Stranger Things Star Confirms Will Byers’ Sexuality


Fans of the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things, are desperate to know Will Byers’ sexuality for some reason, and one of the stars of the show has confirmed what many of us expected to be true.

Noah Schnapp spoke about this during a recent interview he did with Variety.

Here’s what he had to say when he was asked whether Will is gay or not:

Obviously, it was hinted at in Season 1: It was always kind of there, but you never really knew, is it just him growing up slower than his friends? Now that he’s gotten older, they made it a very real, obvious thing. Now it’s 100% clear that he is gay and he does love Mike. But before, it was a slow arc. I think it is done so beautifully, because it’s so easy to make a character just like all of a sudden be gay.

There has been a lot of chatter online about Will Byers’ sexuality which I’ve been finding rather odd.

I don’t think it matters whether Will is gay or not and also, I did think that it was pretty evident from the earlier seasons.

The Duffer Brothers hinted at Will’s sexuality from the first season.

However, people still wanted to have a definite answer to their questions.

They have finally been given that answer, and I’m hoping that we can all move on now.
