With no release date or even a release window, Stranger Things Season 5 might be some time away, but that hasn’t stopped the Duffer brothers from teasing us with bits of information since the fourth season premiered on Netflix earlier this year.

They confirmed the episode count for the final season, while also comparing it to The Lord of the Rings in terms of scale and scope. They have also confirmed that they won’t be introducing any new characters, despite rumors that American rapper Megan Thee Stallion might be appearing.

Meanwhile, actress Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven in Stranger Things (2016), criticized the number of characters in Stranger Things Season 4, urging the Duffer brothers to start killing people off in Stranger Things Season 5.

These comments were echoed by Maya Hawke, who plays Robin Buckley in the show. However, while the fifth season is intended to be the last, the Duffer brothers have also confirmed that there’s a Stranger Things spin-off in the works, which will be very different to the mother show.

Now, we have even more information about Stranger Things Season 5, as the show’s creators have revealed the name of the first episode. As reported by Deadline, it was revealed on Stranger Things Day on November 6 that the title of Episode 1 will be “Chapter One: The Crawl”.

It was also revealed that the episode will be written by the Duffer brothers themselves. No other information about the episode was disclosed, and it begs to question what this episode title relates to. Whatever it means, knowing Hawkins and the Upside Down, it probably isn’t good.

As per the Netflix website, here’s the official synopsis for Stranger Things Season 4:

It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.
