Stranger Things has become a favorite of tweens, teens and adults alike since it was first released in 2016. The Netflix original is a sci-fi horror set in 1980s Indiana. The show’s premise revolves around a young boy’s disappearance amid supernatural events happening throughout the town. The missing boy’s friends meet Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown), a young girl with psychokinetic powers who helps them search for their friend. As the show progresses, viewers follow the group as they grow up in a town where things just get stranger and stranger.
