Netflix announces Stranger Things 5 will further extend episode lengths to upwards of 3 hours

THE LONGER THE BETTER: The reception for the fourth season of the hit Netflix show, Stranger Things, has been overwhelmingly positive so far. However, one thing fans have been discussing online is the runtime of each episode, with each one clocking in at over an hour. Series creators, The Duffer Brothers, decided that this wasn't quite enough, so they announced that the average runtime per episode will be increased to 2.5 hours next season. They stated "fans just can't get enough of the show, so we've decided to make 8 feature-length films for season five."
