The fourth season of Stranger Things has been a sensation, sending Kate Bush to the top of the charts and getting the world talking about Vecna.
There's also been a lot of general speculation about the cast, and now Noah Schnapp has confirmed that Will Is Gay and 'loves' Mike. Watch the fan theory that Vecna took Will back in season one below:
The actor, 17, made the revelation in an interview with Variety where he acknowledged that it's been 'hinted' that Will is gay since season one.
He said of his character's sexuality: "It was always kind of there, but you never really knew, is it just him growing up slower than his friends?
"Now it's 100% clear that he is gay and he does love Mike. But before, it was a slow arc. I think it is done so beautifully, because it's so easy to make a character just like all of a sudden be gay."
The actor went on to explain that he's proud of Will because of how he has resonated with fans of the show.
"I was just in Paris and this, like, 40-year-old man came up to me and he was like, 'Wow, this Will character made me feel so good. And I related to it so much. That is exactly who I was when I was a kid'. That just made me so happy to hear."
However, while the show has its share of beloved characters, the fourth season did not see any major character deaths.
Now even the cast want the fifth and final season to kill some of them off.
In a resurfaced interview clip of Millie Bobby Brown and Schnapp, he told The Wrap: "They need to kill off some people. It's so big."
Brown agreed, saying: "I know. It’s way too big. Last night, we couldn't even take one group picture because there was like 50 of us. I was like, 'You need to start killing people off'."
"They just need to have one massacre scene," Schnapp concluded.
"That’s what I'm saying," Brown agreed. "The Duffer Brothers are two sensitive Sallys that don't want to kill anyone off. We need to be Game of Thrones. We need to have the mindset of Game of Thrones."
What do you think? Should there be a big massacre in season five? And if there is, do you think Will should be saved?
