The first episode of Stranger Things season five has been given a name
Netflix has confirmed that the first episode of Stranger Things’ fifth and final season is titled “Chapter One: The Crawl” to cap off Stranger Things Day 2022.
The title was revealed on what appears to be the first episode’s screenplay, which will be written by The Duffer Brothers, the Stranger Things creators, and Netflix announced the announcement on Twitter.
I’m thrilled to announce the title of the Stranger Things 5 opening episode to cap off #StrangerThingsDay.

No other information was provided about this episode or Season 5 as a whole, and there is still no word on when the final season will be available on Netflix.
The Duffer Brothers have previously revealed that Season 5 will probably be shorter than Season 4, and that the finale of the entire series very well may be “Return of the King-ish.”
In addition to the title announcement, Stranger Things Day held further surprises, such as the information that Vecna will be playable in Stranger Things VR and that you can “enact revenge on Eleven and Hawkins” when it launches in the winter of 2023.
