As Millie Bobby Brown and the faces behind Hawkins’ young troupe gear up for their show’s return for another season, Stranger Things fans’ excitement has touched an unprecedented level. However, lately, the world of Stranger Things has fallen into a hush as the Hollywood writers’ strike unfolds. Since the Duffer Brothers suspended production to stand in solidarity with SAG-AFTRA, the progress of the show halted. Meanwhile, the enigmatic lead of the series and Jake Bongiovi’s relationship is going as strong as ever.

Now, it is being speculated that Jake Bongiovi may have auditioned for the Netflix series. Recently, a clip of what looks like an audition tape of Jake Bongiovi’s surfaced on X (formerly known as Twitter). In the caption, the user hinted that the video could be a snippet of a “Stranger Things 5 audition tape. In it, Brown could also be heard in the back assisting her boyfriend in the process by reading out his counterpart’s lines.
