Be warned, SPOILERS for Stranger Things Season 4 to follow.

The Duffer Brothers have revealed more details regarding the direction of Stranger Things Season 5, including the idea that the final outing for the Netflix show will answer questions about The Upside Down. Speaking with Collider, the siblings behind Stranger Things once again confirmed the setting for season 5, before stating that there will be plenty of reveals and questions answered regarding the mysterious dimension known as The Upside Down.

Stranger Things Season 4 has now revealed several intriguing things about The Upside Down, including that Vecna AKA Henry Creel AKA One has been behind the horrors and torment since the very beginning. It was Vecna who created the Mind-Flayer after being exiled to The Upside Down by a hugely powerful Eleven. Showing Vecna’s first few days in The Upside Down, which notably looks like a post-apocalyptic desert rather than a decaying version of Hawkins, there are still several talking points remaining about this alternate world.

The fifth and final season of Stranger Things will aspire to complete several arcs for many of the beloved characters from the large ensemble cast. Matt Duffer has since revealed that Stranger Things Season 5 will center on Will Byers, finally giving the character something important to do. “Will’s going to be a big part and focus, is really all I can say of Season 5, in his journey,” he said. “We’re starting to see his coming of age, really. Which has been challenging for a number of reasons, some of which are supernatural. But you’re starting to see him come into his own.”

The Duffer Brothers continued adding, “I think you’ll see that with a couple of the character arcs, not just with Will. But also with Steve and Nancy, and her relationship with Jonathan where things are not fully resolved. The characters have maybe made steps, like in the case of Will, but that journey isn’t over yet. All of that is going to play a huge role as we try to wrap this thing up next season.”
