Does Amybeth McNulty's Stranger Things Character Return In Season 4?

Warning: SPOILERS for Stranger Things season 4 volume 1!

The Stranger Things season 4 cast includes plenty of new additions, including a role for Amybeth McNulty that will leave viewers wanting to see her again. The long-awaited return of Netflix's hit sci-fi series means the continuation of Eleven's (Millie Bobby Brown) story and the group's encounters with The Upside DownStranger Things season 4 expands the scope of the story by exploring multiple locations and splitting the large ensemble cast into smaller groups. This presents the series with plenty of opportunities to introduce new characters who can be important to the overall story.

Leading up to Stranger Things season 4 volume 1's release, one of the new cast members that generated a lot of excitement was Amybeth McNulty. The Anne With An E star returns to Netflix for the fourth season, where she plays a girl named Vickie. The new season doesn't take too long to introduce Vickie, a fast-talking member of the school band, as she's set up as a love interest for Stranger Things' Robin Buckley (Maya Hawke). Despite the early appearance of Amybeth McNulty's Stranger Things character in season 4 volume 1, she surprisingly doesn't have that much to do.

Amybeth McNulty's appearance in Stranger Things season 4 volume 1 is limited to just the first of seven episodes released. She appears in two scenes with Maya Hawke that play up Robin's crush on Vickie. With the early introduction and a well-known actress in the role, Vickie not returning in any of the next six episodes is quite unexpected. The good news, though, is that Amybeth McNulty's Stranger Things character should return later on in season 4. Netflix split the supersized season into two volumes for release, and Vickie could very well return in volume 2 as the show brings all of its characters together for the final battle with Stranger Things season 4 villain Vecna.

Even though Amybeth McNulty doesn't have a big role in the first seven episodes, Netflix previously listed her as a recurring cast member for Stranger Things season 4. Giving her only two scenes in the very first episode of the season doesn't match that description. This should signal that audiences can expect Amybeth McNulty to return in Stranger Things season 4 volume 2. If that happens, it would make the most sense for her return to be linked to Robin's story.

It remains to be seen if Amybeth McNulty's Stranger Things character will actually get more involved with the group when she does return. Vickie could be the latest character to unexpectedly become wrapped up in a battle with The Upside Down and Vecna. However, she could also stay more on the sidelines when Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 releases and be positioned as a reason for Robin to keep fighting. In any case, it seems Ambyeth McNulty will return in Stranger Things season 4 volume 2.
