As anticipation builds for the fifth season of Netflix’s hit series “Stranger Things,” a recent set photo has confirmed the return of a fan-favorite element: the Hellfire Club. This Dungeons & Dragons group, which became a central part of the show’s narrative in season 4, is set to make a comeback, much to the delight of the series’ avid followers.
The confirmation of the Hellfire Club’s return was made via a behind-the-scenes image shared on the official “Stranger Things” Twitter account. The photo features Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson) donning a Hellfire Club T-shirt, reigniting the spirit of the club and its beloved members. This revelation has sparked excitement among fans, with social media buzzing with reactions ranging from ecstatic to nostalgic.
Introduced in the fourth season, the Hellfire Club served as a Dungeons & Dragons society at Hawkins High School. It was led by the charismatic yet tragic Eddie Munson, played memorably by Joseph Quinn. Although Eddie met a harrowing end in the previous season, his legacy continues to influence the show and its characters.

Eddie’s death was one of the most poignant moments of season 4, leaving a lasting impact on the series and its audience.

While his demise was a heart-wrenching twist, Eddie’s fearless spirit and leadership have left an indelible mark on the Hellfire Club and its members.
With the Hellfire Club set to appear in season 5, speculation abounds about the role it will play in the show’s final chapter. Fans are curious to see how the club will evolve without Eddie’s guidance, and whether his influence will continue to inspire its members. Theories and hopes about Eddie’s possible return, whether in flashbacks or other forms, are also rampant among the show’s community.
