Byler is one of the most popular ships among Stranger Things fandom. For those who don't know, Byler refers to the ship of Will Byers and Mike Wheeler getting together. Byler gained further momentum after season 3.
Why? Well, in one episode the two are having a conversation and Mike tells Will they were always going to get girlfriends. However, it’s when Mike tells Will “it’s not my fault you don’t like girls” that the fandom really began to pick up.
Speculation about Will Byers' sexuality has been a topic of conversation for a while now. The series has yet to address or explore Will's feelings, but now it looks like the series might be about to touch on that in his season 4 storyline.
Thanks to a hint from David Harbour and Finn Wolfhard in a new video, Stranger Things 4 looks set to reveal that Will has a crush on someone from the friendship group. Netflix Latinoamérica released a new video featuring David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Winona Ryder and Caleb McLaughlin discussing fan theories for season 4.
The cast discusses one particular theory that suggests Eleven and Will will start a romance. But David and Finn are quick to shut that one down, appearing to confirm that Will's affections are elsewhere within the party.
"If you've been watching the show you should know that Will is...not interested in El," David says. "He's interested in someone else in the group."
Finn adds, "Yeah, you'll see soon...who he's interested in," before David confirms, "He's very interested."

Prior to Netflix releasing the video with David and Finn's apparent hints at Will's crush on Mike, fans had already found a review from The Irish Times that wrote that "there are hints of a surprise love triangle between Eleven, Mike and Will Byers" in season 4.
Needless to say, everyone in Stranger Things fandom is now losing their minds on social media over the possibility of Will crushing on Mike. Stranger Things season 4 part 1 will release on Netflix on May 27th 2022.
