Eduardo Franco reveals he won’t be returning for the final season of ‘Stranger Things’

‘Stranger Things’ star Eduardo Franco (Argyle) won’t be returning for season 5 aka the final season of the show.

As Netflix officially kicks off production for the highly anticipated final season of “Stranger Things,” Eduardo Franco, who portrayed the beloved Argyle in the previous season, won’t be making a return. The announcement came as a surprise to fans who had embraced Argyle’s character, known for his comedic charm and vital role in Jonathan Byers’ journey during season 4.

Netflix’s celebratory cast announcement for season 5 excluded Franco, with familiar faces like Millie Bobby Brown, Joe Keery, and David Harbour taking center stage. Despite Argyle’s popularity, it appears the character won’t be part of the concluding chapter.

In a recent episode of the Steve Varley Show, Franco addressed the concerns raised by fans regarding his absence from the cast photo. When asked about his involvement in season 5, Franco responded, “It’s nice to hear that there’s, there’s some sort of, you know, concern or something, you know what I mean?” He then disclosed that he never received a phone call about returning, indicating that his journey with “Stranger Things” has reached its conclusion.

Despite joining the ensemble in season 4, Argyle quickly became a fan favorite with his laid-back demeanor and memorable contributions to the storyline. While fans may feel a void without Argyle in the final season, Franco’s revelation brings clarity to the character’s trajectory.

“Stranger Things” season 5 is yet to announce an official release date, heightening the anticipation among viewers eager to witness the conclusion of the supernatural saga. As the series bids farewell, fans will undoubtedly miss the presence of Argyle and the unique charm brought to the screen by Eduardo Franco.
