Stranger Things Season 5 Lands First Major Director With The Perfect Horror & Action Experience


Stranger Things has enlisted the services of a new director who is well-versed in blending action and horror. The highly anticipated fifth season of the popular sci-fi series on Netflix has been delayed due to the ongoing writers strike, as the writers guild has temporarily halted production in their fight for fair compensation. Despite the setback, progress has been made on the upcoming season, including the exciting news that Terminator star Linda Hamilton will be joining the cast. This final season will serve as the flagship series’ grand finale.

Earlier today, Netflix Tudum announced the appointment of director Dan Trachtenberg for the upcoming fifth season of Stranger Things.

Trachtenberg, known for his work on the acclaimed film 10 Cloverfield Lane and the recent Predator prequel Prey, brings a wealth of experience in blending action and horror. His television credits include popular series such as The Boys, Black Mirror, and The Lost Symbol. Trachtenberg is set to direct one episode in the upcoming season, which will consist of a total of eight episodes.

Stranger Things Takes Directors Seriously

Despite being relatively new to the Hollywood scene, Trachtenberg has already shown his ability to make a seamless blend of action and horror, making him a perfect fit for the genre-bending series as it approaches its final season. He has also demonstrated his skill in taking on established franchises and leaving his own mark on iconic stories. This comes as no surprise, as Stranger Things has a history of working with talented directors.

In most cases, episodes of the series have been directed by the show’s creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, collectively known as The Duffer Brothers. However, executive producer Shawn Levy has directed 10 episodes of the show out of a total of 34. Levy is a successful filmmaker in his own right, having helmed comedies like The Pink Panther and Night at the Museum, as well as collaborating with Ryan Reynolds on recent projects such as Free Guy and The Adam Project.

Stranger Things‘ other directors, who typically only helm one or two episodes apiece, also tend to bring strong credentials along with them. The roster includes Finding Dory and Wall-E‘s Andrew Stanton, Westworld and The Wheel of Time‘s Uta Briesewitz, and Predators‘ Nimród Antal. Trachtenberg will fit in very well with this crew even though he is currently only set for a single episode.
