New Stranger Things Fan Theory Suggests Some Major Characters Could Be Leaving Hawkins


With just one week to go until Stranger Things returns for its third season, it’s crunch time to analyze every inch of the trailers, posters, and interviews, as well as get in all our fan theories online. Despite knowing that the Hawkins gang is growing up and the dangers of the Upside Down are coming back, we’re still in the dark regarding a lot of the upcoming season’s plot. But according to SYFY WIRE, one Reddit user thinks they know a major element of what’s to come, and it involves the relocation of a central family.

Redditor TheHairyManrilla posted a comment in a thread discussing the first season 3 trailer, noting that a scene shows Will Byers crying while looking at a photo of his tight-knit group of friends. This paired with the fact that Jim Hopper is heard telling someone that he wants them “to feel like this place can still be [their] home,” as the shot cuts to Joyce Byers, gives the fan reason to believe that at least two members of the Byers family could be leaving Hawkins. “I'm guessing Joyce is planning to move away with at least Will,” they write.

Considering everything the Byers have been through, a change of scenery would be a smart idea. And Redditors in the thread agreed with the user’s theory. One responded, “Yea I saw that too and [M]ike is looking back at what looks like the empty [B]yers home,” while another added, “Bob suggested moving to Maine last season, and with the mall coming and threatening her job, it probably just makes sense.”

It’s not certain that moving would even keep Will from the Mind Flayer or the potential new monster of the Upside Down, however, if he’s still hanging out with the crew. It’s also important to note that Noah Schnapp, the actor behind Will, shot down the idea that his character will have an easier time in season 3. “I don’t think anyone in our show ever gets a break, that’s kind of what it’s about,” the 14-year-old actor said. “So I can't really say I get to just relax by the beach.”

We’ll see what Joyce decides is best for her family when Stranger Things returns on July 4.

Whenever a classic TV show is brought back for a revival, it usually splits the fanbase in half. While some people are happy to see their favorite characters return, others are worried about the series coming back in lackluster fashion. And when it comes to the idea of a potential reboot of The Office, the series' cast is just as split.

Steve Carell has been very public about not wanting NBC to bring the show back, but Angela Kinsey is siding with co-stars John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Ellie Kemper about welcoming a potential return to Scranton. The 48-year-old actress, who portrayed Angela Martin on the series, recently spoke with, confirming she’d love to revisit the show.

"I would definitely be up for a reunion," Kinsey said. "I know a few cast members have talked about a special reunion episode to see where everyone is at. I would love that!"

Although many are torn on the idea of bringing The Office back, most fans would certainly be curious enoug to tune in and see what's going on with the Dunder Mifflin crew. Kinsey is no exception, saying, “I would love to know where these people are! I loved the show, I still love the show. I think it really holds up. I'm so thrilled that new audiences are finding it, so I would love that!"

Will it ever happen? It's hard to say. But while we wait to see if any official announcement is made, you can at least still binge The Office on Netflix and try to imagine what creepy thing Cousin Mose is doing these days.


Harry Potter Fans Don’t Want to See the Movies Rebooted, Surprising No One

Although the Harry Potter franchise has one of the most dedicated fan bases in the world, that doesn’t mean fans are ready to see the series rebooted just yet. Yes, that would mean more movies to feed one’s obsession, but the general consensus is that it would be entirely too soon. Don’t believe us? A new poll might just prove it. asked more than 2000 Potterheads if Warner Bros. should reboot the Harry Potter movie series, and a whopping 72 percent said they’re against it. The website also asked fans if reboots were made, how they should be done. Of those polled, 41 percent voted for it to be a direct sequel about Harry’s son, 35 percent voted for a spinoff TV series, 13 percent wanted another Fantastic Beasts spinoff, and a measly 11 percent showed support for a remake of all eight original films.

While it doesn’t look like a reboot will be in the works anytime soon (J.K. Rowling’s representatives just debunked a report about a TV series), that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for the future. Even star Daniel Radcliffe has entertained the idea, saying he believes he won’t be the last Potter portrayal he’ll see in his lifetime. But as long as Rowling and fans are against it, we probably won’t have to worry about it for a while.
