Stranger Things fans point out cast spoiler as Netflix announces season 5 has started filming

Stranger Things fans point out cast spoiler as Netflix announces season 5 has started filming

Netflix just announced shooting for the final season has begun, but it seems one spoiler might have already been let slip.

The cast of Stranger Things are back together filming the fifth and final season much to the excitement of fans.

Netflix revealed production for the penultimate instalment of the beloved series has begun - but it seems it might have unintentionally let a major spoiler slip.

In a post on X, the streaming platform shared a snap of the main cast members reading through the script for the highly anticipated final season alongside the Duffer brothers, Matt and Ross, who created the show.

The image was captioned: "THIS IS A CODE RED. Stranger Things 5 production has officially begun!"

And fans were delighted after seeing that the gang finally reuniting for filming - especially because there was quite a few cliffhangers in season four.

But while people were thrilled with the update on the Netflix hit series, it didn't cloud their abilities as super sleuths.

And it appears that the presence of one cast member may have given the game away about their character's storyline.

The cast shared a picture of them shooting season five.

Viewers will remember that the future of Sadie Sink's character, Max Mayfield, was left hanging in the balance at the end of the last season.

While wading through the fallout of the events of season three, she had to deal with her abusive stepbrother Billy (Dacre Montgomery) returning from being possessed before giving up his own life to save Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).

Max was weighed down by a lot of guilt due to the tumultuous series of unfortunate events and struggled with PTSD from all the weird goings on.

On top of all that, she became the target of Hawkins serial killer Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower).

A bit of a rollercoaster ride if I do say so myself.

Viewers were left on a cliffhanger about the fate of Sadie Sink's character Max.

And Netflix fans were left wondering whether Max had survived all the heartbreak and being hunted down by a murderer - which will all obviously be explained in the upcoming season.

One wrote: "Max is alive!"

Another added: "Max is alive thank GOD."


And a fourth wrote: "Oh my f**king god Sadie is there, Max is alive!"

During an interview on the Today show in January last year, Sadie kept tight lipped about the fate of her troubled character - but did reveal that she'd be joining the cast for season five.

She said: "We know that it’s happening and that it’s the last season, so it’s going to be emotional, I’m sure.

"Spoiler-free, just with the way my character ended in season 4, I have no idea what is going to happen. But I’ll be there."

The Duffer brothers had also previously revealed that they'd initially intended for Max to exit the show in the season four finale before having a change of plan.

While chatting with host Felicity Day on Stranger Things: Unlocked, they explained: "For a while that is what was going to happen.

"But we ended up in this… we wanted to end it with a little more of a question at the end of the season."

Seems like they made the right call!
