Stranger Things star asks for season 5 change after common Netflix complaint about show

Stranger Things star asks for season 5 change after common Netflix complaint about show

It's the final season, why not go nuts?

A star of the Netflix show Stranger Things has echoed a common complaint among fans ahead of the fifth and final season.

Stranger Things is coming to an end with the final showdown between Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower) and the Hawkins crew on the horizon, though we shouldn't expect to see how it all ends for a while longer.

That hasn't stopped Gaten Matarazzo from voicing a complaint that is common among many Stranger Things fans, as his time on the show winds down and he completes the final season's worth of filming.

He's played Dustin ever since the beginning of the show and has given his view on a hot topic at a fan convention.

If you've been watching Stranger Things you might have thought this as well, as Matarazzo suggested the show's final season 'should kill more people'.

"This show would be so much better if the stakes were much higher, like at any moment, any of these kids can kick it," he said at the convention according to CBR, before going on to say he felt like the main cast of Stranger Things were 'all too safe'.

During the fourth season of the Netflix show there was some blood shed, but none of it from our core cast of characters.

Vecna might have torn Hawkins apart but those we've been with from the very beginning are still going strong.

Poor old Chrissy Cunningham (Grace Van Dien) got Vecna'd early on in the season while the much-loved newcomer Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) played his final show near the end, but we didn't lose our main cast members.

There were moments in season four where we thought one of the main cast was done for.

Max (Sadie Sink) got Vecna'd but was saved thanks to the music of Kate Bush while for a moment there we thought Steve (Joe Keery) was going to be torn to shreds by bat-things but he was able to survive with a little help from his friends.

Stranger Things creators The Duffer Brothers admitted that they had actually planned for Max to die in the season four finale, but instead we saw her in hospital after getting Vecna'd again.

Matarazzo isn't the only cast member who reckons Stranger Things could do with a bit of a culling as Noah Schnapp and Millie Bobby Brown agreed the writers 'need to start killing people off'.

Brown then said she wanted the Duffer Brothers to 'kill me off' and joked that they tried to kill off Hopper at the end of season three before bringing him back.

The show's creators have said that season five is going to be 'like season one on steroids' with all the action taking place in Hawkins.
