While discussing fan theories in an interview for season 4, the cast discusses one particular theory that suggests Eleven and Will explore the romance. But David and Finn are likely to turn that down, seeming to confirm that Will’s affections are elsewhere within the party. David says:

“If you’ve been watching the show you should know that Will is…not interested in El.”

“He’s interested in someone else in the group.”

Further, Finn adds:

Well, this might be heartbreaking for El and Will’s shippers but, apparent from his lack of interest in girls and dating in general, David talked about a few more things.

“Will wants to be in the basement with Mike playing D&D for the rest of his life.”

Before Netflix released the video with David and Finn’s noticeable hints at Will’s crush on Mike, fans had already found a review from The Irish Times that stated:

“There are hints of a surprise love triangle between Eleven, Mike, and Will Byers” in season 4.”

And now everyone is losing their minds on social media over the possibility of Will crushing on Mike! Of course, with all the hidden details about Stranger Things 4 still under mystery and fans will have to wait and see what David Harbour and Finn Wolfhard want to hint at Will’s apparent crush. However, the actor also gave us certain clues confirming the speculation somehow.

“Yeah. I think you find out slowly through the season, Will’s kind of love towards Mike and I think it’s a really beautiful thing.”

The new season is set to be released on Friday 27th May.
