Young, fun and millions of followers? Dreamy


Stranger Things has been around for years now – after the nearly three year wait we had for season four, don’t we just know it. But this has meant a lot of the cast members have grown up with us, and we’ve become huge fans of, so it’s no surprise tens of millions of people have flocked to Instagram to follow the cast of Stranger Things.

They’re just as fun in real life as they are on the show – posting loads of behind the scenes pictures of them hanging out, as well as pictures from fancy events and their other major work projects. Here is a ranking of the most popular members of the Stranger Things cast, by who has the most Instagram followers.

Hopper deserves loads of followers, and that he has. David Harbour currently has 6.5million, and shares loads of pictures from his work, and with his wife, the actual Lily Allen! I always forget those two are together and it’s a beautiful crossover every time I remember.

Amybeth McNulty – 6.7million

Amybeth McNulty joins Stranger Things 4 as Vickie, a member of the school marching band and a potential love interest for Robin. Amybeth already has a huge amount of Instagram followers, probably because she was the lead in Anne With An E on Netflix, which has a huge and very dedicated fan base.

Caleb McLaughlin – 11.5million

Out of the main gang in the Stranger Things cast, Caleb McLaughlin has the least Instagram followers – 11.5million. 11.5million seems like a ridiculous amount to say is one of the lower figures, but here we are, they’re a popular cast. There’s only one way to describe Caleb’s feed: It’s giving laid back, cool vibes. His world is somewhere I’d like to hang out.

Gaten Matarazzo – 14.2million

Up next is Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin. He currently has just over 14million Instagram followers and, in case you’re wondering, his feed is as good vibes as you would imagine. Exhibit A being the photo above of him at Universal Orlando.

Sadie Sink – 16.2million

Just missing out on the top spot is Finn, who plays Mike. He can’t really complain though, 21.6million Instagram followers is still a ridiculous number to have. Finn posts a lot about his band, The Aubreys. Finn has also done a few sponsored posts on Instagram, which according to AskGamblers.com, could earn him up to £56k per post. Not bad!

Millie Bobby Brown – 49.4million

Nothing to see here, just the casual 49million followers for Millie Bobby Brown. She is one of the coolest up and coming actresses of the current generation, after all. She shares loads about her beauty brand on Instagram, her on magazine covers and hanging out with her fellow Stranger Things cast members. I think it goes without saying, she’s got the most followers.

Stranger Things 4 is available on Netflix now. For all the latest Netflix news, drops, quizzes and memes like The Holy Church of Netflix on Facebook.
