As expected, Weird stuff season 4, volume 2 explored more about the previous reveal that Vecna ​​was number one, and it showed how the villain was able to make the Upside Down his own. In a way, Vecna ​​(Henry) Weird stuffvillain since Season 1, when he created the Mind-Flayer. As such, it became easy to predict that Vecna ​​was setting up to Weird stuff‘ final boss, and so he couldn’t be defeated at the end of Weird stuff season 4. This proved correct at the end of part 2, as Vecna ​​is not only alive but also on a mission to end the world.

Yes, Weird stuff season 5 will be the last. In February 2022, earlier Weird stuff Season 4 Volume 1 has been canceled, the show’s creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, revealed in an open letter that: Weird stuff would end with season 5. The Duffer brothers pointed out that the plan had always been for it Weird stuff last until “four or five seasons”, and the first option was not possible because season 4 would get too full. That explanation adds to how long Weird stuff Season 4 was the last two episodes, with “The Piggyback” lasting almost two and a half hours. Can’t say how many episodes yet Weird stuff season 5 will have or when will Weird stuff season 5 premiere, but the show’s next season is indeed its last. Despite Weird stuff as Netflix’s flagship for the past six years, the show is almost done with the story it set out to tell. Not only did the story threaten to become too repetitive and unsolved for the mysteries of Hawkins and the Upside Down, but Weird stuff season 4 is said to be one of the most comprehensive television seasons ever produced – with a reported budget of $30 million per episode.

In the same open letter that announced Weird stuff season 5 will be the last, the Duffer brothers also point out possible Weird stuff spin-offs, as they said “There are many more exciting stories to tell in the world of Stranger Things.” The makers later confirmed that they indeed have a Weird stuff spin-off concurrent with season 5. However, the duo emphasized that the planned spin-off is: “will be different from what everyone expects, including Netflix.” Strangely enough, it seems that the only person who knows what exactly the… Weird stuff spin-off will be like Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike in Weird stuffand that’s because the actor “Well guessed what it would be about.”

Not many shows get to a happy ending, so it’s good that the Duffer brothers have plans for Weird stuff to end up on season 5 for a while now. Fortunately, the public may not have to say goodbye to that world for too long, since that one spin-off is at least still in its infancy. It remains to be seen how Weird stuff season 5 will wrap up the story of Elf and her boyfriend and whether it will set up other TV shows.
