In a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Stranger Things actor Gaten Matarazzo said that he lives in grave terror of the show's five-season run on Netflix coming to an end. The fifth and last season of the cast will be filmed this year. Since the first episode of Stranger Things, Matarazzo has played the central character Dustin.
When questioned about the series' conclusion, Matarazzo stated that it's interesting to constantly be reminded of how much people have connected with it. It's simply something that has been crucial to his development from his teenage years into his 20s, and it's something that is so vital to all of them. That has essentially defined the past decade of his life, or the previous ten years.
Upon Fallon's inquiry, it was, of course, bittersweet for Matarazzo to have to end the series. There is a certain kind of anticipation because one always wants it to end so one can see how these people will ultimately mature and complete their travels. But there's also, like, a profound fear. Not only has it been fantastic, but there has also been a long period of relatively good job stability. back to contracting again.
Matarazzo has provided voiceovers for movies like The Angry Birds Movie and My Father's Dragon in between seasons of Stranger Things, and he also acted in the Paramount+ original film Honor Society last year. Yet for the past almost ten years, the actor has always had the luxury of returning to the Stranger Things set. Naturally, that will come to an end after the series last episode.
When asked what he wanted from the last season of Stranger Things, Matarazzo responded that he would want to see a decent launchpad for growth. He would want to see these folks flourish and get over the pain they've been through for the last several years.
Stranger Things' last season is anticipated to premiere in 2024.
