The actor was present at Motor City Comic Con where he answered fans' questions. When one of them asked him about Mike and Will's relationship, he said,
"But I don't think, I mean I don't, but I don't think there is a turn in Mike. Mike’s, a, you know, proclivity is pretty clear, he seems to love Eleven. So I'm sorry for all of you um -what do you call them?- by, byler, by, I don't know if your ship is going to sail."

It has also been teased that Will Byers will have a happy ending. The revelation that no new characters will be introduced in the final season implies that he will not have a new love interest. It will be interesting to see how the creators of Stranger Things will conclude Will's storyline in the absence of a new romantic subplot.
Some of the fans were disappointed with David's statement alleging that the show has queerbaited them. One of them wrote on Twitter, "well now that david harbour basically said byler isnt happening yall dont have a reason to turn in to the show anymore! boycott stranger things thank you."
Others were happy saying that Mileven endgame was set up right from season 1. A user said, "why does Byler Stan think David is lying. I mean, Mike loves El and Mileven endgame was set up right from part one. It's not something recent or surprising."
Stranger Things is gearing up for its fifth and final season as the production on the show is set to resume soon.
