Sometimes the truth can be stranger than fiction… and that is the case with Netflix’s newest original series Stranger Things.
Set in Hawkins Indiana in the 1980’s, Stranger Things chronicles the search for a young boy who vanishes into thin air under highly suspicious circumstances. His mother (Winona Ryder) opens an investigation into the boy’s disappearance with local authorities that unravels a series of mysteries involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. A love letter to the ubiquitous cult classics of the 80’s, Stranger Things is a coming of age story for three boys that draws this quaint community into a world where mysteries lurk beneath the surface.
The series stars Winona Ryder, Matthew Modine, David Harbour, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, and Millie Brown, Stranger Things is executive produced by The Duffer Brothers (Wayward Pines), Shawn Levy (Night at The Museum), and Dan Cohen (Story of Your Life).

Editor’s Note: In February, I visited the set of Stranger Things, which started filming in Atlanta, Georgia last year and wrapped in March of this year. The series creators described the show as a mix between The Goonies, Stand By Me and Poltergeist. So if that intrigues you as much as it does me – stay tuned! We’ve got some great interviews coming (closer to the premiere date) from set!
