One of the cast from Stranger Things has opened up about the show beginning filming on the latest, and last, season.

The show has captured audiences on Netflix with its mystery and terrifying world, with many people being drawn to the themes reminiscent of small town mystery films from the 1980s.

Now, the show has been renewed for its fifth and final season since it first aired back in 2016.

However, the latest season of the show was one of many which had production interrupted by the WGA and then SAG-AFTRA strikes.

Stranger Things was among many shows which were put on pause while writers and actors undertook a prolonged strike over pay and conditions, as well as concerns over the encroachment of AI into their industries.

With both the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes now over, Stranger Things can resume production.

And actor David Harbour has now teased that shooting on the final season is set to be up and running within a few days.

Speaking about the show to Variety, and his character as the grumpy police officer Jim Hopper, he said: "I just love that show. And I love that character so much. And I think it's the last season.

He added: "I'm looking forward to just diving in with my whole heart into this guy that certainly career wise has made a huge difference in my life, but personally has been the character in film and TV that I've loved the most, like that I've fallen in love with."

He continued: "I'm excited to give him the finale that I've wanted for him since we started. I just love it so much. I just can't wait to pour my heart into it.

"There's all this drive and all this passion to do it and we have a while to shoot and to edit.

"But we're going to work as hard and as fast as we possibly can to get it to people because I know they love the show as much as we do.

"And I can't wait for them to see what's up next. It's really exciting stuff. The scripts are great."

And there has already been a glimpse at the scripts as well, with a tiny passage from one being teased online, per the Radio Times.

So what does the final season hold? Well, it doesn't look great for our characters.

The opening reads: "Darkness. The sound of cold wind. Groaning trees. And.... a child's voice. Singing a familiar song."
