Who is in the cast of Stranger Things Season 5?
Luckily for us, the majority of the main cast made it out of Season 4 alive, and were present in the final scene of the season.

This includes Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Noah Schnapp (Will), Priah Ferguson (Erica), Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), Maya Hawke (Robin), Joe Keery (Steve), David Harbour (Hopper), and Winona Ryder (Joyce).
We bid farewell to Eddie Munson (played by Joseph Quinn) in Episode 9, as he died a hero to save his friends and protect his town. The Duffer Brothers confirmed this character’s death to while appearing on the Happy Sad Confused podcast following the finale — yet, there’s two other character deaths from Volume 2 that are a bit more unclear.
Max became a victim of Vecna’s curse in the two-part finale, and was technically dead for a full minute before Eleven restarted her heart with her powers. The last we see of Max, she’s hospitalized and in a coma. Eleven tries to communicate with her by searching for her mind, but there is, tragically, no response.
While speaking to Entertainment Weekly following Volume 2‘s release, actress Sadie Sink (who plays Max) opened up about the agonizing scene of Max’s death and her character’s future in the show. “It really is just so sad,” Sadie said told EW. “When you’re putting yourself in that moment and then you’re with someone like Caleb, who I’ve known since I was very little, sometimes things can feel very real on that set. It was very emotional… It’s just so heartbreaking.”
