What can the title reveal?
The Crawl certainly feels vaguer than the previous seasons’ episode titles and gives away very little in terms of the storyline. While the team is trying to keep all the cards about the plotline under wraps, the series is expected to go “100 miles an hour from the beginning” when it comes back with its final season.
Recently, Collider talked to Duffer Brothers about what the final season will entail and they learned that after Season 4 took audiences to locations around the globe like California and Russia, Season 5 will be spent within Hawkins and the town’s Upside Down mirror universe.
