If you haven’t seen Stranger Things, are you even a Netflix fan?

Premiering in July 2016, the sci-fi series was one of the first to really put Netflix on the map for original content. Attracting an audience of all ages, Stranger Things was an instant hit with its first season and continues to pull in new fans with each passing year. With three seasons under its belt on the fourth on its way, the show’s fanbase is nowhere near done yet.

Stranger Things follows a group of tween friends in a fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. In season 1, they must figure out what happened after their best friend Will Byers goes missing and they find a lost girl without a home who suddenly appears in their town. Cue the best Netflix character of all time: Eleven!

The next two seasons are equally as thrilling and emotional!

Stranger Things season 4 was released in two volumes during the summer of 2022. It was the biggest release in Netflix history, which isn’t surprising at all. Netflix has also renewed the series for a fifth and final season, but who knows when that will come out.
