As fans eagerly await the release of Stranger Things season 5, many are wondering if Byler is going to be canon in season 5. If you don't know, Byler refers to the beloved friendship and potential romantic pairing of the characters Mike Wheeler and Will Byers.
Throughout the series, viewers have witnessed the deep bond between Mike and Will, which has evolved from a childhood friendship to something more complex. The chemistry between Mike and Will has sparked numerous discussions and speculations about the direction their relationship will take in the upcoming season.
Byler has been a trending topic on social media, captivating a substantial and dedicated fan following. The topic has gained support within the fandom, but it has also given rise to heated controversy. Within this passionate fan base, there exists a faction of die-hard supporters who ardently oppose the Mileven relationship, which involves Mike Wheeler and Eleven. This often leads to heated debates and discussions among the fandom.
For some fans, Byler is meant to be canon in season 5. From their perspective, they have been building it up throughout the series. It all started in season 1 when it was thought that Will's disappearance could have been linked to a hate crime. This was due to the bullying Will endured, including his father referring to him using a derogatory slur. This led to speculation among some fans, who began to consider the possibility that Will might be gay.
Fast forward to season 4, Byler fans have now more clues and hints to support their argument. It is now confirmed that Will Byers is gay and he does love Mike Wheeler. However, whether these feelings are reciprocated by Mike remains uncertain and is yet to be revealed. But Byler fans think they have sufficient evidence that suggests the possibility that Mike could identify as gay or bisexual.
