So, Stranger Things finally returned with its long-awaited fifth season. And I’m sure many fans waiting for this eagerly anticipated release were not disappointed. But one thing about Stranger Things Season 5 left me underwhelmed: the plot. Don’t get me wrong – Stranger Things is still Stranger Things and has all the elements we know and love (cast included). The problem lies in how predictable the storyline became as soon as we passed episode 1 or 2.
The Stranger Things season five plot quickly became very predictable, which is a shame because the previous four seasons were so inventive and well-thought-out. The story became familiar to those who have been Stranger Things fans for years and felt like it was just going through the motions we’ve seen before. For instance, in Stranger Things Season Five, the characters did things they’d done before.
Stranger things is an American science fiction-horror web television series created and produced by the duffer brothers. Set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, in 1984–85, the first season focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy amid supernatural events occurring around the town, including the appearance of a girl with psychokinetic abilities who helps the missing child’s friends in their search.
This was not what I expected from Stranger Things Season Five, which disappointed me. Stranger Things Season Five was not as interesting, and there were no new plotlines to follow that I found intriguing.
The Stranger Things cast is the same as last season, but it felt like they weren’t pushing themselves anymore and were going through the motions of what we saw in previous seasons.
The story of Will Byers continues as he struggles with his relationship with Bob. The group must rescue him from an underground city and save themselves. A girl with psychic abilities who can help them in their search also emerges. Meanwhile, there are new supernatural events in Hawkins.
