Stranger Things season 4 introduced several new characters. Some of them instantly became fan-favorite and Argyle was among them. Sadly, Eduardo Franco, who played this eccentric character, revealed in an interview that he will not return to season 5. The actor did not get a call from the creators, so he believed it was the end of his role. However, this seems to not be the only hit fans would get during the fifth and final season as they might also lose Eddie Munson forever too.

New pictures for the set showed the beloved Dusty recreating Eddie Munson’s famous gesture. In the sneak peek, Gaten Matarazzo imitated the Metalhead by sticking out his tongue and forming antlers over his head. He also wore his Hellfire Club tee and a very Munson-inspired hairstyle. More pictures shared on social media revealed the devastating details of the filming location and left no room for the return of the beloved character.

A pair of snaps shared on X (formerly Twitter) showed Matarazzo standing beside Eddie Munson’s gravestone. In season 4, this character played by Joseph Quinn showed a remarkable turn of bravery and sacrificed his life in Upside Down to save Dustin. However, fans who loved him refused to say goodbye to him. Some created theories of his revival as a supernatural entity, while others wished he did not die in the alternative dimension.
