‘Stranger Things’ Star Wants More Characters To Die In Netflix Series

Is it too safe?

Will Byers Noah Schnapp Stranger Things Season 5

It seems fans aren’t the only ones who want Stranger Things to take a darker turn! Dustin actor Gaten Matarazzo says he wants the Netflix series to kill off more characters.

Stranger Things has always been criticized for how lightly it handles death. Usually they introduce one new character a season to kill off (RIP Alexi) with any other lethal situations resulting in fake-outs. It seems even the cast is fed up with how safe the Netflix series has been, with Gaten Matarazzo calling for higher stakes as the show enters its final season.

“It might sound messed up, but we should kill more people,” Matarazzo explained at Megacon in Orlando. “This show would be so much better if the stakes were much higher, like at any moment, any of these kids can kick it. I feel like we’re all too safe.”

With Netflix’s biggest show finally coming to an end, it’s possible the Stranger Things creators use the opportunity to heighten the stakes. However, given Gaten Matarazzo has likely read all the scripts for the final season, this could be a sign of a rather safe conclusion to the series. Though given the show has only recently started filming, anything can happen between now and its release!

Stranger Things are coming to Hawkins…
