Netflix has announced the Stranger Things premiere date! The Atlanta-filmed series will premiere eight, one-hour long episodes on Friday, July 15, 2016!
The new drama series is written and directed by the Duffer Brothers, Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines, Hidden), and they will serve as executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen and their company 21 Laps (The Spectacular Now, Night At The Museum, Real Steel, Date Night).
Stranger Things tells the story of a young boy vanishes into thin air. As friends, family, and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top secret experiments, terrifying supernatural forces, and one very strange little girl.
The series, set in Indiana (though filmed in Atlanta, Georgia), is a love letter to the ‘80s classics that captivated a generation.
