration for the Duffer Brothers. “They’re terrific, as per usual,” the actor said. “They continue to outdo themselves, these currently-on-strike writers called the Duffer Brothers.”
Harbour added, “It’s a hell of an undertaking, too. I mean, the set pieces and the things in the scripts that we saw are bigger than anything we’ve done in the past.”
