In this year’s Stranger Things, Eleven has returned to the Upside Down after a long absence, while her older brother, Frank, has returned home after a year in the hospital.
But while they’re not all together, they share some of the same bonds, and their shared experiences from their childhoods has resulted in a surprising, emotional relationship between them.
“My brothers and I have developed a strong bond through the show,” says Eleven.
“It was a really, really good experience to work with them and see how they relate to the show.”
“We get along really well,” she continues.
“We’re all very comfortable with each other, and it was great to get to work on a project with them.
The only thing we have to work hard on is the chemistry between us.”
But they are also very different.
“I’m not as much of a fan of the twins,” says Frank.
“They don’t always look the same.
But they’ve both grown into their own personalities, and I think they’ll be good friends.”
With a lot of fans still awaiting the first season of Stranger things, and with some of them waiting to see the first episode of the new series, here are the best Stranger Things episodes produced by brothers, sisters, or cousins, from both sides of the family.
