On November 6, 1983, Will Byers went missing in Hawkins, Indiana. Long after the town gave up the search, his friends kept looking… and discovered a mysterious girl known only by a number: Eleven. She was alone, hunted, and extremely powerful. Eleven would stop at nothing to help them find their friend.

I love this show!
The series premiered on Netflix on July 15, 2016. Set in the 1980s in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, the first season focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy (Will Byers) amid supernatural events occurring around the town, including the appearance of a girl with psychokinetic abilities (Eleven). The series stars an ensemble cast including Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Joe Keery, Cara Buono, Dacre Montgomery, and Maya Hawke.
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:
