Because season 2 is literally right around the corner!

Strangers Things is one of the best things that happened in 2016—the cast (and we mean every single one of them), their friendship, Winona Ryder making a comeback, memories of our childhood, jocks not turning out to be complete jerks…the list goes on. Now with season 2 right around the corner and knowing everything we know about it, we’re already beyond excited that we’re literally counting down the days until October 27! So whether you’re part of the fandom or starting your Stranger Things journey just now (because your friends won’t stop talking about it and you can’t relate. Watch season 1 right here), here’s a fun list of things only serious fans will understand.
