Stranger Things: Winona Ryder REACTS to Millie’s New Look

Created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, Stranger Things came out in 2016 and quickly became a pop culture sensation as viewers were unable to resist the nostalgic adventures, fierce friendships and monster mysteries that were doing down in Hawkins, Ind. Its young cast—Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and Noah Schnapp—were overnight sensations, David Harbour became a sex symbol and Winona Ryder staged a major comeback.

Volume 2’s two installments will debut in July and then Stranger Things will wrap up its journey with a fifth and final season.
