It seems that the makers of “Stranger Things” are just as concerned about the fate of Barb Holland as the show’s viewers are.
Just in time for Halloween, Netflix has gifted fans of the series with a fake newscast from the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana.
The newscast, “Minute by Minute With Brenda Wood,” devotes significant coverage to Holland, who was last seen sitting by the pool at Steve Harrington’s house before being snatched away by an unknown presence.
“When asked to describe Barbara, her friends and peers praised her as loyal to a fault. The kind of girl who notices if you’re wearing a new bra, and can really rock a pair of mom jeans — or, as we call them now, jeans,” the newscaster for the ’80s-set series notes.
Wood also goes on to note that Holland was last seen wearing a pink blouse, green pants, blue jacket and “an oversized pair of absolutely fantastic glasses.”
Viewers will want to tune in to the end, when Wood offers on-the-scene footage of a “vagrant” making off from a local store with a stack of Eggos.
Watch the video for all the latest — well, a few decades-old, anyway — happenings in Hawkins.
