When your cast is chock-full of talented, bright-eyed youngsters, there’s bound to be a certain camaraderie in the group. The Stranger Things cast is a perfect example. The group clearly bonded through the filming of Season 1 – and through the media circus that was to follow. Having just wrapped filming on Season 2, the cast collectively took to Instagram to celebrate and – adorably – share their love for one another.
With the addition of some new cast members (and returning cast members like Noah Schnapp in a more visible role), the young stars seem to have formed some close connections. They wax poetic about how much they’ll miss each other, take group photos, and get up to some age-appropriate hijinx – water gun battles with the crew and group henna tattoos. It’s like the last day of an incredibly public and expensive summer camp. They’re infectiously sweet and it’s just adorable.
Their delightful group chemistry helped them earn the Screen Actors Guild award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. They struck a wonderful balance that won over fans and critics alike; each actor elevates the performance of their counterpart in a beautiful way.
Stranger Things Season 2 hits Netflix on October 31, 2017 (a perfectly spooky release date). Just another reason why we can’t wait for Halloween.
Noach Schnapp plays the unfortunate Will Byers who – having spent the majority of Season 1 in “the upside-down” – has finally returned home. It’s so good to have him back! But has he brought something with him? Time will tell.
Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) – embracing the horror theme – can be seen next in the highly anticipated It remake.
Last night of shooting. Sadie I love you with all my heart. Finn thank you for making me laugh! Gaten, thank you for being there for me throughout everything. Caleb, my older brother thank you for protecting me no matter what! And Noah, thank you for being my partner in crime ❤️ can't wait for everyone to see this season as it's epic! This wouldn't have happened without the crew!
Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) will star in the upcoming Godzilla 2.
