Set photos from the filming of Stranger Things season 5 have been released, revealing that the show will return to Hawkins Hospital and potentially confirm a popular fan theory surrounding the character Max. In season 4, Max was targeted by the villain Vecna, and although she survived, she ended up comatose at Hawkins Hospital. The new photos hint that Max's story isn't over and that her condition could be exploited by Vecna. It is speculated that Vecna could possess Max, allowing him to continue his plans and posing a major threat to the show's heroes. This dark twist could create tension among the characters and make for an exciting final season. Stranger Things season 5 is currently in production and is set to premiere in 2025.
