Grace Van Dien teases major character death in Stranger Things Season 5

Chrissy Cunningham’s actress, Grace Van Dien, may have let slip some big news for the show during a fan convention in Holland over the weekend.

During a panel at the convention, Van Dien mentioned that “someone important” might die in the show’s next season.

“I heard someone important’s gonna die,” she said in response to a question asking if she’d watch Season 5 after her character was killed off.

“Spoilers?” she continued, reacting to the crowd’s shock after dropping the bombshell. “That’s public!”

This statement has led to a slew of speculation from fans as to who could be getting axed next season, with one of the most popular picks being Dustin Henderson.

The thread below details just a few of the reasons why fans are bracing for Dustin’s possible death, with some making mention of his closeness to Eddie Munson and how he may have been inspired to make sacrifices for the team after witnessing his passing in the last season.

For now, there’s no telling who’s living and who’s dying in Season 5… but star Finn Wolfhard says he believes the show will give each character a “perfect ending.”
