The show's child cast continue to show off their musical talents
Three of the Stranger Things cast have had a crack at freestyling lyrics to the show’s theme song.
Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) and Noah Schnapp (Will) tried devising the rhymes in a video interview for Entertainment Weekly. “Will is gone. He’s dead. J.K., he’s not. Barb is dead – ha!” Matarazzo raps at one point. Watch below.
The freestyle is by no means the Stranger Things kids’ first show of musical prowess. Three of the child cast performed at the Emmys on Sunday night (September 18) as part of its untelevised pre-show entertainment. Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Matarazzo and McLaughlin took to the stage as guest found their seats, covering Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars‘ hit ‘Uptown Funk’.
Netflix finally confirmed that it has renewed Stranger Things for a second season earlier this month. Season two will feature nine episodes – one more than the first – with co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer returning alongside executive producer Dan Cohen.
Cohen has since described the second season as a “sequel”, saying: “We want a sequel that feels like it’s bigger and badder and darker, while answering more of the questions and getting deeper into what’s going on. [The Duffer Brothers] want it to be that great sequel that is satisfying and yet expands the world.”
