Stranger Things star Sadie Sink has promised that the ending of the hugely popular Netflix show will be ‘horrible’ and ‘scary’.
Sink, aged 20, stars in the hit sci-fi fantasy series as Max Mayfield, a skateboarding tomboy who is the younger sister of Billy.
While we still have no official word on the final season’s release date, reports have suggested it probably won’t be until 2024, with The Hollywood Reporter also saying that the series is expected to run for eight episodes.
However, when it finally lands on Netflix, it sounds like we’re in for a treat, with Sink recently saying we can expect a wild ride.
Speaking to presenters Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush on Today, Sink said season five of Stranger Things will trigger a mix of emotions for fans.
“We know that it’s happening and that it’s the last season, so it’s going to be emotional, I’m sure,” she said.
“Spoiler-free – just with the way my character ended in season four. I have no idea what is going to happen. But I’ll be there.”
Explaining how she thinks she’ll feel filming her final scenes, the actor said: “It’s going to be awful. It’s going to be horrible.
“These kids, this entire cast and crew, it’s family. People say that all the time, but I genuinely mean it. And to think that we have to say goodbye to that security and knowing that we’re not going to be seeing each other for another season?”
Sink said the series would be ‘scary and sad’, adding: “But I think it’s exciting to kind of move on to the next chapter, I guess.”
Last November, the Duffer Brothers said they turned the first season five script into Netflix, and that they were working on a second.
Speaking at a Los Angeles panel to discuss the show, they also revealed that when they first pitched the full season to the streaming site, there were no dry eyes in the house.
“We did get our executives to cry, which I felt was a good sign that these executives were crying,” Matt Duffer said before joking: “The only other times I’ve seen them cry were like budget meetings."
Executive producer Shawn Levy added: “As a witness and having been in that two-hour pitch room and having read the first script – I’m paralysed with fear that I’ll spoil anything, but I will say the thing about these Duffer brothers is that even though the show has gotten so famous and the characters have gotten so iconic and there’s so much about the ‘80s and the supernatural genre, it’s about these people, it’s about these characters.
“Season five is already so clearly taking care of these stories of the characters because that’s always been the lifeblood of Stranger Things.”
