Millie Bobby Brown Hints At Return Of A Favorite Stranger Things Character

By Douglas Helm | Published

ET recently asked Millie Bobby Brown if she thought there was a possibility that fan-favorite character Eddie Munson could be brought back for the final season of Stranger Things. Brown simply replied, “I mean, it’s a good fan theory.” Of course, Brown didn’t give us much to go by, but she definitely didn’t say no.

Fans have been going wild with theories for the upcoming fifth and final season of Stranger Things, which Millie Bobby Brown will be a massive part of. However, Brown implied that we’d pretty much have to ask the Duffer Brothers themselves about Eddie Munson’s return, as she admitted they don’t tell her much about the story to prevent spoilers from leaking. Whether or not Eddie Munson returns will have to continue to be a subject of theory, rather than a confirmed fact.

Eddie Munson went down fighting in the final episodes of Stranger Things Season 4, getting killed by Demobats after shredding to Metallica’s “Master of Puppets.” The running theory for Eddie Munson is that he’ll be resurrected in some way or another. Whether that’s as an enemy of Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven and the rest of the Hawkins crew or as someone who comes back for vengeance against Vecna.

The fourth season of Stranger Things was easily one of the biggest and most popular seasons yet. Along with the instantly likable Eddie Munson, portrayed by Joseph Quinn, the season also introduced us to the most fearsome villain yet in the form of Jamie Campbell Bower’s Vecna. The season also saw Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven get more of her backstory revealed while getting her powers back.

Eleven is definitely going to need those powers, as the parallel dimension of the Upside Down has fully leaked into the real world, which is sure to cause some major trouble in the final season of Stranger Things. Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly when we can expect to find out what happens in Stranger Things Season 5 as there isn’t an official release date yet. As for the returning cast, we can likely expect that Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Gaten Matarazzo, Sadie Sink, Joe Keery, Maya Hawke, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Brett Gelman, David Harbour, and Winona Ryder will all return.

While we wait for more Stranger Things, we’ll get to see Millie Bobby Brown reprise another franchise role for Netflix in Enola Holmes 2. Enola Holmes 2 follows Brown as the younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes, who takes on a missing girl case as her first job as a detective-for-hire. Enola Holmes 2 will also bring back Henry Cavill as Sherlock with the cast rounded out by Helena Bonham Carter, David Thewlis, Louis Partridge, Hannah Dodd, Adeel Akhtar, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, and more.

If you want to see Millie Bobby Brown in Enola Holmes 2, you can stream it when it hits Netflix this Friday. Until then, you can binge the fourth season of Stranger Things again to try and piece together more Eddie Munson theories. Make sure to stay tuned here and we’ll keep you updated on any news about the fifth season.
