'Bring Eddie Back': 'Stranger Things' fans start petition to bring Joseph Quinn back on show
The shocking events of ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 have left many fans feeling deeply upset and emotional about the death of fan-favorite character Eddie Munson. Essayed by Joseph Quinn, Eddie was an endearing and exemplary character that fans had really taken a strong liking to in season 4 on Netflix. When finally the final two longest ever episodes dropped in this month, fans had not been ready yet had to say a teary goodbye to Eddie when the avid Metallica buff sacrifices his life without a second though in order to save Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo).
Ever since the finale episode showcased the death of Eddie Munson, thousands of fans are still not ready to say goodbye to their favorite character. A popular petition clearly demanding the return of Eddie into the series has been created in writing and as of now, more than almost 43,000 ‘Stranger Things’ fans have added in their signatures. This petition’s main aim is for Eddie’s character to come back to life from the dead rather than only seeing Joseph Quinn do a cameo role for the flashback sequence.
The petition on Change.org, reads, “This is a petition I have started to bring back fan favourite Eddie Munson. The Duffer Brothers have unfairly killed him off and many other fans and I think he deserves to be brought back and not just as a flashback, please sign this petition to spread awareness.”
The undying craze and love for the series that comes in form of rave and critical reviews from ‘Stranger Things’ fandom, audiences and critics is a proof of how each one of us is definitely living in an eerie yet twisted ‘Upside Down’ universe.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, talking about how he’s ready to comeback even if it’s through a flashback or presumably with Eddie getting resurrected and coming back to life, Quinn said, “You know, anything is possible, and I’d be up for anything. So yeah, we’ll see.”
‘Stranger Things’ fans are not ready to say goodbye to Eddie Munson and are constantly sharing their reactions on same.
