Millie Bobby Brown expressed her concern that her role in the suspenseful sequel Enola Holmes 2 will have an impact on her performance in season 5 of Stranger Things. Brown began acting in 2013, but her breakthrough part didn’t come until she played Eleven in the first season of Netflix’s Stranger Things in 2016. The character, a telekinetic who escaped from a mysterious underground laboratory, was crucial in aiding in the investigation into Will Byers’ disappearance. Throughout the show, which just debuted season 4 earlier this year, she has continued to develop as she integrates into the community of Hawkins, Indiana.
Enola Holmes, Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister who is also a skilled crime-solver, is Brown’s second notable Netflix role. The young adult novel series of the same name by Nancy Springer inspired the character’s debut appearance in the 2020 film Enola Holmes. The girl in that movie, who frequently breaks the fourth wall and addresses the camera directly, solved her mother’s abduction, which inspired her to start her detective agency in the sequel, which debuted on November 4.
According to USA Today, during a Q&A session at the Enola Holmes 2 premiere, Brown recently revealed a worry about shooting Stranger Things season 5. She compared playing Enola Holmes to “vlogging on YouTube” due to her continual eye contact with the camera, and she is concerned that this bad habit will follow her to the Stranger Things set, where there is no fourth wall breaching. She stated that it has become “this deep-rooted terror” and that she even had a nightmare about it. Below is her complete quote:
Season 5 of Stranger Things: Everything We Know
Given that Stranger Things season, 5 will begin production in 2023, Brown won’t have much time to break the habit. Even though the precise release date has not been set, it is most likely to occur in 2024. While the world will be maintained with a spinoff presently in development and will cover a different cast of characters, Season 5 will also serve as the series’ last season.
There are a few things that are known about what is coming up, however, the Stranger Things plot is being kept securely under wraps. After Eleven and Hopper’s emotional reunion at the end of season 4, the core cast is finally back together, allowing them to work as a team to take on the enemy Vecna, who is still hiding in the shadows. To convey a tale with the ensemble that the audience has grown to love, including (and possibly especially) Brown’s Eleven, the upcoming season will hold off on adding many new characters.
