Plot Synopsis

Set in 1980s Indiana, STRANGER THINGS is a one-hour drama series that follows friends, family and local police as they search for answers after a young boy vanishes into thin air. Along the way, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. The town's residents include: Joyce, a working class single mother still reeling from the disappearance of her son, Will, a small and sensitive boy who doesn't fit into the 1980's definition of normal; Jonathan, Will's older teenage brother; the town's police of chief; Mike, a bullied 12-year-old who becomes an unlikely hero in the quest to save his best friend; Nancy, Mike's teenage older sister; Dustin, a 12-year-old who marches to the beat of his own drum and whose sense of humor helps defuse tense situations in the series; Lucas, an opinionated friend of Mike's, who possesses a fierceness and courage the other boys lack; and other residents of this small town. Netflix premiered the eight-episode first season on Friday, July 15, 2016 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.
The nine-episode second season of STRANGER THINGS premiered on Friday, October 27, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the entire new season. It's been nearly a year since Will's strange disappearance, but life's hardly back to normal in Hawkins. Not even close. Season 2 opens with the town prepping for Halloween, as a high-scoring rival shakes things up at the arcade and a skeptical Hopper inspects a field of rotting pumpkins. After Will sees something terrible on trick-or-treat night, Mike wonders whether Eleven's still out there. Nancy wrestles with the truth about Barb. Then, Dustin adopts a strange new pet, and Eleven grows increasingly impatient. A well-meaning Bob urges Will to stand up to his fears.
