To coincide with the date that Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) went missing in 1983 in Stranger Things Season 1, Netflix has launched Stranger Things Day for the big Stranger Things Season 4 reveal! Although fans won’t get to watch the show until the Summer of 2022, there is plenty of content for you to keep the demogorgons at bay! Watch the Season 4 trailer below.
Ranked by Brooklyn Vegan as the No. 1 album of 2018 and a coveted Record Store Day Black Friday get, Lakeshore Records has decided to give 100 lucky followers a free digital download (sorry – we don’t have the records!) of the Stranger Things: Halloween Sounds From the Upside Down tracks! These spooky and tasty synth treats were originally Bonus Tracks which came with the Stranger Things 2 Deluxe Edition soundtrack that took on a life of its own! And it would be silly for us to offer these on Friday this week when we could give it to you ahead of time so you can enjoy it all Halloween weekend long! Details below.
