Step Aside, Demagorgon: Gaten Matarazzo Will Be Doing the Scaring in This Netflix Prank Show

If you've ever wondered what it might be like to be spooked by one of the kids from Stranger Things - as opposed to, say, the Demogorgon - then you just might be in luck. Netflix has signed the show's very own Gaten Matarazzo, who portrays Dustin Henderson, for a hidden-camera prank series titled Prank Encounters that's said to be as hilarious as it is terrifying.

According to Deadline, each episode of the eight-episode series - which is set to air later this year - will follow two complete strangers who think they're starting their first day at a new job until their paths collide and nightmarish events ensue. While we can't be sure exactly what 16-year-old Matarazzo has in store for his unsuspecting prank victims (demogorgon attacks? A trip to the Upside Down? An Eggo waffle avalanche?), I have a feeling it's going to be a lot stranger than we think.
