Barb is back and she is not happy.

On the heels of Stranger Things' season-two renewal, the beloved character played by Shannon Purser in the Netflix drama made a special appearance in a Tonight Show parody on Wednesday.

The three-and-a-half-minute clip, jokingly described as an exclusive deleted scene from the series, saw fan-favorite Barb (played by Tonight Show writer A.D. Miles) return from the Upside Down to confront the show's younger actors about leaving her there.

When Barb was asked during the sketch if the return of her character meant she would appear in season two, Barb replied, "No, because Barb is getting her own Netflix spinoff, Orange Is the New Bitch."

Reprising their characters in the spoof was Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas). Fallon also appeared in the sketch doing his best "Steve" impression.

Fallon later played a game with the Stranger Things actors in which they all sprayed one another with silly string. David Spade also appeared on the show, which featured a performance by Tove Lo.
