Stranger Things Season 5 is being highly anticipated. The Duffer Bros., the brilliant minds behind the show, has revealed some exciting details about what’s in store for the next season which is expected to release next year on Netflix.
Will Byers: The Star of Stranger Things Season 5
In an interview with Variety, Ross Duffer, one of the creators of the show, dropped a bombshell and revealed, “Will really takes centre stage again in [season] 5. This emotional arc for him is what we feel is going to hopefully tie the whole series together.”
Will’s Coming of Age
Ross Duffer also mentions that Stranger Things Season 5 will also delve into Will’s coming-of-age journey. He specifies that it is not just going to be about his sexuality but also about him coming into his own as a young man. Fans can surely anticipate a journey full of bittersweet moments. After all, it has not been easy with all those supernatural shenanigans. As Matt Duffer puts it, “We’re starting to see his coming of age, really, which has been challenging for a number of reasons; some of which are supernatural. But you’re starting to see him come into his own.”
The final episodes of Season 5 are also set to “circle back to Season 1.” Yep, that’s right, a full-circle narrative that will connect all the dots.
Will Byers plays a pivotal role in Stranger Things Season 5’s storyline.
Stranger Things Season 5: More Character Arcs
It’s not just Will, there is more. Steve, Nancy, and Jonathan’s characters are also set to have their own character arcs, resolving conflicts and exploring the complexities of their being. Quoting Ross Duffer, “The characters have maybe made steps…but that journey isn’t over yet.” This season might also explore more romantic relationships.
stranger things is not will byers’ show. stranger things is not jane “el” hopper’s show. stranger things is an ensemble show. there is not one single main character. it is both el and wills show just like how it’s also joyce’s show, nancy’s show, mikes show, etc.

Noah Schnapp Is All Set to Play Will Byers Again
Noah Schnapp seems delighted to yet again play Will Byers. Here is how he expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming season and what is ahead for his character in the show, “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.”
It seems that the new season of Stranger Things has a lot to do with Will. As the newer details keep coming, we are all excited to see the final chapter of this series, which has captivated people worldwide and has kept us intrigued.
