Stranger Things was that runaway hit that took Netflix by storm this summer and stole the hearts of millions across the nation as well as the world. But just a few short months after its premiere, the show was so popular that the kid stars from it got a special chance to walk the red carpet at the Emmy’s… and steal the show.

Those three kids from Stranger Things that showed up at the Emmy’s, according to Page Six, were Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin, and Gaten Matarazzo. The fourth kid who the stars were missing, Finn Wolfhard, was a little too busy for the event, considering he is on set production for Stephen King’s It right now in Canada.

But the Stranger Things trio that were in attendance gave fans and other stars (as well as the media) something to cheer about.
A big shout out goes to Gaten Matarazzo, who did not take the flamboyant approach to walking the red carpet and decided instead to make small talk instead of plugging the designer for his attire that evening.
“Yeah, uh, I went to this place and got this tux,” Matarazzo said during the event. “I got it at the rental place — from Neil Allyn.”
But Brown and McLaughlin still plugged their designers in classic Hollywood fashion.
The kids, or should we say tweens, from Stranger Things seem to really have an unbreakable bond ever since the show came on Netflix. Not only do they interact well as characters, but they also do the same thing in real life with each other. It’s a bond that was forged early on in their lives as child stars, and it is one that may be able to stand the test of time.

After all this talk about Stranger Things being a runaway hit because of its close references to work that came out of the ’80s, there is one parallel that nearly all fans of the show have drawn. It is almost impossible to watch Stranger Things and not think of the work of Stephen King – more precisely, Stephen King’s It.
It just seems like the destiny of a young child star like Stranger Things’ Wolfhard to have a role in the remake of Stephen King’s It. The role really fits him in a typecasting situation, and the young actor has the trademark style that has already been demonstrated on Stranger Things.
Talking about Netflix and Stranger Things, fans are super excited to find out that the series was not limited to a one-season run. The second season of Stranger Things has already been confirmed, as reported by Entertainment Weekly, and there is good reason to believe that it might just outdo the first season, if all the cards are played right.

For those who have not seen Season 1 of Stranger Things, be warned that there are some spoilers coming up for it, and you should only proceed with that caution in mind.

Season 2 of Stranger Things just seemed to be inevitable, considering how Season 1 ended. There were some situations that were left unresolved, and fans of the show would absolutely demand Season 2, if for nothing els, to wrap up the lingering storylines.
Season 1 of Stranger Things did do a good job of resolving the main plot, but there was another plot introduced at the end of the last episode. For starters, we have found the missing boy, but we have not found out what has changed with him. Is he still affected by the upside-down world? The obvious answer is a strong yes!
Fans of Stranger Things will get to find out those answers and more when the show comes back to Netflix next year.
