Millie Bobby Brown moving on from Stranger Things

Brown’s career-defining moment came in 2016 with her role as Eleven in the Netflix series Stranger Things. Her portrayal of the enigmatic girl with telekinetic powers captivated audiences worldwide.

At just 13, she earned a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, making her one of the youngest nominees in the award’s history. This role not only showcased her acting prowess but also made her a central figure in the success of Stranger Things.

However, she has expressed excitement about moving on from the series, which is set for its final season. In a previous interview with Glamour UK, she said she was ready to tell the show “thank you and goodbye.”

“Stranger Things takes up a lot of time to film, and it’s preventing me from creating stories that I’m passionate about,” she said in the interview. “So I’m ready to say, ‘Thank you, and goodbye.’”

As Stranger Things approaches its final season, fans are eagerly awaiting the conclusion of Eleven’s story. The series has been a cultural touchstone, blending 80s nostalgia with supernatural intrigue. The fourth season ended with Hawkins in chaos, leaving many questions unanswered and setting the stage for an epic finale.

The fifth season, expected to be released in 2025, promises to wrap up the story with the same intensity and emotion that has characterized the series. The Duffer Brothers, creators of Stranger Things, have had the ending planned from the beginning, ensuring a satisfying conclusion for the characters and the audience.

While Stranger Things has been a significant part of her career, Millie Bobby Brown has also explored other avenues in the entertainment industry, which Inside the Magic has covered. She starred in major films such as Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) and Godzilla vs. Kong (2021), expanding her repertoire.

Additionally, she took on a dual role as both star and producer in the Netflix film Enola Holmes (2020) and its 2022 sequel, further demonstrating her versatility and ambition. She also starred in the recently-released Netflix film Damsel (2024) in which she played the character of Princess Elodie.

Brown’s latest project, which sees her star alongside Chris Pratt, is titled The Electric State. In comments, Brown shared that Pratt had been supportive of her.

“He’s such a great man, but also a great actor and a great costar,” she said. “And you rarely get that in this business, to work with men that really support you and understand you and let you shine.”

Millie Bobby Brown’s personal life has also been in the spotlight recently. She reportedly married Jake Bongiovi, son of rock legend Jon Bon Jovi, in a secret ceremony. The couple, who got engaged in the spring of 2023, chose a low-key wedding attended by close family members, which Inside the Magic previously covered. They are planning a larger celebration in the US later this year.

Despite rumors, Brown has clarified that she is not changing her name. Jon Bon Jovi, speaking about their young marriage, said, “I don’t know if age matters. If you find the right partner and you grow together, that’s what’s important.”

The couple shares a deep love for animals and lives on a farm in Georgia with a variety of pets. Their menagerie includes nine dogs, 23 foster pups, four cats, two donkeys, sheep, cows, goats, and a pony. Recently, they welcomed a ginger kitten named Loki into their family, which Brown proudly introduced to her Instagram followers.

With Stranger Things concluding, Millie Bobby Brown is poised to embark on new adventures. Her career, marked by impressive roles and accolades, is set to continue its upward trajectory.

No other information has been shared about Stranger Things 5’s status at this time. Netflix previously confirmed that the sci-fi drama series would not be released in 2024, as originally planned. Instead, we’re likely looking towards a release in late 2025. The cast and crew are currently in the middle of production, but nothing else has been offered from the Duffer Brothers.
