As Netflix prepares to release big-budget movies and fan-favorite television series this summer, possibly no other show has an anticipated return more than Stranger Things. Set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, the wild show from the Duffer Brothers has taken audiences on a rollercoaster ride for several seasons, resulting in some truly upside-down plot twists, major character deaths, and continued weird occurrences. The latest season, Stranger Things Season 4, is due to hit the subscription streaming platform on May 27, 2022, just in time for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. As audiences’ inch closer to seeing many of their favorite characters and actors return to the small screen, there has been some discussion about major characters dying in this newest season. Now, two of the stars of Strangers Things may have let the cat out of the bag when it comes to some possible upcoming deaths.

As reported by, Stranger Things Season 4 costars Millie Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp have confirmed that more deaths in the series will occur in this final installment. Speaking to TheWrap, Brown stated, “You need to start killing people off,” while Schnapp continued with, “One of us will die. Or more. The cast is so big.” This news comes as Netflix plans to release the final season of the hit series in two volumes, with Volume 1 debuting this week and Volume 2 set for its final run on July 1. No word yet on which characters will “kick the bucket” in the upcoming season, but based on Brown and Schnapp’s comments, it sounds like it might be one of the main characters that audiences have grown to love over the years.

Just as soon as it hit Netflix in 2016, the series produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen became an instant classic, with pop culture references and science fiction all rolled into one. Critics and audiences alike took to the new series, and the show’s main theme music composed by Michael Stein and Kyle Dixon of the band Survive was highly praised for its synthesizer sound reminiscent of the 1980s. As of this writing, Rotten Tomatoes lists the series with a 91% on its Tomatometer, while fans rate the show also with a 91% Audience Score. Stranger Things Season 4 specifically has been rated by critics on the Tomatometer at 88%, based on 16 Critic Ratings from those that have been lucky enough to screen the fourth season prior to its debut.

As Stranger Things premiers its Season 4, loyal fans of the series will begin to see the conclusion of one of their favorite shows several years in the making. Set in the 1980s with an almost Goonies-like feel, Stranger Things initially revolved around the disappearance of Will Byers, played by Schnapp. His friends, the local police chief (played by the beefy David Harbour), and Will’s mom (Winona Ryder in a role that helped resurrect her career) all attempt to find him as they battle with supernatural forces beyond their control. A throwback to the science fiction films of the 1980s, Stranger Things remains a popular show for Netflix as it enters its swan song era.
