Stranger Things Writers Respond To Editing Claims After Fans Convinced Moment Was Changed

The Stranger Things writers’ room has finally spoken out after some fans of the hit sci-fi show claimed that one scene in the first season had been changed years after its release.

Theories surrounding the smash hit series began to spread online claiming that a scene involving Jonathan Byers (Charlie Heaton) taking pictures of Nancy Wheeler (Natalia Dyer) were changed.

The scene in question shows Jonathan hiding in the bushes outside Steve Harrington’s (Joe Keery) home where Nancy is in the latter’s bedroom.

He stops taking pictures when she starts removing her clothes and he instead shifts his focus to Barb (Shannon Purser) who is dressed and sitting by the pool alone.

Some fans claim to remember Jonathan continuing to snap pictures of Nancy and they assumed the scene was tweaked to make Jonathan seem less creepy.

The fan theory has gone viral on TikTok where one person claimed in their video that the creators – Matt and Ross Duffer – appeared to ‘make Jonathan look less like a perv.’

Now the official Twitter account used by the Stranger Things writers has weighed in on the wild theory.

“PSA: no scenes from previous seasons have ever been cut or re-edited. And they never will be,” a tweet from the account said, putting the rumour to bed once and for all.

In other Stranger Things news, fans were overjoyed when Noah Schnapp confirmed that his character Will is gay and ‘loves’ Mike.

This is one fan theory that has proven to be correct when the 17-year-old actor made the incredible revelation about his beloved character’s sexuality in an interview with Variety.

He confirmed that it has been ‘hinted’ that Will is gay since the first season in 2016.

“Now it’s 100 percent 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."

We're officially shipping Will and Mike!
