next stable Debian release (aka stretch) will ship only PHP 7.0. In
fact, there are no plans to ship more than one PHP release in any future
Debian releases.

The PHP 5.x will be supported in external repositories. There's the
repository https://packages.sury.org/php/ I am maintaining right now and
when Debian has (if ever) official personal/project repositories, it
will be moved and actively maintained there.
