There is little doubt that people are already looking forward to Stranger Things Season 5. But could the series get yet another season after the next one? Finn Wolfhard says that the idea of Season 6 is "ridiculous" and completely unnecessary.

Finn Wolfhard has appeared in all seasons of Stranger Things where he plays Mike Wheeler so he clearly knows what will happen in Season 5. With that in mind, the Ghostbusters: Afterlife star told Uproxx pointed out that although he enjoys working on the series, he doesn't think it should continue beyond the fifth season.


"Not ready but I'm just really excited to start working on it because after I finished watching season four, I just was like, 'Damn, let's just go back and film now.' I just want to help finish it off, but not in a way of I want to be done with it," Wolfhard said. "It's just like I want to know what happens. I'm definitely sad about it, but also, I know that it's the next kind of chapter of everyone's life that needs to happen."

He continued, "Also, to me, if Stranger Things went on any longer than five, I would say it would be ridiculous. I think the Duffer brothers figured out, I would imagine, a perfect ending in five."


"We didn't even know if we'd do two. So, we're happy that people still are around and want to watch it. But yeah, I'm excited," Wolfhard added. "Four was huge in scale, but I think I'd like to see the fifth season draw back on more of the dynamics of season one, and sort of be a little more contained, but also still be gigantic. I hope we kind of get an ending for each character that's pretty satisfying for fans."

It's an exciting tease at Stranger Things Season 5 and a sound reason not to think about a sixth season. Needless to say, we can't wait to see how it will all end.

Stranger Things Season 5 will consist of eight episodes and filming is set to begin in May 2023.
