As Stranger Things Day Approaches, Executive Producer Clarifies How Final Season Will Handle Younger Stars Aging


Stranger Things fans have already been waiting more than a year after the Season 4 finale to find out what’s next, and that wait is unlikely to end any time soon. Netflix’s massive hit has been affected by the WGA strike and SAG-AFTRA strike. While there’s no confirmation of when Season 5 might arrive, it’s safe to say at this point that the young actors are going to look a lot older. Director and executive producer Shawn Levy previously weighed in on fan concerns about the stars aging; now, just days from Stranger Things Day, he has clarified what exactly he meant, and fans may feel better after what he shared.

Back in October, Shawn Levy commented on the younger cast members growing up and said that the Stranger Things team is going to “use all the tools available to us” to help with the passage of time for the actors for the fifth and final season. He specifically mentioned costumes, wigs, and makeup being used to make cast members look younger, but some fans took his comments to mean that the show might digitally de-age the stars. Speaking with Deadline, Levy said “No” to the question of whether AI could be used on them, and continued:

I kind of was surprised that one sentence I said around this topic traveled so widely. The bottom line is, we know what we’re doing on this show. Our cast is brilliant. And these characters that the Duffers have created are so vivid. I’m not worried about everyone suiting back up and bringing them to life.
