Gaten Matarazzo, or as most know him Dustin from Stranger Things, stopped by The Tonight Show to chat about season 4, his quarantine job, and Prank Encounters.

We’ve known Stranger Things season 4 was a go back in October of 2019 and found out it was going to be scarier than ever in June of 2020, but so far that’s all the hints we’ve gotten. Gaten confirmed that this season would be pretty out there saying “They’re going for it this year and that’s really cool.” They started filming season 4 and were shut down during Covid but are starting to get back.

Gaten has kept busy during quarantine with a food service job near his house. He said pretty much everyone he hangs out with got a job there over the summer so he did too. He went full incognito but customers still recognized him. Some people really do have great detective skills!

Gaten also chatted with Jimmy about the show he executive produces on Netflix called Prank Encounters. Haven’t heard of it? Think Candid Camera on steroids. Watch the full interview below!
