Stranger Things series 4 is finally here after a three-year wait, and the cast, including Millie Bobby Brown and Caleb McLaughlin, look so grown up!
Stranger Things first dropped on Netflix back in 2016 and a whole six years and four seasons later the famous cast returned to our screens looking worlds away from their 11-year-old selves who started out in the show.
Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, is just one of the stars of the record-breaking series, starring alongside David Harbour (Hopper), Winona Ryder (Joyce), Joe Keery (Steve), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) and Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin).
In series four of Stranger Things, Eleven, Will, Lucas, Mike, Dustin and Max are grown-up teenagers, not only trying to survive high school every day but also trying to survive the devilish creature from the Upside Down who targets students with trauma.
