"Stranger Things spinoff idea - anything focusing on Lucas' sister Erica and Keith from the arcade," writes one fan.
Remember when all of Twitter went crazy for Shannon Purser's Barb from Season 1 of "Stranger Things"? Well, Nancy's late, lovable BFF has been replaced as the "It Girl" of Hawkins, Indiana by a younger, sassier face: Lucas' kid sister Erica.
Played by Priah Ferguson, Erica Sinclair stole every moment she was on screen in "Stranger Things 2," whether it was calling out her brother (Caleb McLaughlin) for being a total "nerd," overindulging in sweet maple syrup, having her dolls hook up with He-Man, or shutting down Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) for talking too much on his walkie talkie.
It was her Priah's no-nonsense character who started popping up all over Twitter as fans furiously binged the new season over the weekend, with many calling on Netflix and The Duffer Brothers to give the feisty kid her own spinoff.
Here's a small sample of all the love fans were heaping on the minor character.
So far my favourite part of Stranger Things 2 is Lucas' little sister Erica. She's a scene-stealer and needs a spinoff! pic.twitter.com/c65LyDMBRK— Zack Osborne (@zackosborne) October 30, 2017

I have a suggestion for a #StrangerThings spinoff: Steve as the resident babysitter of Hawkins, he does so well, but then he meets Erica...— Perky Angel-pants (@UghItsMin) October 29, 2017
Also Erica is the hero we heckin' DESERVE. Give her a spinoff PRONTO. #strangerthings— Sarah Bee (@sarahbeestories) October 27, 2017
Priah thanked everyone for their support on Saturday, after re-tweeting some of the social media love she was getting:
