When Stranger Things began streaming on Netflix last year, it became an unexpectedly massive hit. Inspired by classic horror and science fiction films from the 1980s, it follows a group of kids in the town of Hawkins, Indiana, after one of their friends mysteriously vanishes.
The show is coming back for a second season (and is already renewed for a third) on October 27th, and we’ll get to see if it meets our sky-high expectations. Follow along for all of the news, trailers, and commentary as we return to Hawkins and The Upside Down for more nostalgia and scares this Halloween.
