Stranger Things Season 4 is set to premiere this very year and I cannot contain my excitement (like most others), and will Billy return in the new season.
The most anticipated show of the year seems to be throwing bouncers at the audience at every corner. First, the trailer showed the return of Hopper who had disappeared at the last season’s end(not dead as we can presume) but it seems another character might rise from the dead in this season.
Yes, I am talking about Billy Hargrove, who seemed to have met his demise in Stranger Things season 3, but that doesn’t mean his time on the series needs to be completely over.
The character, played by Dacre Montgomery, made his series debut in season 2 and has been an antagonist of varying degrees ever since. Here’s how Billy could return in season 4 without ruining his redemption.
Billy will return in Stranger Things Season 4
Billy and his stepsister, Max, were introduced at the beginning of season 2 when their family moved to Hawkins from California. As the new stereotypical “cool guy,” Billy instantly entered a rivalry with Steve. He also revealed himself as a bully, especially in his treatment of Max. She eventually got the upper hand, but matters became serious in season 3 when Billy was attacked by the Mind Flayer and chosen as the new host.
He then built an army for the Mind Flayer and set his sights on Eleven. With her help, Billy was able to regain his control from the Mind Flayer and made the heroic sacrifice to save Eleven, his sister, and their friends before succumbing to his injuries. And as we know heroes are immortal (sometimes the show makes them so).
Many fans are now wondering if Billy could be the next “dead” character to have miraculously lived through the season 3 finale. For that, we can only wait for the series to premiere.
