If you've watched Netflix's sci-fi series Stranger Things, you are probably familiar with Barb, the seemingly plain friend of Nancy who captured the hearts of viewers with her cute cropped red hair and giant spectacles, becoming the surprise sweetheart of the series. Barb-mania is sort of a phenomenon, so when her character was heartlessly left to die at the hands of the demogorgon (oh, spoiler alert btw), dreams of Barb's return were crushed. That is, until she resurfaced on Wednesday night's episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Barb, played by Tonight Show head writer A.D. Miles, is joined by Fallon (stepping in for Joe Keery as Steve Harrington), and the actual stars of Stranger Things—Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin.

Maybe the newly confirmed season two of Stranger Things will have some justice for Barb? Otherwise, fans would definitely settle for Orange is the New Bitch. That sounds excellent and very binge-able.
