Poor Barb can’t catch a break.

Despite amassing a huge online following after her appearance in series one, the fan favourite will not be making an unlikely return.

Barb, played by Shannon Purser, only appeared (alive) in a handful of scenes across three episodes, but it resulted in a wave of hilarious memes and hashtags.

In a recent podcast interview with Variety, creators Matt and Ross Duffer revealed they won’t be resurrecting the character.

“There’s no resurrecting Barb. It was really surprising how much she took off. I related to her so I think other people did as well,” they said.

Stranger Things season 2 comes to Netflix on October 31st.
