Although Finn Wolfhard feels a sixth season of the popular Netflix series Stranger Things would be insane, he admits that he is not ready for it to finish. The actor stated in a Uproxx interview that he was just like, "Damn, let's just go back and film now," when he finished filming Season 4, so he is really excited to start working on Season 5.

While the actor who portrays Mike Wheeler on the sci-fi program with a 1980s setting said he isn't prepared to quit Stranger Things, he just wants to help finish it off, but not in an "I want to be done with it" way. Wolfhard merely wants to know what transpires. While he is undoubtedly upset about it, the actor also realises that it is the necessary next chapter in everyone's life.

Two portions of the fourth season of Stranger Things were released on May 27 and July 1, 2022. The fifth season of Stranger Things, which will start filming this year, has started scripting.

If Stranger Things lasted longer than five seasons, in Wolfhard's opinion, that would be absurd. The actor believes the Duffer brothers came up with a superb conclusion in five. Even if they would do two, they weren't sure. The makers are therefore pleased that viewers are still present and interested. But yes, Wolfhard is enthusiastic. The scope of season four was enormous, but he believes he would like to see the fifth season draw more from the dynamics of season one and be somewhat more restrained while still being enormous. The actor is hoping that each character has a satisfying conclusion for the audience.

The fourth season of Stranger Things quickly passed the first three seasons as Netflix's most-watched English-language show. The show received 13 nominations for the 2022 Emmy Awards, and it took home five victories.

Wolfhard is currently promoting Jesse Eisenberg's When You Finish Saving the World, which had its world premiere at Sundance last year and is now showing in a few theatres.
