But Schapp was tight-lipped enough to not divulge any spoilers, he instead gave the audience a brief glimpse. “You get to see him (Byers) out of that supernatural environment that we’re used to seeing him struggle and fight against,” Schnapp said to The Hollywood Reporter. “This is just his high school normal struggles, and it’s really nice to see that side of him.” And though he’s living in a new city, don’t expect a new look: “You are going to get the bowl cut and you guys better love it because it’s not going away,” he teased.

After being part of the show for three seasons, and a fourth and fifth installment en route, Schnapp, in another interview with Collider, also felt he, and the cast wasn't ready to move on from the roles and the show that made them superstars. "It's definitely something that we're rejecting to accept," he remarked. We're not ready for it just yet. And I think we've said this before, but we are the last people to accept it. You can talk to anyone before us, and we are not ready for it."

He also relived the exorcism scene in season 2 and called it one of the most challenging things he'd ever done. "I think for me, so many. I think in season two, there was one scene just at the end when they were getting the monster out of me, and it was the exorcism scene, and I was just screaming all night. It was so demanding because it was like there were so many angles and shots that they had to do. And for each shot, you have to give your all. You can't half-ass a shot. So, there's every different angle, and every different shot is just constant screaming and everything. It was all the way up until 6:00 in the morning. It was just so much."
