Finn Wolfhard has gone purple. The Stranger Things star showed off a new hairdo this week, complete with purple locks. We do not know what inspired Wolfhard’s new look, but many fans took the haircut as clear evidence that Stranger Things will come to an end after Season 3.
Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) also got in on the fun wishing Wolfhard’s (Mike Wheeler) old hair farewell. Brown shared a video of Wolfhard’s chopped hair and captioned the post, “Goodbye @finwolfhardofficial hair.” The comments come after Brown hinted that Stranger Things is nearing a conclusion after the upcoming season.
This past Monday, Brown shared an emotional message after filming her last scenes for Season 3. On Instagram, Brown revealed that she felt like crying “all day” as production came to an end. She followed that up with telling Sadie Sink (Max Mayfield), “I can’t say good-bye,” and Noah Schnapp (Will Byers), “this is not okay.”
Brown did not say the show is ending, but fans took her emotional goodbyes as proof that Stranger Things has reached its end.
According to Entertainment Weekly, rumors surfaced last February that the show’s creators, the Duffer brothers, were departing after Season 3.
Netflix quickly denied the rumors, and Stranger Things star David Harbour (Jim Hopper) assured fans that the series would last at least two more seasons. Harbour revealed that the Duffer brothers have a larger story to tell and that he knows where his character’s journey is headed.
Given the popularity of the show, we are confident that Netflix will continue to green light new seasons as long as the Duffers are still on board. In fact, all of the main characters received a significant salary bump after last season.
Each member of the cast was paid anywhere from $150,000 to $350,000 for each episode in Season 3.
Stranger Things is expected to return next summer.
