Stranger Things is an American science fiction drama television series created by the Duffer Brothers, who also serve as showrunners and executive producers along with Shawn levy and Dan Cohen. Its first season was released on Netflix on July 15, 2016, with the fifth and final season renewed in February 2022. Set in the 1980s, primarily in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, the series centers on a number of mysterious and supernatural events occurring around the town. The Duffer Brothers developed Stranger Things as a mix of investigative drama and supernatural elements portrayed with horror and childlike sensibilities, while infusing references to the pop culture of the 1980s. Several thematic and directorial elements were inspired by the works of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, David Lynch, Stephen King, Wes Craven and H. P. Lovecraft. They also took inspiration from experiments conducted during the Cold War and conspiracy theories involving secret government experiments. One of Netflix ()
