Stranger Things is a hit sci-fi horror series on Netflix that follows the adventures of a group of kids in Hawkins, Indiana, who encounter supernatural forces and government conspiracies. The series has four seasons so far, with the fourth season expected to premiere in 2022. The series has also spawned a huge fan base, who are eagerly waiting for any news or updates on the fifth and final season.
While Netflix has not officially confirmed the renewal of Stranger Things for season 5, the creators of the show, the Duffer Brothers, have hinted that they have a plan for the end of the series. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2017, they said, “We know where we want to go. We’re trying to figure out still how long it’ll take to get there, so we’ll see. It’s hard, like four seems short, five seems long. So I don’t know what to do.”
In the absence of any official announcement or teaser for season 5, some fans have taken matters into their own hands and created their own posters for the final season. These fan-made posters are based on their own theories and speculations about what could happen in season 5, and they often feature elements from the previous seasons or references to other pop culture works.
One of the most viral fan-made posters for season 5 was created by graphic designer Axel Almirón, who shared his work on Twitter and Instagram. The poster shows Will Byers, played by Noah Schnapp, facing off against Vecna, the main villain of season 4, who is a powerful entity from the Upside Down. The poster also has the tagline “Hawkins will fall”, suggesting that the town will be under attack by Vecna and his army of monsters. The poster was praised by Schnapp himself, who reposted it on his Instagram story and wrote, “This is so cool”.
Another fan-made poster for season 5 was also created by Axel Almirón, based on the closing scene of season 4. The poster shows Eleven, Hopper, Mike, Nancy, and the Byers family standing in a field behind Hopper’s cabin and looking at Hawkins as a dark cloud and red lightning overtake the town. The poster also features the Mind Flayer, the recurring antagonist of the series, who seems to be returning for the final showdown. The poster was liked by thousands of fans on Twitter and Instagram.
Other fan-made posters for season 5 have also been shared online by various artists and fans. Some of them focus on specific characters or relationships, such as Eleven and Hopper’s father-daughter bond, Steve and Robin’s friendship, or Joyce and Hopper’s romance. Some of them also incorporate themes or motifs from other movies or shows that have inspired Stranger Things, such as Star Wars, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, or The Terminator.
These fan-made posters for season 5 are not only impressive and creative, but also reflect the passion and enthusiasm of the fans for Stranger Things. They also generate excitement and curiosity for what could happen in the final season of the series. However, fans will have to wait until Netflix officially announces or releases any information or material for season 5. Until then, fans can enjoy rewatching the previous seasons or reading the books or comics based on Stranger Things.
