Millie Bobby Brown, the Emmy-nominated actress who rose to fame playing Eleven in Netflix‘s hit series, Stranger Things, has revealed that she’s ready to move on from the role ahead of filming the show’s final season.
Ready to Wrap Up
In a recent interview with Seventeen, Brown shared that she is “definitely ready to wrap up” her role as Eleven. She feels that the story has been told, and it’s time for her to say goodbye to this chapter of her life.
“It’s been in our lives for a very long time,” she said. “But I’m very ready to say goodbye to this chapter of my life, and open new ones up.”
A Grateful Goodbye
Despite her eagerness to move on, Brown expressed gratitude for the opportunity to play Eleven and participate in the show.
“I’m able to create stories myself that are important to me and focus on the bigger picture. But I’m really grateful [for the show],” she said.
Stranger Things Season 5
Stranger Things season 5 is expected to begin filming in June 2023 after a delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The show’s creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, have said that the wait for season 5 “should be quite a bit shorter” since they have had plenty of time to outline the concluding episodes. They also revealed that there would likely be a time jump in season 5 to account for how much the show’s stars have grown since its premiere in 2016.
The Impact of a Time Jump
According to the Duffer brothers, the decision to incorporate a time jump in season 5 was made considering how much the show’s young stars have grown since the show first aired.
“I’m sure we will do a time jump,” Ross Duffer said in an interview with TVLine. “Ideally, we’d have shot [seasons 4 and 5] back to back, but there was just no feasible way to do that. So these are all discussions we’re going to have with our writers when we start the room up.”
Beyond Stranger Things
While Brown may be ready to leave Stranger Things behind, her career is far from over. The actress has already lined up several new projects, including the films Damsel and Anthony and Joe Russo’s The Electric State. With her talent and star power, it’s clear that Millie Bobby Brown has a bright future ahead of her beyond the Upside Down.
