What’s on the Stranger Things Timeline?


Stranger Things has grown to become a modern television phenomenon since it first debuted in 2016. The show mixed elements of science fiction, horror, 80s movies, and the plain collaborative fun of D&D. With clear influences from old movies involving a cast of young people (like Goonies, E.T., etc.) the show manages to feel nostalgic but still fresh.

This timeline assembles every story element in the Stranger Things universe. This consists primarily of the television show. However, so far we have received one other form of media in the form of the Stranger Things mobile game. Hopefully, we can expect more story contributions (I’d love to see a comic) in the future.

Where to Start?

The obvious place to start is with season 1 of the show. It would be pretty stupid to start anywhere else at the moment. But who knows, perhaps we’ll get a prequel sometime in the future.

As always, if you see something on this timeline that needs adding, deleting, or changing, please let us know. We love to hear your feedback. And if you enjoyed this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, such as our Buffy the Vampire Slayer timeline.
