Stranger Things

Set in the 1980s, Stranger Things follows a group of friends and a small town who try to make sense of new threats facing the town and its residents. The show premiered on Netflix in 2016, and a second season hit the streaming service in 2017. It’s been a while since we’ve seen new episodes of this Netflix original series.

If you haven’t seen the series, we highly recommend you check out the first two seasons right now!

Those who have seen Stranger Things and Game of Thrones know the shows couldn’t be more different. While other shows on the list deal with themes and storylines similar to Game of Thrones, Stranger Things is only like Game of Thrones in one aspect: popularity.

Game of Thrones is/was the most popular show on TV, and I’d bet Stranger Things is no. 2 on that list. People love this show, and it’s only getting more popular.

Stranger Things is coming back for season 3 on the Fourth of July. And, we’re expecting at least one more season of the series season 3. There’s also a possibility of a fifth season, and prequels and sequels if Netflix wants to make the world of Stranger Things happen. I’m sure millions would tune in!

Of all the shows on this list, Stranger Things is in the best position to become the next Game of Thrones in terms of popularity. We’ve waited a long time between seasons, but this has to be the second-most popular scipted series on TV, and it’s only going to get more popular as Netflix grows around the world and more people get to see this series.

The long wait might deter some people. It seems to be only making this series more desirable. You can bet millions of people will be tuning in to watch Stranger Things 3 on July 4!

Stay tuned for more news about the hit series!
