After the official confirmation from the Duffer brothers themselves, who have ensured that Eddie Munson is dead, the fans have been coming up with facts in which he could still be alive, or ideas about how he could somehow make a comeback in Season 5.
Stranger Things 5 Theory Indicates Eddie Munson’s Return as Kas to Kill Vecna
One particular theory hasn’t just made its way out of nowhere but it seems like it came from one specific scene in season 4, episode 1 that precisely predicted the events of the season finale. Before Volume 2 released, fans speculated that his final D&D campaign would indicate the outcome of the fight between Eleven and Vecna and this could be somehow were right.

Heading towards the end of the campaign, it subsides to Dustin and Erica to defeat Vecna and take home the victory for the success. Dustin tosses first, but only manages to roll an 11 and fails to win against him. Dustin’s roll indicated the final episode, where Eleven really does lose to Vecna. It continues to be seen how Erica’s final roll of 20 will come into the show in season 5, but we got fans’ theories about that too, which involves the return of Kali a.k.a Eight.
Now coming back to the theory about what happened to Eddie Munson’s body. Fans are just speculating that they left him in the Upside Down and Vecna could somehow resurrect him, and select him to use his body as his right-hand man. Recently one Reddit user shared a screenshot of a theory that says:
“Eddie is not dead. The Duffer Brothers have said that you cannot die from the bite of a bat. (Yes, you can eventually bleed out, but the bite alone, will not kill you.) I have this theory that Eddie will become Kas, the vampire…. the right-hand man to Vecna, Kas eventually turns on Vecna and defeats him.”
“vecna’s dead!” ; “he was killed by kas!”
“so it was thought, my friends! so it was thought! but vecna lives!”
kas was a human/vampire that used a sword and a shield.

the eddie being resurrected as kas (vecna's vampire sidekick in d&d) is literally the coolest theory ever he should be able to command the bats and shit

as a D&D expert I bring good news
eddie might be the vampire kas; vecna could give him undead life through the upside down particles, a sort of vampirism 🦇
bat tattoos, died by bat bites, AND Kas was mentioned already❗ pic.twitter.com/s1e9PeBYup
