One of my favorite shows, I am excited to share that Stranger Things is returning for Season Three on July 4th! Yay, just in time, I needed a new show to stream! Thanks Netflix!
Stranger Things is an American science fiction horror web television series created, written, and directed by the Duffer Brothers and released on Netflix. The Duffer Brothers, Shawn Levy, and Dan Cohen serve as executive producers. The first season starred Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, and Matthew Modine, with Noah Schnapp and Joe Keery in recurring roles. For the second season, Schnapp and Keery were made series regulars, along with the additions of Sadie Sink, Dacre Montgomery, Sean Astin, and Paul Reiser; Maya Hawke joined the cast for the third season.
Set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, in the 1980s, the first season, set in November 1983, focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy amid supernatural events occurring around the town, including the appearance of a girl with psychokinetic abilities who helps the missing boy’s friends in their own search. The second season, titled Stranger Things 2, is set one year later in October 1984, and deals with attempts of the characters to return to normality and consequences that linger from the first season. The third season, titled Stranger Things 3, is set in mid-1985.
I am thrilled that a supernatural/science fiction show has made it into the mainstream as strongly as this show. I am a huge fan of both of these genres, and this show is done extremely well. And of course I met the cast!
Cara Buono plays Karen Wheeler. Her son is part of the gang that originally tried to find Will when he disappeared, and her daughter, Nancy, tries to help Mikey’s brother and family as well. Yes, my family and I had lunch with Cara and her family at an event. She is delightful!
One of the Stranger Things gang, Caleb McLaughlin, plays Lucas Sinclair. He was very generous with his time at a social media event I attended last year! We had a terrific chat about the show:
And one more from this blogger who goes to events just to collect celebrity pictures of folks who act in great shows! Gaten Matarazzo!
Who else is anxious to stream Season Three:
It’s going to be awesome!
