It seems Stranger Things fans were right on the money with one popular theory. Following the release of Stranger Things 4 Volume 1, many fans theorized that Will Byers (played by Noah Schnapp) would come out as gay, after an emotional moment where Will hinted to his best friend Mike (Finn Wolfhard) that he had a secret he wanted to share with him. However, while we guessed that this plot development would be confirmed in Volume 2, that didn't end up happening. Still, Schnapp just revealed that the fan theories were completely true.
In a new interview with Variety, Schnapp said, “I mean, it’s pretty clear this season that Will has feelings for Mike.” And Schnapp felt that this attraction is something the writers have been teasing since season 1. He added, “I think for Season 4, it was just me playing this character who loves his best friend but struggles with knowing if he’ll be accepted or not, and feeling like a mistake and like he doesn’t belong.”
