A Queer Eye hero snuck his way into Hawkins, Indiana.

William Mahnken and his fiancée Shannan, who appeared on season 2 of Netflix’s makeover show, each scored a small role in the new season of Stranger Things, which hit the streaming service last week.

The surprise cameo is first featured in the premiere episode when Nancy (Natalia Dyer) interrupts a meeting at the newspaper, where William plays one of the editors.

William reappears in episode 2, this time alongside Shannan. The two are on a date when Hopper (David Harbour) storms out after getting stood up by Joyce (Winona Ryder).

According to William, he makes one more appearance in episode 3 and six appearances in episode 7.

William and Shannan were fan-favorites on Queer Eye, so it’s no surprise viewers can’t get enough of the crossover. Check out some reaction tweets below.
