How to watch Stranger Things Season 2

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.

Whether you're looking to catch up on season one so you can get the hype, want to re-watch all the episodes before the new season drops, or are just wondering how you can watch it, here's how you can do it.

Netflix Original

Stranger Things is a Netflix Original program, meaning its own studio produces the show exclusively or the online streaming service. You won't be able to watch Stranger Things Season 2 on any other tv service or channel. The good news is Netflix is easily accessible.

Of course, one of the simplest ways to access Netflix (opens in new tab) is through your web browser. If you log into your account (or create one) you'll have access to the entire Netflix library right on your computer. It works with any browser, so you don't have to worry about not being able to run it!
