TikTok star Addison Rae has reacted to fears that she’ll be cast in Stranger Things Season 5 after series star Joseph Quinn commented on one of her videos.
Addison Rae is one of TikTok’s biggest stars, but she’s got her sights set on even bigger accomplishments.
Most recently, Rae appeared in a commercial for Google, which was met with some dissent among critics… But now, even more backlash is ensuing due to rumors that she’s set to star in the next season of Stranger Things.
Thus far, it’s unclear where this rumor originated, although it’s most likely due to the fact that Joseph Quinn, who played Eddie Munson in Season 4, commented on one of Rae’s videos.
The comment itself isn’t anything special; Quinn appeared to be “testing how to comment,” although this could just be a joke.
However, fans are freaking out over this unexpected interaction, and some are even convinced that Rae is set to star in Season 5 of the hit Netflix show.
Rae herself spoke out on the rumors in a comment on TikTok after a viewer said, “If you’re in Stranger Things, no offense, I will cry.”
“Babe relax,” she replied.
It’s unlikely that Stranger Things fans will need to worry about a major TikTok star appearing in their favorite show, anyway; series creators the Duffer Brothers have claimed that no new characters will be introduced for Season 5, as they hope to continue to focus on the relationships between the existing core group in Hawkins.
Looks like we’ll never see Rae hit the woah with the Hawkins cheer squad — but we have to admit, a TikTok collab with some of the show’s stars would be fun to see.
