According to gamesradar sources, ‘Stranger Things Season 5’ may only have eight episodes. The show’s official writing team, @StrangerWriters, shared a behind-the-scenes video that seems to confirm its episode count.
The photo shows a whiteboard divided into a number of compartments, which are divided into eight episodes, with four compartments at the bottom of each episode. The Duffer Brothers had previously joked that they planned to shorten and simplify the episodes.
In addition, there is a weighted line in the middle of the fourth and fifth episodes in the photo, and some people think this may mean that ‘Stranger Things Season 5’ will be divided into two parts: the top and the bottom.
