Stranger Things Timeline

What started as a simple love letter to the 80s, quickly blossomed into one of Netflix’s biggest hits. This is the Stranger Things timeline.

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, we do have several books and comics to add to the timeline as well. And given the popularity of the series, we can probably expect a lot more in the future.

Where to Start?

The obvious place to start is with season 1 of the show. The prequels will help give some context, but might not be the best place to start.

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.
