Described by the subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) leader as a “love letter to the ’80s classics that captivated a generation”, the original drama is set in 1983 Indiana, where a young boy vanishes into thin air in Hawkins, Indiana. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into a mystery involving top-secret Government experiments, supernatural forces and a strange little girl.

ONce again starring Winona Ryder, Stranger Things 3 is set in 1985, and summer's up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, lead character Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves.

While a fifth of Netflix subscribers in the UK watched season two of the programme in the first week of its run,  season three has been even more popular with Netflix confirming that 40.7 million household accounts have been watching the show since its 4 July global launch, more than any other film or series in its first four days on the SVOD platform. In addition, 18.2 million have already finished the entire season.
