Stranger Things has a brilliant and talented cast in which the actors have ages ranging from 16 to 49. The young actors highlight the cast of Stranger Things, but their age can be a problem soon. Let’s check out how old they all are.
Stranger Things really needs no further introduction at this point, to be honest. It is a Netflix original fantastic drama series with elements of horror. Debuting back in 2016, it was a huge success both financially and critically, with an 8.7 IMDb rating and millions of viewers each year. Currently, Stranger Things has three seasons on Netflix, which were released in 2016, 2017, and 2019, respectively. However, the next season does not look like it’s going to be released soon. We’d hope for it to be released by the end of 2021 in the worst-case scenario, but we’ll have to wait for even more. Stranger Things season 4 will probably be on Netflix in 2022, with the filming planned to wrap up this August.
As the series has pretty young cast members, the growing-up factor is definitely a problem for Stranger Things. In order for the actors not to look older than they’re supposed to be, the crew has to be quick while filming the series. Unfortunately, they haven’t been up to expectations so far because of the pandemic. COVID affected virtually every major production in the industry, yes. Stranger Things season 4, on the other hand, has been one of the worst victims of the pandemic.
This being the case, fans naturally wonder how the crew is going to resolve the aging-up thing. While there are some theories as to how they can overcome this problem, let us check out the actual ages of the young Stranger Things cast. Having started shooting the series in 2015, they have come a long way since then.

Gaten Matarazzo – Dustin
