Shows like Stranger Things: Locke & Key

A family returns to their ancestral home and while there, the kids discover magical keys, each with unique abilities in this supernatural fantasy series. I also highly recommend checking out the graphic novels if you ever get the chance. One of the show’s stars, Connor Jessup, described it as existing “somewhere in the world of a Stranger Things meets The Chronicles of Narnia.”

Shows like Stranger Things: The Umbrella Academy

We’re lucky enough this year to get new seasons of Stranger Things and The Umbrella Academy, two of Netflix’s biggest shows. The Umbrella Academy is an excellent follow-up if you haven’t seen it before. While the show is more humorous and not quite as dark, it’s still a blast to watch and it has tons of great music and nostalgia factor to be enjoyed by fans (especially during the time-traveling second season!).

Netflix has also renewed The Umbrella Academy for a fourth and final season, so if you’ve been holding out on watching it for any reason then now is the best time to tune in to find out how it all ends. We’re expecting the final season to premiere sometime in 2024.
