Paul Reiser hopes his character will return for the fifth and final season of Stranger Things


11-time Emmy nominee Paul Reiser still doesn’t know whether his character Dr. Sam Owens will return for the fifth and final season of Stranger Things, which premieres between late 2023 and early 2024 on Netflix.

The 66-year-old native New Yorker told E! News on Saturday: ‘I literally don’t know.’

Dr. Owens helped Eleven regain her psychokinetic powers and, if he survived, military personnel like Sullivan will continue to pressure him into revealing she’s returned to the log cabin in fictional Hawkins, IN.

‘The Stranger Things writers’ room tweeted out, “Hey, everybody, send us your thoughts for next season. What would you like to see?”‘ Paul said.

‘And I wrote in: “Can Dr. Owens live? Would that be possible?” … I’d appreciate it if Dr. Owens comes in, in like a superhero cape, and saves the day.’

According to IMDb, Reiser appears in all eight episodes of season five.

The Aliens alum originally joined the ensemble cast of the critically-acclaimed, binge-watching favorite in 2017 for the second season as Dr. Martin Brenner’s (Matthew Modine) replacement at Hawkins Laboratory.

‘When I first met [creators Matt & Ross Duffer five] years ago, I said, “Am I a good guy or a bad guy?”‘ Paul recalled.

‘They go, “We don’t know.” And I went, “You don’t know or you just don’t want to tell me?” They go, “No, we don’t know.” And so they don’t tell me.’

Last month, Reiser was hard at work reprising his role as Detective Jeffrey Friedman on the LA set of Mark Molloy’s four-quel Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley starring Eddie Murphy.
