Stranger Things’ Gaten Matarazzo Talks New Season 5 Character Hopes

stranger things Star Gaten Matarazzo has spoken about his hopes for the fifth and final season of Netflix’s hit show.

While promoting his new Netflix animated film My Father’s Dragon with co-star Jacob Tremblay, the Dustin Henderson actor shared digital spy:

“Honestly, which I can only assume and hope with that last one, because that last one, season four, was absolutely crazy in so many ways, in what the characters had to do and what the show was actually about, and how much long it was, and how big a season was compared to the previous three.”

He continued: “So I can only imagine… It’s going to have to live up to what we’ve already done, and I’m excited to see what they’re doing. Who knows what they’re going to do? But I’m here for Whenever they call me back, I’m ready to go back.

The introduction of metalhead genius Eddie “The Freak” Munson (Joseph Quinn) was a highlight of season four, as was his friendship with Dustin, and Matarazzo hopes season five will see the introduction of some new faces as well.

“I always love working with new actors on this, and I love seeing how many new actors enjoy coming in and working on the show,” he shared. “Because it’s quite big… There are a lot of people and so a lot of people are scared when they start working on it.

“I remember when we had Maya [Hawke] join, and we had Joe Quinn join – I remember, Joe was petrified, but he just delivered something so wonderful. And I know if they have new characters, they’ll be what the show needs.

“And if they don’t, then that’s what the show needs. They know how to do it, and they know how to do it right. And so I’m excited to see what they’re doing.”
