Netflix鈥檚 creepy series and surprise hit Stranger Things immediately became everyone鈥檚 summer binge-watch when it was released in mid-July, and we鈥檙e already impatient for new episodes and the release of an official spooky soundtrack. While the return of Winona Ryder, nostalgic 鈥80s references and Upside Down World all helped hook viewers, it was the show鈥檚 young cast that cemented the obsession. It turns out the gang is IRL BFFs too 鈥 they show up all over each others鈥 Instagram feeds, and look like they have SO much fun together. Here are just some of the reasons that they are the official #squadgoals of 2016.

1. They support each other in all their work.Millie Bobby Brown, aka Eleven, went to see The Peanuts Movie with the adorable Price twins, who play Mike鈥檚 little sister Holly, and Noah Schnapp, who plays Will. Noah is also the voice 0f Charlie Brown in the Peanuts Movie.

2. They consider each other family.Finn Wolfhard, aka Mike, is currently filming the remake of Stephen King鈥檚 spooky clown flick It, and while he posts lots of pics with the cast and on set, he often throws it back to his time with his 鈥渟econd family.鈥 Here they are at the bowling alley wrap party.

3. They keep each other laughing. 鈥淭hanks for making me smile every time I step onto the set,鈥 Noah (Will) writes. 鈥淵ou guys are the best.鈥

6. They love Barb as much as we do.Shannon Purser 鈥 aka Barb 鈥 played the awkward, geeky best friend to Nancy Wheeler, and despite (or maybe because of) her short role and tragic end, has become a cult fan favorite. The cast seem to appreciate her just as much. 鈥淏aaaaaaarbbbbbb!!!!!!!,鈥 Millie captions this snap. 鈥淪houtout to @shannonpurser she is awesome!!!!鈥

7. They鈥檙e always giving each other props. 鈥淔unniest guy I know,鈥 Noah says of his co-star Gaten, before shouting out his time on stage in Les Mis. 鈥淎nd he sings!!鈥

8. They spend most of their time together goofing off. Same.

9. They dab together. Friends who dab together stay together. It鈥檚 just a fact.

10. They鈥檙e comfortable enough with each other to hang out on their phones in silence together. The truest test of real friendship.
