Stranger Things season 5 fan trailers imagine Eleven’s final battle against Vecna. After a three-year hiatus, Stranger Things season 4 returned in dramatic and was released in two parts to record-breaking viewership on Netflix. The latest season is split between several different plotlines which all converge as the main characters return to Hawkins to win a momentary victory against Vecna, the latest threat from the Upside Down with ties to Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven. The Stranger Things season 4 finale, which saw Hawkins being infiltrated by the Upside Down, set the stage for an epic season 5 and a final face-off between Eleven and Vecna.
Fan-made trailers recently created and shared by Screen Culture imagine Eleven’s showdown with Vecna. Using footage from past seasons of Stranger Things and occasionally It, the fan-made “First Look Trailer” imagines more of an overall concept for Stranger Things season 5, while the “First Trailer” focuses more on the conflict between Eleven and Vecna.

Everything We Know About Stranger Things Season 5
The Duffer Brothers have already revealed a lot about Stranger Things season 5, which will be the final season of the hit Netflix series. The Stranger Things creators had a five-season story arc in mind, as revealed by their open letter to fans. Stranger Things season 5 will begin with a time-jump, according to Ross Duffer, partially to help account for the rapidly aging cast. Despite many of the characters being high school age, a few of the show’s actors, such as Joe Keery, are now over 30 years of age.
Most of the Stranger Things cast is also expected back for the final season, including Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, David Harbour, Winona Ryder, Maya Hawke, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, and many more. Despite being in a coma at the end of season 4, Sadie Sink’s Max is alive and expected back. Sadly, the same can’t be said for Joseph Quinn’s fan-favorite Eddie Munson who received a heroic death. Jamie Campbell Bower, who received critical acclaim for his portrayal of Vecna, is also expected back as the final season explores more of the Upside Down than ever before.
While anticipation is sky-high for Stranger Things season 5, audiences will have to be patient as they wait for the final season. Production of the super-sized Stranger Things season 4 took three years and while the upcoming season won’t be as affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, it will likely be similar in scale and scope, and thus, equally imposing in terms of shooting and post-production requirements. In all likelihood, Stranger Things season 5 won’t hit Netflix until summer 2024.
