The Most Anticipated Shows and New Season Premieres Coming to Netflix This Year!
Stranger Things: Season 2
Stranger Things: Season 2 will air October 27th of this year. Season 1 was phenomenal. This scary, science-fiction show is a period piece set in the 1980s. If one was a teen of the 1980s, Stranger Things will spark a sense of nostalgia, and Stephen King and Stephen Spielberg movies will come to mind. Picture a scary version of the Goonies, imagine Stand by Me(but a horror version), or envision E.T. with darker traits. In retrospect, Stranger Things not only appeals to the fans of the 80’s but to the newer generation because simply put, brilliance is universal.
