There was a detail in the fourth season of stranger things that caught the attention of fans and gave rise to a theory. Eleven, Mike, Jonathan, and even Joyce herself, forgot the Will’s birthday (interpreted by Noah Schnapp) and it is for this reason that he looks very sad on the day his best friend arrives on a trip to California during the holidays. The date that appears on the video filmed at the skating rink is the March 22, the same one that his mother mentioned in the second installment. Was it intentional or really a mistake of the duffer brothers when did they write the new episodes?

The honest answer is, clearly like the characters on the show, we also forget about Will’s birthday.. So the debate now is whether we adjust Will’s birthday or just let it be really sad,” Matt said, and Ross defended himself: “It’s been six years since I wrote that date!”

Now, the minds behind the hit series of Netflix They assure that they also need someone who can help them, because they do not completely remember everything they have written in the previous seasons and they can fall into this type of confusion.

But his brother’s idea is to fix it in the same style as George Lucas. “We are thinking that his new birthday will be May 22because ‘mayo’ can fit in Winona’s mouth [en la escena de la temporada dos donde Joyce dice la fecha del cumpleaños de Will]”, is the solution they propose.

Both writers of stranger things they ended up apologizing to the viewers and to the character himself, “Of course that would mean her mom forgot her birthday! It’s too bad. It was obviously a mistake, and we’re sorry. We apologize to the fans. And especially Will! It is unfair”.
