In season four, Max Mayfield barely survived after being attacked by Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower). Thanks to the help of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and her friends, Max survived the encounter with the monster, but in very serious conditions. The last time we saw her she was on a hospital bed, blinded and with broken limbs. A new image from the set of the upcoming season, shared directly by Netflix, reveals a new look at Sadie Sink's return as Max, still lying in a hospital bed. In the photo, she is with Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), sitting in a chair next to her. The photo appears to have been taken between takes, with the young star smiling.

“It will be terrible. It's going to be horrible,” Sink said about finishing work on the hit Netflix series and having to say goodbye to the rest of the cast and crew. “These guys, the whole cast and crew, it's like… I mean, it's a family. People say this all the time, but I truly mean it. And to think that we have to say goodbye to that security and with the knowledge that we won't see each other again to do another season... it's scary and sad, but I think it will also be exciting to move on to the next chapter."

Regarding her predictions for Max's future, given before reading the script for the final season, Sink said: “I think she and Lucas will end up together. I mean, they're really cute, aren't they? And the little exchange of notes was really sweet. I think we need to see something. There's definitely room for something."
