The supernatural drama series will start streaming in July.
Netflix has released a trailer for its newest original show. 'Stranger Things' is a throwback to the supernatural classics of the 80's and stars Winona Ryder. The show is written and directed by Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer ('Wayward Pines,' 'Hidden')
In the series, 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, is a love letter to the ‘80s classics that captivated a generation. Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder ('Show Me a Hero'), David Harbour ('Suicide Squad'), Finn Wolfhard ('The 100,' 'Aftermath,' 'The Resurrection'), Millie Brown (BBC's 'Intruders,' 'Once Upon A Time,' 'NCIS'), Gaten Matarazzo ('The Blacklist'), Caleb McLaughlin ('The Lion King on Broadway'), Noah Schnapp ('Bridge of Spies,' 'The Peanuts Movie'), Natalia Dyer ('After Darkness,' 'Hannah Montana: The Movie'), Charlie Heaton ('Shut In,' 'Urban and the Shed Crew'), and Matthew Modine ('Weeds,' 'Proof'). The Duffer Brothers are writing, directing and showrunning the series, and will serve as executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner ('The Spectacular Now,' 'Night At The Museum,' 'Real Steel,' 'Date Night'). 'Stranger Things' is a Netflix production.
