We would like to use this opportunity to inform all members of the Hellfire Club that the spirit of Eddie Munson continues to live on. It has been confirmed by the co-creator of Stranger Things that the Dungeons & Dragons club, which is everyone’s favorite, will be returning.
As the nicest behind-the-scenes photos of Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson) wearing a Hellfire Club T-shirt from the set was published by Ross Duffer on the Stranger Things Twitter account, it is clear that the Hellfire Club will make another appearance in the fifth season of the show. It should come as no surprise that fans are overjoyed with the news. “Hell yeah,” one fan said, while another fan added, “My soul is screaming right now.” View the complete tweet down below.

In the fourth season of Stranger Things, the Hellfire Club, a Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) society at Hawkins High School, took center stage, led by the charismatic Eddie, portrayed by Joseph Quinn, who unfortunately met his demise by the season’s end. The club’s dynamic included members such as Henderson, played by an actor yet to be named, Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard), Lucas Sinclair (Caleb McLaughlin), and Erica Sinclair (Priah Ferguson). The camaraderie of this D&D group was a key element in the narrative.
Eddie’s unexpected death, marked by a swarm of Demobats in the Upside Down, left fans in shock and curiosity about the future of the Hellfire Club. Despite the heroic efforts of Nancy, Robin, and Steve in vanquishing the Demobats by burning Vecna, Eddie succumbed to severe injuries and likely significant blood loss. The impact of his loss is deeply felt, and fans are left wondering how the Hellfire Club will function without its courageous leader in the upcoming fifth season.
Recent behind-the-scenes cast photos released in January have confirmed the return of all original actors to their respective roles in Season 5, reigniting excitement among fans. However, the mystery surrounding Eddie’s role lingers, leaving room for speculation about a potential resurrection or an exploration of how the club will evolve without its valiant commander.
As details about the narrative of Season 5 remain shrouded in secrecy, fans can only speculate on the Hellfire Club’s future and Eddie’s possible return. The possibility of Eddie making a triumphant comeback to lead the club in a battle against Vecna sparks hope among fans, and the anticipation for the final season continues to grow.
With no official release date announced for Stranger Things Season 5, enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting updates. To stay informed about any developments, fans can explore everything known about the upcoming season or revisit Season 4, Volume 2, to uncover hidden Easter eggs they might have missed. The journey into the supernatural mysteries of Hawkins promises to be an exciting one as the beloved series reaches its conclusion.
