The Duffer Brothers, creators of the popular Netflix series, have given various details about the upcoming season of Stranger Things is the fifth and final as fans eagerly anticipate it.
Maya Hawke, a star of Stranger Things, discusses whether Eddie Munson might return for season 5. Early on in Stranger Things season 4, Joseph Quinn’s starling character Eddie Munson won over the audience’s affection. However, in the climactic episode, he made history with his act of selflessness set to the sounds of Metallica’s “Master of Puppets.”
Stranger Things season 5 is still a ways off, so there’s plenty of time for things to change. But it’s worth noting that the show’s creators, the Duffer brothers, have said that they’re open to the idea of bringing Eddie back.
Sadly, Munson would die shortly after giving his best guitar performance, having been killed while battling Vecna. The Duffer Brothers, the show’s creators, have said that Eddie’s death will be permanent and that the character is dead, even if death doesn’t always stick in shows like Stranger Things. However, viewers remain hopeful that Eddie will return for Stranger Things season 5 in some capacity.
The Duffer brothers have also addressed the possible return of Eddie in the final season. Although his character was killed off in season 4, they say that “anything is possible” when it comes to Stranger Things and that they’re not ruling out the possibility of Eddie making a comeback in some capacity.
On the other hand, there is an argument that constantly bringing back dead characters is not a good idea for a show like Stranger Things. This seems to be the opinion of Robin actor Hawke, who told NME that though she gets why fans love Munson, she doesn’t necessarily want the character to come back to life.
“I totally sympathize with fans who want to see more of him. … I feel like we can’t keep killing people and bringing them back to life – the same fans would be so annoyed! But I would love them to find a way to have Eddie’s ghost in the mix, just because Joe Quinn is such an awesome guy. He’s so much fun to have on set and such a great actor.”
Wit Bobby Brown recently made a similar point when she criticized Stranger Things for not killing off any main characters, calling the Duffer Brothers “sensitive Sallies” for their unwillingness to embrace Game of Thrones levels of death. Of course, Stranger Things’ stakes would indeed seem higher if more characters died and their deaths actually stuck. But it’s also true that fans would be outraged if their favorites kept being killed off.
Quinn’s “Eddie returns as a ghost” idea is not new; he previously proposed that Eddie return in the supernatural form to communicate with Dustin in Stranger Things season 5. The idea of Eddie Being a Ghost is not so dense, given the show’s strong supernatural element. Fans have also proposed that Vecna himself could resurrect Eddie as a minion, though this might not be well-received by fans who want good Eddie in Stranger Things season 5.
Its appears that we have seen the last of Eddie Munson in season 4 but what can Duffer Brothers are upto we never know , However the fan base of Eddie Munson is growing rapidly and his return in season 5 could be best part as in season 4 his hit Metallica solo performance was.
with all of this in mind, fans are eagerly awaiting Stranger Things season 5, which is shaping to be an emotional and eventful finale for the beloved show.
