Still torn up about Barb’s untimely ending in 'Stranger Things'? While she won’t be making an appearance at Hawkins High anytime soon, she has found a new home on Netflix.
Starting September 7, you can catch Shannon Purser as a lovable high school band nerd in 'Sierra Burgess Is a Loser' .
High school is hard. Dating is harder. But finding yourself? That's the hardest. In the new teen rom-com, Shannon finally gets the starring role and satisfying storyline (read: Sierra survives) that Barb fans have been waiting for.
Like Barb, Sierra is a bit of a misfit, but when she strikes up an unlikely friendship with the most popular girl in school (is that you, Nancy?), she gains the confidence to pursue the cutest boy in town.
Of course, this isn’t Barb’s first resurgence. You can catch Shannon as Riverdale’s Ethel Muggs, a mysterious girl who helps Betty and Veronica crush the patriarchy one day, and turns up as the prime murder suspect the next. Justice at last.
