Grab a slice of Surfer Boy pizza, pull up a seat, and prepare to laugh for four minutes straight, because a new “Stranger Things” blooper reel has arrived. Released during Netflix’s virtual Tudum event on Sept. 24, the video highlights behind-the-scenes outtakes from the show’s fourth season, and seeing the entire cast break character on set is enough to tide us over until its fifth and final installment.
Throughout the compilation, the actors botch their lines, crack jokes with and play pranks on each other, make funny faces directly to the camera, show off their dance moves, and mess with fussy props. A few standout moments include Joe Keery and Maya Hawke repeatedly saying “boobies,” Eduardo Franco struggling to deliver one of Argyle’s many iconic lines, Finn Wolfhard casually busting out his spot-on British accent impression, and Millie Bobby Brown flossing in Eleven’s sensory deprivation tank suit. But the ultimate highlight is undoubtedly Jamie Campbell Bower losing composure in his head-to-toe Vecna costume. Yep, now we need a separate blooper reel entirely dedicated to to the veiny villain.
Netflix has consistently treated fans to outtakes a few months after each new season of “Stranger Things” hits the streamer. Series creators Matt and Ross Duffer are currently working on the supernatural drama’s fifth season, recently teasing they likely won’t be introducing additional characters to the cast. It’s unclear exactly when the final chapter will premiere, but when it does, we can rest assured that entertaining bloopers will follow soon after.
