Sadie Sink does not want to say goodbye to Stranger Things. In season two of Stranger Things, the young actor made her debut as Max Mayfield, which served as her breakout role. Sink has developed over the past six years alongside the Stranger Things group as a whole, including Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp.
With Stranger Things season 5, the series will come to an end. It will undoubtedly be an emotional experience for the cast, who have spent their entire lives working on the show together. In a recent interview with Today, Sink described her upbringing on the Stranger Things set and what it will be like to leave the show behind. The Max actor predicts that season 5 will be “emotional,” “terrible,” “ugly,” “frightening,” and “sad,” among other things. Despite this, she finds the prospect of moving on to the next chapter to be “exciting.”
Sink admitted, “We know that it’s happening and that it’s the last season, so it’s going to be emotional I’m sure. Spoiler-free, just with the way my character ended in Season 4, I have no idea what is going to happen. But I’ll be there. It’s going to be awful. It’s going to be horrible. These kids, this entire cast and crew, it’s family. People say that all the time, but I genuinely mean it. And to think that we have to say goodbye to that security and knowing that we’re going to be seeing each other for another season? It’s scary and sad, but I think it’s exciting to kind of move on to the next chapter, I guess.”
What’s in store for Stranger Things Season 5?
Sink doesn’t yet know what Stranger Things has in store for her, but she and many other fans have a fair idea of what’s to come. According to the Duffer brothers, Netflix executives were in tears after hearing their pitch for Stranger Things season 5. This is a factor in why Sink and fans have already started preparing for a highly emotional finale. It will have at least 8 episodes, and given the size of season 5, it seems likely that the final episodes of Stranger Things will be rather extensive.
With the passing of Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn), a fan favourite, Stranger Things season 4 has already set the ground for a heartbreaking finale. Vecna also came dangerously close to killing Max, who finished season 4 in a coma and might still be under Vecna’s influence. The invasion of Hawkins by the Upside Down and Vecna’s impending return make Stranger Things season 5 likely to see the deaths of a few more adored characters. Nearly every member of the show’s enormous ensemble cast will be fair game as the end draws near.
