Stranger Things season 4 part 2 ended with a cliffhanger. Though Vecna may have been knocked down, the chances are high of his comeback. Moreover, Will, who was lost in the Upside Down in season one and had been possessed by Vecna’s Mind Flayer in season two, eventually confirms the villain is still very much alive as he can feel him. There are several questions that can be answered only when Stranger Things season 5 will be released.
However, one of the series’ lead stars, David Harbour teases the upcoming season. Harbour has not one, but two high-profile projects to keep under wraps. The actor hilariously promoted his roles in both highly anticipated Marvel’s Thunderbolts and Netflix’s Stranger Things at Disney’s D23 Expo. The actor also made sure to maintain a level of secrecy both franchises have become known.
Asked about what fans can expect from the upcoming fifth and final season of Stranger Things, Harbour jokes to Entertainment Tonight, “Here’s the storyline: so it starts with the death of…” The actor added, “Ah, no. You know, I mean, I know a little bit about where it’s headed and it’s really exciting, but you’ll see it in another 15 years when it’s able to be released when we’ve shot it.”
As for Thunderbolts, Harbour praises Marvel’s casting choices, which also includes the returns of Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine and Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, with Harbour as Red Guardian, Wyatt Russell as John Walker, Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, Olga Kurylenko as Taskmaster, and Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier. Jake Schreier will direct the upcoming project, which is currently in pre-production.
Harbour says to the outlet, “There’s a lot of really exciting work happening on this movie.” The Stranger Things star continues, “I also think it’s a unique MCU movie in the sense that you’ve got a bunch of misfits and outcasts and losers and people who don’t really live up to the super in superhero. And also all of us are such cool, interesting performers, I think audiences have some complicated feelings about a lot of us, and I think that’s a terrific thing going in.”
