1. If you've seen Stranger Things, you'll know the best part about it is the cast of characters – and they're all BFFs in real life, too.

2. So along with the release of Season 2 have come some seriously adorable photos of the cast hanging out off-set.

3. Like this photo of Millie Bobby Brown and Sadie Sink on holiday together, proving that Eleven and Max are actually besties after all.

4. And this photo of Millie, Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), and Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) having what looks like the best time.
