Stranger Things on Netflix: this character that the creators regret having killed – News Séries

Over four seasons, Stranger Things has racked up quite a few deaths, and the new episodes are no exception. But the creators of the Netflix series revealed that they regret a death in season 4. Warning, spoilers.

Warning, spoilers. It is advisable to have seen the first part of season 4 of Stranger Things before continuing to read this article.

Acclaimed by fans, the first part of season 4 of Stranger Things left no one indifferent, especially for its already cult sequences, such as the passage of Max (Sadie Sink) on the song “Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush . But another scene also aroused strong reactions – rather sad – from Internet users.

It’s about the death of cheerleader Chrissy (Grace Van Dien), killed by Vecna, the big bad of this season. The first episode of this fourth season took the time to introduce this character and to portray her anxieties, traumas and nightmares so that we can empathize with her. To solve her sleep problems, Chrissy goes to see the high school psychologist but also Eddie (Joseph Quinn) from the Hellfire Club who can sell her grass to appease her.

Chrissy’s death mourned

But the two students do not even have time to develop their discussion a little more, and their relationship, when Chrissy is caught by Vecna ​​and brutally killed. Fans found that there was a good chemistry between Eddie and Chrissy and they find it a shame that Chrissy is no longer part of the landscape of Stranger Things.

Even the creators of the Netflix series, Matt and Ross Duffer, regret their choice a little. This is what they confessed in an interview to TVLine : “We always have moments like this [‘Qu’avons-nous fait ?’, ndlr]. We shot the drug deal scene in the woods quite late, actually, in the shoot. We had already killed Chrissy when we shot this.”


Chrissy and Eddie were starting to bond before Vecna ​​came and ruined everything.

And it was this scene that made Matt Duffer realize that Chrissy and Eddie had a very nice chemistry, which unfortunately could no longer be exploited: “The scene came to life in such a beautiful way. And a big part of that is thanks to Joe and Grace. It was just one of those happy scenes where we were able to spin two cameras around to capture them simultaneously. Joe was improvising a bit and Grace was responding amazingly.”

The Duffer brothers were impressed by the acting of Grace Van Dien, revealed in the Greenhouse Academy series, who managed to make her character so endearing in just one episode of presence. This death is reminiscent of Bob’s in season 2, which also upset fans a lot, like the creators of Stranger Things: “I didn’t want to do that. We had fallen in love with the character and Sean Astin. And Sean didn’t want to die. Winona Ryder didn’t want him to die either.”

And their last statement leaves one wondering about the future of the Netflix series, which will end at the end of its season 5: “But we’ll find something else to do with Grace, something else to do with Sean.” What do the Duffer brothers mean by that? While waiting to find out more, we won’t have to wait very long before discovering part 2 of season 4 of Stranger Things, from July 1st.
