Now, the A Quiet Place: Day One star told Entertainment Tonight he might "pop down" to the set of the science-fiction horror series.

"Chances are high," he said of reuniting with the cast on set. "I love those guys! I'd love to say hello."

Quinn continued to gush about the show and how it's nearing its end. "I'm sure they're working very hard to land the plane. It's been a long time that they've been working on that, so I'm really delighted that they're kind of getting towards the end, and they're having a nice time," he added.

"I'm sure they're gonna deliver it in a pretty epic way," the actor added. "I have no doubts."

While speaking exclusively to PEOPLE about stepping into the iconic comic book role —which has been played by Chris Evans or Michael B. Jordan in previous iterations — Quinn said that the two actors have given him "big boots to fill."

"They're both brilliant actors and did the amazing job with their interpretation of Johnny," he said. "So I think it's a question of trying to find something ... well, not different. It's going to come from me, I guess."

The final season of Stranger Things is in production after having first premiered in 2016.

Netflix hasn't revealed an official release date for the season yet, but the show's creators previously stated that it will be a shorter break than the 3-year gap between seasons 3 and 4. However, the timeline has likely shifted as production for the season was postponed as a result of the 2023 actors and writers strikes.
