Stranger Things, a popular Netflix series, swept the globe into the Upside Down in 2016, and each subsequent season has surpassed the previous one in popularity. When Will Byers, played by Noah Schnapp, inexplicably disappeared in Season 1, he served as the impetus for Matt and Ross Duffer’s ’80s-focused sci-fi. Now that Season 5 the concluding chapter will be much heavier, Schnapp predicts the show will finish with Will as well.
The core group of friends keeps the tale grounded and retains the show’s heart, despite the fact that the sci-fi show is well known for its unusual creatures that terrorise the made-up town of Hawkins, Indiana. We could rely on Will, Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) to save the day even while portals to other realms were tearing away the structure of Earth. More characters were introduced as the seasons progressed, such as Max Mayfield played by Sadie Sink and Robin by Maya Hawke. By Season 4, Will was still timid and troubled by his association with the Mind Flayer in the Upside Down.
Like in real life, the gang started to disintegrate. By the time they reached high school, it seemed as though Will’s narrative had been forgotten due to females, school, and the distance between California and Indiana. Additionally, the revelations regarding Will’s sexual orientation in Season 4 further distanced him from his closest friends. He was feeling lost, and so were we. Fans started to worry that the Duffer Brothers had abandoned poor Will, but Schnapp stated in an interview with Forbes that Season 5 will come full circle, saying, “I can just tell you that I’m very very excited for what’s to come. I think they did a great job with Will’s character this season, and beautifully addressed everything they needed to. The way they closed the show is just perfect the story started with Will, and it’ll end with Will.”
Without a sure, Schnapp’s personality will play a significant role in how everything turns out. Will has maintained some sort of psychic connection with the creatures that inhabit the Upside Down ever since he vanished there. Will is having the heeby-jeebies in the Season 4 finale as everyone is enjoying themselves, which suggests that not everything is as it seems. Fans can only hope for the best as the Hawkins group faces off against Vecna’s (Jamie Campbell Bower) evil army thanks to his senses and Eleven’s superpowers.
