According to the creators of Stranger Things, the Duffer brothers, Will Byers will finally get the spotlight he deserves in Season 5. They have said that the upcoming season will prioritize Will’s emotional journey and coming-of-age as a young man.
Will has been a fan-favorite character since the beginning of the show, but he has often been overshadowed by other characters, such as Eleven and Mike. In Season 4, Will’s story took a backseat to the larger conflict with Vecna, but the Duffers have promised that Season 5 will be different.
In an interview with Variety, the Duffers said that Will’s story in Season 5 will be “a lot about coming-of-age and self-acceptance.” They also said that they will explore Will’s sexuality in more depth.
This is good news for fans of Will Byers, who have been waiting for his story to be told. It will be interesting to see how Will’s character develops in Season 5 and how he comes to terms with his sexuality.
In addition to Will, the Duffers have also said that Season 5 will focus on the other main characters, such as Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Max, and Hopper. They have also said that the season will be “bigger and darker” than the previous seasons.
Stranger Things Season 5 is scheduled to premiere in 2024.
