The Duffer brothers took to Twitter and wrote, “Duffers here. Writing does not stop when filming begins. While we’re excited to start production with our amazing cast and crew, it is not possible during this strike. We hope a fair deal is reached soon so we can all get back to work. Until then -- over and out.”


Fans reaction:

Many fans have supported the ongoing writer’s strike as one person wrote, “a hearty f*ck you to anyone complaining about stranger things being delayed because of the writers strike! they are fighting for fair and liveable wages amidst AI and corporate greed threatening their livelihoods so i dont wanna hear it.”

Another wrote, “the fact that ppl's first reaction to the writer's strike was ‘oh nooo what abt stranger things 5’ is just wild. like srry but making sure the writers get paid fairly is more important than s5 being released.”
