Stranger Things fans who believe that the smash hit Netflix series will go on for more seasons should know that season five is definitely the end.

David Harbour has confirmed that the Duffer Brothers will bring the story to a complete close with the next instalment, despite speculation about future seasons.

During the press tour for his sinister Christmas film Violent Night, Harbour shared details about what fans can expect for the grand finale, which is set to be ‘spectacular’ and ‘emotional’.

Harbour said: “I'll just say that it is the end of our story, and I think you'll really feel that that it is the ending.

“I think people are always like, ‘Oh, maybe it is [the ending] maybe it's not. I think you'll really feel like the series has come to an end.”

Although fans will have to bid adieu to the flagship show, he speculated that there could be spin-offs in the future. That being said, the main storyline will be wrapped up in due course.

“I'm sure Netflix will do spin offs and do all sorts of things. But I don't know that they'll be able to do it with this particular thing,” he hypothesised. “Because I know that Duffers are really looking to hit a home run and finish the series and I think that'll be very satisfying to everybody.”

Season four ended with the gang’s failed attempt to kill Vecna, which ultimately lead to a portal into the Upside Down opening, causing seismic destruction in Hawkins.

The stakes have since been raised to astronomical heights for the final goodbye and Harbour believes it will be wholly satisfying.

“I think it'll have elements of sadness, elements of joy. But I think you'll feel very satisfied that this thing exists in 40-whatever episodes as a full complete piece of work with a beginning, a middle and an end.

“I haven't read scripts yet, but I mean, I'm sure I'm sure it's just going to be spectacular.”

While we still have no official word on the release date for the last ever season, The Hollywood Reporter claims it is expected to run for eight episodes.

Filming is expected to begin in 2023 and while a release date hasn’t been confirmed, it is likely to be released by 2024.

Harbour, along with Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Joe Keery and Sadie Sink are all expected to return.
