The Duffer Brothers Confirm ‘Stranger Things’ Season 5 Will Have Shorter Episodes

Many fans observed that the recently released fourth season of Stranger Things had notably long episodes. The last two episodes, in particular, were exceptionally lengthy, with durations of 90 minutes and two and a half hours, respectively. In a recent interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the show’s creators, the Duffer Brothers, assured fans that they will not repeat the marathon episode lengths for the upcoming fifth and final season. However, they did hint at the possibility of having a single extended episode.

Matt Duffer stated, “We’re more likely to do what we did here, which is to just have a two and a half hour episode.” He also mentioned that the final season’s storyline will be swift-paced, although the exact speed is yet to be determined. “Characters will already be in action, they will have clear goals and motivations, which will likely fill up a significant amount of time and give this season a distinct feel,” Matt added.

Regarding the conclusion of the series, Matt suggested, “I’m sure the wrap-up will be a lot longer. It’s going to be Return of the King-ish with, like, eight endings.”

Explaining the reason behind the length of season 4, Matt shared, “The only reason we don’t expect to be as long is because typically — or this season, if you look at it, it’s almost a two-hour ramp up before our kids really get drawn into a supernatural mystery. You get to know them, you get to see them in their lives, they’re struggling with adapting to high school and so forth. Steve’s trying to find a date, all of that,” he says.
