In its fourth season, Eddie Munson was played by Joseph Quinn. Eddie Munson, who was an archetypal metalhead, was the head of Hawkins High’s Dungeons & Dragons organization, the Hellfire Club. He quickly became a cult character in the Netflix show. His most memorable moment was the season finale “The Piggyback,” when he lured away crowds of demonstrators with a performance of “Master of Puppets” and then sacrificed himself to help Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and the remaining members of the Party.
The success of “The Piggyback” has exploded since its release. In addition, Metallica personally expressed appreciation for Stranger Things‘ use of one of their biggest songs, saying “The method in which the creators of the series The Duffer Brothers have incorporated music into Stranger Things has always been at the top of their game We were excited to see them not only include the song ‘Master of Puppets’ in the show but to also have such a pivotal scene built around it…It’s an incredible privilege to be a big part of Eddie’s life and to once again be in the company of the other incredible artists that are featured in the show.” During their performance at Lollapalooza this year, the group even made a tribute to Eddie.

At present in present, the Duffers and their team are at the beginning of putting together Stranger Things’ fifth and final season. While specifics are unknown yet however, it’s been established that the story will be a continuation of Season 4’s conclusion, and will see Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower) beginning to break through the barrier that separates Hawkins and the Upside Down. “Usually after an episode, we wrap things up with a nice bow, followed by a tease that says, ‘Hold on, something is breaking loose,” co-creator Matt Duffer explained. “As we enter season 5, we don’t have to do that. It will be impossible to restart the season after the end of this season.
