Hopefully they'll recast any of the actors that look too old to play their part when filming does start.

Or a massive time jump between seasons?

Last season was 1986. Hopefully, next season is 1989 so we get to see them go see Batman in theaters. Imagine them having Batdance play on the show.

The more I think about your suggestion, the more I like it.

"This town needs an enema" would definitely be appropriate for Hawkins.

As long as they're taking between seasons and as fast as the kids are aging, they'll be camped out in a front a theater to buy tickets to The Phantom Menace in season five.

Finally got tired of waiting for Netflix to get off their asses and do something about releasing these on physical media, bought the "professionally done" bootleg seasons 3 & 4 on DVD. If Netflix can't get it done, there are people who will. They don't match what I already own but at least we'll have them to watch. I just hope the quality is good enough.

Bootleg DVD? I'm still down with physical media but I'll bite the bullet for a month to watch Stranger Things in 4k over watching a 20 year old format. That's like choosing to listen to an 8-track when you have access to a CD.

Given audio cassettes are still around, I am surprised the makers of this show haven't ever made gimmicky VHS releases of past seasons.

2/3 of my video collection are DVDs so I don't have a problem with that. I would've preferred blu-ray but it's not likely going to happen so I did the best I could. I wanted these in my collection but Netflix wasn't cooperating. I don't stream, I'm just not interested in streaming. With over 1400 videos in my collection, why would I want to rent/stream? That's where a lot of these companies are missing out on more money by catering to everyone, not just the people who stream.

They might as well go all in and put it out on Beta.

No. That's cool (or "bitchin'", as Eleven would say). I knew Target had exclusive releases of the first two season on 4K but, as there are no Target stores in PR, I never bothered to look them up.

Season 5 production has officially begun!

Main cast (+Duffer brothers) photo. Linda Hamilton is in the back. Is that "Erica" in front of her?!

Just saw a report from Jeff Sneider and he said that Frank Darabont will apparently be directing at least 2 episodes of the final season. Shawn Levy will direct 1 and The Duffer Bros will direct likely direct the rest.

Darabont hasn't done anything in over a decade. He was in director's purgatory due to his Walking Dead lawsuit.

Apparently Joe Keery ("Steve") is also a musical artist under the stage name "Djo" and one of his songs has become a hit recently after going viral on tiktok.

Also, just saw this posted elsewhere. Supposedly the first 6 episode titles for Season 5, though not from an official source yet. I'll spoiler it just in case.
Spoiler:






The second one is interesting.

Yeah, hes been doing that for a few odd years. I think his second album (at least in that span) is coming out.
