'Stranger Things' Is Looking for Extras to Appear in Season 5

Want to be part of the Upside Down? Here's how you can appear in season five of 'Stranger Things.' 👾

by Atlanta Bucket List


Just when you thought the Upside Down couldn't get any stranger, Stranger Things is back and gearing up for its final season. Since its debut in 2016, the Netflix phenomenon has kept us all on the edge of our seats with '80s nostalgia and supernatural thrills. The long-awaited final season is finally underway (season 5 was announced in 2022), and filming has already begun.

However, Atlanta locals have a unique opportunity to get an up-close look at the season before it hits our living room TVs. While the show takes place in Indiana, the filming takes place in Georgia, and Netflix is searching for extras in the Atlanta area to join the cast in a few scenes. If you've ever dreamed of being part of television history, now's your chance to make it a reality. You'll earn up to $175 plus additional fitting and haircut bumps if chosen.

The casting crew is currently looking for various minor and adult photo doubles, ages 4 through 30. All genders and ethnicities are welcome to apply. Filming will begin on March 4th, with the potential to film additional dates throughout 2024.

To apply, simply fill out the form here! Be prepared to also submit the following:

  • A full-length body photo (front and back) and a selfie with today’s date on it in your submission. (This is very important because they need to see exactly what your hair/facial hair looks like for filming.)
  • Your availability for March and throughout 2024
  • Whether or not you'd be open to a drastic haircut or hairstyle change

If chosen, you'll receive a text with booking details. From there, it's onto the Upside Down! Good luck...we'll be looking for you in the final season!
