"We deserve a Stranger Things musical episode." A fan tweets. Who knows? It might actually happen.

Stranger Things' stars Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) and Sadie Sink (Max), shared an Instagram clip of themselves singing as Elsa and Anna from Frozen, and fans absolutely loved it.
Check out the amazing clip here.
We think we can all agree that the two actresses can clearly sing well. And let's not forget the fact that the rest of the Stranger Things cast can also sing.
After all, Finn Wolfhard and Gaten Matarazzo have their own bands, Calpurnia and Work In Progress, respectively. And they, alongside Noah Schnapp and Caleb McLaughlin, sung 'The Upside Downs Medley' with James Corden on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Oh, and don't forget Millie's Beat Battle with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Now, fans are demanding a musical episode with the Stranger Things' cast:
And it wouldn't be odd if an episode was dedicated to a singing special. After all, it's been done before.
Uh, Riverdale's 'Chapter Thirty-One: A Night to Remember' episode? Buffy the Vampire Slayer's 'Once More, with Feeling' episode, How I met Your Mother's 'Girls Versus Suits' episode, and finally, Flash and Supergirl's crossover episode 'Duet'.
Looking at the list, Stranger Things could take a page from the Riverdale's musical episode since it's centred around a school production. Maybe Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) wants to get some normal school experience and decides to try out for the school production? And maybe Mike and the rest of the gang join too for support?
It's definitely within the realm of possibility!
Not to mention, Stranger Things already had a small musical number.
In the last episode of Stranger Things' season three, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) sings a duet with Suzie (Gabriella Pizzolo) in order to get Suzie to tell him Planck's Constant. The song they sang is the beloved theme song to The NeverEnding Story.
And fans loved it.
The clip of the two of them singing has gained over 7.7 million views on YouTube, and it's still being spread all over social media. Even Millie hopped onto the trend by challenging fans to the #NeverEndingChallenge. (Read more here).
And who knows? If a musical episode were to happen, Eleven and Mike could become as iconic as High School Musical's Troy Bolton (Zac Efron) and Gabriella Montez (Vanessa Hudgens).
At least some fans are already comparing the pair with the picture below:

...After all, the Stranger Things' official Twitter do respond to fans.
