Hot off a major summer debut for its latest season, Stranger Things has broken multiple records, even causing Netflix to crash for Volume 2.

Millie Bobby Brown has been a staple in the show, playing Eleven in the fantasy series created by the Duffer Brothers. In a recent video interview with The Wrap, Brown sat down with her co-star Noah Schnapp who plays Will Byers on the show and discussed what they hope their characters' journey will be in the fifth and final season. Brown and Schnapp both agreed that the Duffer Brothers "need too kill" some of the characters. Brown said, "It's way too big. Last night, we couldn't even take one group picture because there was like 50 of us. I was like, 'You need to start killing people off.'"

Brown continued to joke that "The Duffer brothers are two sensitive Sallies that don’t want to kill anyone off. We need to be Game of Thrones. We need to have the mindset of Game of Thrones." The Duffer Brothers of course heard the criticism and responde to Brown's statements in the latest Happy Sad Confused podcast. Matt jokingly responded, "We heard. What did Millie call us? She said we were 'sensitive Sallies.' She's hilarious. Believe us, we've explored all options in the writing room." In response to the Game of Thrones comment he explained, "This is Hawkins, it's not Westeros. The show becomes not Stranger Things anymore because you do have to treat it realistically, right?" While they do not intend on killing many characters off, they did promise that there could be future deaths "on the table" as the series finishes off. He concludes his response with, "This is me basically defending myself against these Millie Bobby Brown accusations and explaining that there are lives behind it, and it's nothing to do with my sensitivity. So there you go Millie."
