Six Hints That Stranger Things Season 5 Will Jump in Time

A Crucial Detail From the Season 5 Set Pictures of Stranger Things Hints to a Two-Year Time Jump.The sixth image in Duffer's tweet shows a poster for Pink Floyd, and directly beneath it is what looks to be an edition of the 1988 book Planing, Shaping, and Slotting.

The fact that parts of the Upside Down spilled into Hawkins at the end of season 4, causing serious injuries to Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower), is another reason the Stranger Things season 5 time jump makes sense. First of all, Vecna's severe injuries imply that he will require a lengthy recuperation period before he can take another swing at Eleven 

David Harbour, who plays Hopper on Strangers Things, has also alluded to a time jump by saying that season 5 will begin "after" season 4 concludes and that by the time it does, "the world is a different place."

In remarks to TVLine, Stranger Things co-creator Ross Duffer implied that a time jump between seasons 4 and 5 would be required. It appears that Duffer's primary worry is that the actors are becoming too old for their parts and outgrowing their characters.
