Plot Synopsis

Set in 1983 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.
On Wednesday, August 31, 2016 Netflix announced that it has renewed STRANGER THINGS for a second season to premiere in 2017. Nine new episodes are confirmed for the second season. Executive Producers Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen and the Duffer Brothers will all return for Season 2.
