The Stranger Things main character who was meant to die in season 4

·2 min read

Stranger Things season 4 is all our timeline is talking about right now. Not only did the Duffer brothers respond to Millie Bobby Brown's criticism that more people should have died in the show, but the creators also revealed the main character who was *meant* to be killed off, but they decided against it.

ICYMI, 18-year-old Millie, who plays Eleven, poked fun at the show's creators when she told an interviewer she wanted Stranger Things to be more like Game Of Thrones. "They need to kill off some people. It’s so big," she told The Wrap. "I know. It’s way too big. Last night, we couldn’t even take one group picture because there was like 50 of us. I was like, ‘You need to start killing people off.'"

Creator Matt Duffer explained to the Happy Sad Confused podcast that it just wasn't the style of Stranger Things, explaining, "Just as a complete hypothetical, if you kill Mike [Finn Wolfhard], it’s like... that’s a depressing... we aren’t Game of Thrones. This is Hawkins, it’s not Westeros. The show becomes not Stranger Things anymore, because you do have to treat it realistically, right?"

Now, though, they have commented on the main character they toyed with killing off, but eventually decided against.

*SPOILERS* Russian prison guard Dimitri - aka Enzo (played by Tom Wlaschiha) - almost met his fate in season four, after playing a key part in getting David Harbour's character out of jail following Yuri's betrayal of Joyce.

As Matt explained to Collider, "In terms of who makes it, who lives or dies. I think there was a version where Dimitri, aka Enzo, didn’t make it. Then he ended up making it. But that’s [the most] radical of a departure from the original idea versus what we ended up with."

Godspeed, Enzo! The creators also revealed they plan to start writing season five in August, which hopefully means there's not long to wait for the final instalment.

Stranger Things season four is now streaming on Netflix.
