Matt: “Will will be playing a big role and will be in the spotlight, that’s all I can say about season 5, about his journey. In fact, we are beginning to see him growing up. It was difficult for a number of reasons, some of which are supernatural. But you’re starting to see him come to his senses.”
Ross: “[It] sets us up to go back to the first season. I think you’ll see it with a couple of character arches, not just with Will. But also with Steve and Nancy, and her relationship with Jonathan, where everything is still not completely resolved. The characters may have taken steps, as in Will’s case, but that journey isn’t over yet. All of this will play a huge role when we try to complete this next season. ”

With the demonstration of Will’s sexuality, no direct discussions about his feelings were left on the table to explore when there would be “Very Strange Things”. is returning. Although Will told Mike that he is the heart of the band and uses Mike’s love for Eleven as a metaphor for his love for Mike, this was only the first step in Will’s long journey.
Since Will is more than 2,000 miles away from his longtime friends, creating a support group is something that doesn’t happen overnight. And the fact that he was gay in the 1980s, when he was vilified at the height of the AIDS epidemic, would only increase the pressure on Will to refrain from telling anyone about his sexual orientation. Now that Will has returned to Hawkins, the fifth season of “Very Strange Things” will finally give him a chance to open up, because he has friends he can trust.
