Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 took away Eddie Munson, the most unique character of the show. The metalhead freak was a remarkable addition to the D&D gang. And viewers loved Eddie for his imperfection, and his death wasn’t bearable for them. In other words, fans thought that his sacrifice was futile and he must return in season 5. There is a constant debate going on social media where fans are speculating on different ways he can come back to life.
Fans also have their classic vampire theories that will blow your mind. What do you think? Is there hope for Eddie Munson? Or do fans have to accept his goodbyes from the show finally? Let’s find out what Joseph Quinn, Duffer Brothers, and fans are saying about the character.
Will Eddie Munson come back from the dead in season 5 of Stranger Things?
I didn’t run away this time, right? Saying these last words, Eddie died in the arms of his young friend Dustin in volume 2, leaving fans disheartened about his tragic fate when it wasn’t even required. So they pushed their imagination to bring a solution to this chaotic death through resurrection or otherworldly things with their theories. One particular theory connects Munson to the Halloween franchise, where a character is revived after being killed several times.
@jadenbricker brought his interpretation of the theory to light. He stated that the show had several references, with two of the characters were wearing Mathew Myers mask (Max and Eddie). Interestingly, one of them came back from death, so jadenbricker thinks Eddie might also return. We admire how much these people love this show and the characters in it. But there are heartbreaking facts that say there is no way in for Joseph Quinn in season 5.
For instance, Quinn told Variety in an interview that creators signed for one season only. Therefore, we might not see him ever again on Stranger Things. Duffer Brothers also confirmed to Hollywood Reporter that Eddie is dead, and there is definitely no hope for the king of Hellfire Club to return alive. However, this is Stranger Things, where four characters cheated death (Eleven, Hopper, Dr. Brenner, and Max), so chances, however, slim may exist upon Eddie’s return. If not above, then maybe in a supernatural form, as theorized by fans.
Munson stans have a different opinion on his death in Stranger Things
Twitter is rife with fan theories on how Eddie Munson can make a comeback to the show with all his bada*sness. Here’s a glimpse into the madness.
“vecna’s dead!” ; “he was killed by kas!”
“so it was thought, my friends! so it was thought! but vecna lives!”
kas was a human/vampire that used a sword and a shield.

the eddie being resurrected as kas (vecna's vampire sidekick in d&d) is literally the coolest theory ever he should be able to command the bats and shit

I think it’s more likely to be Eddie tbh, Kas was a vampire who was brought from the dead by vecna. Eddie was killed by bats and would be brought from the dead by vecna. Also kas wields a sword and shield like Eddie did when he died. It would just ✨fit✨

as a D&D expert I bring good news
eddie might be the vampire kas; vecna could give him undead life through the upside down particles, a sort of vampirism 🦇
bat tattoos, died by bat bites, AND Kas was mentioned already❗ pic.twitter.com/s1e9PeBYup
