Stranger Things burst onto the scene when Netflix released it in July 2016. The show quickly garnered praise for its writing prowess, believable characters, some outstanding actor performances, and it's spooky, exciting plot. Fast forward to today and Stranger Things Season 2 is set to release this October 27th at 12 a.m. PST.
