And once you're done, we've got a few explainers to help you understand it all. All the other shows on this list may check off one of two of those, but no other checks all three like Eerie, Indiana.
OK, admittedly Eerie, Indiana came out and took place in the early '90s, but close enough. The NBC series only lasted one season, but it's 19 episodes following a young teen and his friend investigating oddities and peculiarities, like haunted libraries, magical ATMs, and mysterious UFOs, in his small town in Indiana.
The tone is more fun and whimsical than Stranger Things though there is a fair share of murderous villains , but more importantly, they both share that charming sense of wonder and excitement that can only be captured through the eyes of kids. And they're both set in the Hoosier State.
I wanted to put Freaks and Geeks in this spot, because that's the definitive '80s revival coming-of-age show and has kids the same age as the Stranger Things kids, but it's currently unavailable to stream due to music licensing issues. It's a dramedy about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, an off-brand women's wrestling promotion, and stars Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin.
It's very different tonally and stylistically, but in terms of making you feel like you're watching a fun show made in the late s about the mids, nothing does it better except The Americans , which is so different from Stranger Things that it truly can't go on this list. If Eleven as a telekinetic badass is your favorite part of Stranger Things , you should check out I Am Not Okay With This , which shares producers with Stranger Things and also features a telekinetic heroine at the center of its story.
Set in the Rust Belt, the coming-of-age show follows Sydney IT 's Sophia Lillis , a young teen who is attempting to navigate the complexities of high school, her father's recent suicide, and her budding sexuality while also struggling to understand and control her newfound telekinesis, which is a not-so-subtle metaphor for the experiences of growing up.
The show, which is based on Charles Forsman's comic of the same name, is more expansive and much lighter in tone than its source material, and therefore a lot more viewer friendly. Plus, the show has an awesome soundtrack and episodes are only minutes long.
You pretty much can't go wrong here. Eleven explained she received the image from her mother, before demonstrating her powers and introducing herself as Jane. They revealed to each other their tattoos and declared themselves sisters. Kali took Jane to the roof, where Jane explained that her policeman thinks he can work out a deal with the lab to let her go.
Kali didn't believe he can do this, saying the lab saw them as monsters, but that their "gifts" are not bad, and should not be hidden. Kali explained her illusion powers to her, creating an illusion of a colorful butterfly. After Kali made Jane a bed to sleep in for the night, she explained that she felt whole now that she had her sister.
She said she believed Terry sent Jane to Kali because the two of them belonged together. Mick objected to the idea of hunting another man so soon, as it would put them at risk of being found, but Kali insisted that Jane was in pain and needed to do it, before declaring that they're going the next day. The next day, Kali woke Jane up and re-introduced her to her gang, explaining that while they were not experimented on at the lab, they were still outcasts and Kali brought them together.
She then showed her photos of people who were responsible for the pain the gang had gone through, and explained that they hunt down the men to serve justice. She believed that killing the men was necessary, as they are criminals and simply getting what they deserve.
Jane revealed to the group that she had killed before, and that the people she had killed had hurt her; Kali explained that the people her gang hunts down still wanted to hurt them, but now they make the first move. Kali took Jane to a train yard, explaining that she once kept her pain inside, but was healed by confronting her pain.
She asked Jane to use her powers to move a train; though Jane was hesitant at first, Kali encouraged her to focus only on the pain and anger from her past and use those emotions to move it. Jane succeeded in pushing the train closer to them, and Kali and her gang cheered her on. Jane identified a man in one of Kali's photographs as someone who had hurt her mother. Kali remembered that he once attacked her with a cattle prod, identifying him as Ray Carroll. Jane managed to use her powers to find his location, and the gang agreed to go find him.

And then you cut to Where there's some American and some prisoner. I don't know, I mean, it seems strange," he said. And, indeed, the first teaser for Stranger Things 4 confirmed that he is indeed alive.
However, it's not going to be all smooth sailing for the good chief of police. In a letter, the Duffers explained that "he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human There'll be a "big reveal" about Hopper's history. David Harbour appeared at Comic Con Liverpool in March and said that fans should expect to learn something major about Hopper's past in Season 4. It's one of the things that I've known since the first frame of the first shot, and we haven't expressed it yet, and finally we're going to express it in a big way.
It's my favorite thing about him that you guys don't know about him yet. But it has to do with these backstories of New York, Vietnam, and Dad. Prepare for a new type of horror. The Duffers revealed that our Hawkins pals who are still in America will also face a grave new threat, writing, "a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything.
The Byers family is moving to a new location. The tail end of Stranger Things 3 saw Joyce selling her house and relocating to another town with Will Noah Schnapp , Jonathan Charlie Heaton , and a newly de-powered Eleven in tow, leading to a particularly gutting goodbye between the kids and the friends they were leaving behind.Perfect Stranger Live @ Rainbow Serpent Festival, Beaufort, VIC, Australia by Perfect Stranger.
