“It’s scary and sad, but I’m excited to move on to the next chapter.”
Sadie Sink knows it’s going to be a bittersweet farewell to Stranger Things.
The hit Netflix series, which concludes with upcoming Season 5, has been a part of Sink’s life for six years and marked her breakthrough role, along with co-stars Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Joe Keery, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Joseph Quinn and more.
“We know it’s happening and it’s the final season, so it’s going to be emotional for sure,” Sink said during the Today show, predicting what that day will be like on set. “It’s going to be terrible. It’s gonna be awful. These kids, this entire cast and crew, that’s a family. People say that all the time, but I mean it. And to think that we have to say goodbye to that certainty, knowing we’ll see each other for another season?
She added, “It’s scary and sad but I think it’s exciting to move on to the next chapter I think.”
As for Sink’s character Max, in Season 4 she was seemingly saved by Eleven (Brown) after Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower) attacked her.
“No spoilers, just with the way my character ended up in Season 4 I have no idea what’s going to happen,” Sink said. “But I’ll be there.”
Stranger Things co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer previously teased that Season 5 will definitely be a tearjerker for fans.
“[For] We presented the complete season to Netflix for two hours. We made our executives cry, which I think was a good sign,” Matt Duffer said during a Netflix SAG FYC event. “The only other time I’ve seen her cry was at budget meetings.”
Ross Duffer remarked, “We have so many characters now, most of whom are still alive. It is important to complete these arcs as many of these characters have grown since Season 1. So giving them time to complete their character arcs, tying up those loose ends, and making our final revelations is a balancing act… The way we see it is sort of the culmination of all the seasons, so it has a little bit of everyone. I think what we’re trying to do is go back to the beginning a little bit, in a kind of 1-tone.”
