24. Stranger Things

One can’t truly be surprised to find Stranger Things on this list. The sci-fi drama is one of the biggest hits Netflix has delivered, and three seasons in it is still going strong. Fans of Hawkins likely outnumber most fandoms, and I mean no shade by it! When it first premiered, Stranger Things felt like a love letter to the early 1980s movies, with plenty of nostalgia for audiences to unpack. Not that it doesn’t appeal to new viewers. It’s been a hit with fans of all ages as it gives off both familiar and new vibes.

This isn’t to say Stranger Things has always been mind-blowing perfection. Season 2 struggled to please viewers and fans of the first season, but it sure did return packing a punch! Season 3 is amazing and now we can’t wait to see what The Duffer Brothers have in store for us when season 4 arrives.

The friendship the cast has on and off-screen is dynamic, we love their bond and uplifting stories. The first season focuses on finding a young boy named Will (Noah Schnapp). His disappearance is quickly linked to Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), a mysterious girl who broke out of a secret testing facility where she was being experimented on.

After season 3, audiences are more invested in the story than ever. This is especially true when it comes to the characters. Whether you watch the show or not, I’m sure the name Jim Hopper rings a bell as fans were making sure it was trending for weeks! Season 3 left us with many questions and we can’t wait to learn more!
