What is the series all about?
Stranger Things, an original of the OTT platform, takes us back to the colorful and free '80s, reimagined in Hawkins.
The mysterious disappearance of people and the appearance of a troubled teen with psychic powers give few school buddies the trail to an otherworldly space called The Upside Down, where dangerous creatures thrive and often break the barrier to attack humans.

The frightening environment, awesome cast and noteworthy performances catapulted Stranger Things to an instant Netflix hit.
The third season was watched by 26.4 million US viewers during the holiday weekend in July 4 last year.
This figure, according to Nielsen's Video on Demand Content Rating, is 17% higher than what the Season 2 debut of this series fared in the United States.
David Harbour's Jim Hopper is alive and languishing in Russia
Fans of this series would be restless to catch another glimpse of Sheriff Hopper, the hyped hero who reappeared in a Russian base as Netflix uploaded the Season 4 teaser of Stranger Things in February.
Talking about David Harbour's fan-favorite role, series-creators Matt and Ross Duffer said in Season 4, Hopper faces "dangers both human... and other," meaning Russian operatives and man-eating aliens, respectively.
