Fans have anticipated for season 5 updates after the show’s fourth season, and the recent update is now out. The unveiled character list for season 5 includes Winona Ryder’s Joyce Byers, David Harbour’s Jim Hopper, and Eleven’s romantic interest Mike Wheeler, played by Finn Wolfhard. The show will also bring Natalia Dyer’s Nancy Wheeler and Charlie Heaton’s Jonathan Byers.


Of course, Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven is a definite cast for all seasons, and season 5 will feature Brown’s iconic character again with Caleb McLaughlin’s Lucas Sinclair, fan-favorite Dustin Henderson played by Gaten Matarazzo, and Noah Schnapp’s Will Byers.

Also, fans will get to see Karen Wheeler (Cara Buono), Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), Maya Hawke’s Robin Buckley, and Murray Bauman (Brett Gelman). The list, however, scrapped one name, and that could be Sadie Sink’s Max Mayfield. Also, a key member of the Hellfire Club in the series, Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) is not confirmed yet, and he could be in the scrapped part as well.
