Noah filmed a TikTok of the moment he learned of the exciting news. In a video that has since been shared to Twitter by the official Netflix account, we can see Noah and his family huddled around a computer screen. The Stranger Things star appears initially nervous as he clicks on the email, but soon starts jumping up and down and hugging his family when he sees that he was accepted into the ivy league university. “#UPENN2026 BABY💙❤️,” Noah wrote on TikTok along with the clip.
In the congratulatory tweet, Netflix called Noah’s video “the purest thing in the world” and they are absolutely not wrong. See for yourself!
The actor sure has a lot to be excited about this year. In addition to his big college acceptance, Noah has been busy filming the fourth season of Stranger Things, where he stars as Will Byers. The popular Netflix series is slated to return in summer 2022, and the currently released teasers and trailers seem to hint at an intensely suspenseful storyline full of all sorts of twists and turns. In an interview with Total Film magazine, actor Joe Keery (who plays Steve Harrington) posited that Stranger Things 4 could be the show’s “scariest season” yet, praising the Duffer brothers for pulling off another terrifying chapter.
“I think that this year—and I know I say this every single year—but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years, because last year was pretty dark,” he said. We’re more than ready!
