Maya Hawke gets candid about the many main characters Stranger Things has. Aside from Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and her friends, the show also features Hopper (David Harbour), Joyce (Winona Ryder), extended pals, and more. So, will a major death/s happen in Stranger Things Season 5?
Hawke joined Stranger Things Season 3 as a friend of Steve (Joe Keery) and eventually became part of the group. With the sizeable characters that the series has, will Stranger Things Season 5 end with them complete, or will someone meet its tragic demise?
The Sizeable Stranger Things Cast
The show's cast continuously grows each season. Despite that, the show's creators, the Duffer Brothers, seem to avoid killing off any major characters.
The common trend in the series is the death of the guest characters, who instantly become fan favorites like Eddie (Joseph Quinn).
Aside from that, ScreenRant noted the show also seems to be fond of faking out deaths, like Max's (Sadie Sink).
So, while taking a lie detector test for Vanity Fair, Hawke was frank about one of the series' common criticisms of characters' death.
Maya Hawke on Stranger Things' Deaths
Hawke was asked by her Do Revenge co-star Camila Mendes if she thought Eddie should have died in Stranger Things Season 4.
"I don't think he should have died, but I do think the show has too many characters," she said.
Following up on that question, she was then asked if there was anyone else she thought should have met their demise.
The 24-year-old star tried to avoid the question and opted to give a much-safer answer.
"Yes, I think more people should have died," she continued.
Maya Hawke Seem to Echo Millie Bobby Brown's Earlier Comments
Hawke's latest comments seem to echo Brown's earlier sentiments about having too many cast members in one show.
She even called the Duffer Brothers "two sensitive Sallies" for being reluctant to kill off anyone.
This even got a response from the creators themselves, saying they had already explored all options in the writing room and killing someone like Mike (Finn Wolfhard) would be depressing, per Business Insider.
They also stressed to Brown that the series was set in Hawkins and not Westeros when the latter suggested they should be like Game of Thrones.
