The Duffer Brothers are probably quite optimistic about the season 5 finale of Stranger Things, which will end up being much shorter than season 4. However, the series as a whole would be more enjoyable for fans, regardless of how drawn out it may be.
Stranger Things' final two seasons have been dropped by Netflix (while doing so on their own platform), but fans of the hit horror series still have one thing to look forward to: season 5. Stranger Things' penultimate, especially bloody season has set up a pretty big climax for the series, but the Duffer Brothers are willing to admit one thing: Season 5 will not be filled with the gigantic movie-length episodes that characterized season 4.

Big Red has to be breathing a sigh of relief that they will get a Squid Game season 2, at least for the time being.
Stranger Things season 5 isn't set to be released until 2024, although it's possible that the show will be a little slower to watch for fans, even if there are increasingly horrific and horrible things happening to the characters we've come to know.
