Stranger Things season 5 is one of the most anticipated releases on Netflix at the moment. It looks like fans will have to wait a little longer, though, as the Writers Guild strike will delay the shows' finale for an uncertain amount of time.

Stranger Things Season 5 Halts Production Amid Writers Strike

Stranger Things has been a huge success for Netflix, leading to the show getting green lit for a total of 5 seasons, as well as a spin-off series.

Sadly, the finale for the popular science-fiction horror series will be delayed for an uncertain amount of time due to the strike of the Writers Guild of America.

On May 6, the creators of Stranger Things explained the situation on Twitter, detailing how "writing does not stop when filming begins", stating that "it is not possible during this strike".

This means that the production for Stranger Things season 5 is currently on hold and will only continue, once "a fair deal is reached".

What this means for the release date of the popular franchise is not totally clear. All we know is that fans will have to wait even longer for the highly anticipated continuation.
