• Strange Things return for a third season on July 4th.
• There will be plenty of time for television before that.
• There are other shows that could scratch the same Strange Things itch.
Get ready to turn upside down. The third season of Stranger Things which ends on July 4th is a little over a month away. And while the first two seasons are great – full of shock, excitement, humor, cultural references, and tributes to Stephen King and Steven Spielberg – there are only so many times that you can revisit the 1
Here we come into play. If you've been through the first two seasons over and over again, it's okay – there are other ways to scratch the same itch. There are other portals for creepy worlds and more ways to access bizarre, scary people in small towns, and alternative ways to catch a glimpse of some really scary monsters. While we wait for our ticket to return to Hawkins, Indiana, here are some more recommendations for the visit if you fancy a bit of bizarre.
Charlie Brooker's series of alerts contains a handful of episodes that reflect the setting and aesthetics of the 1980s by Stranger Things including the recently released "Bandersnatch," an interactive film about one restless boy A man who tries to adapt the ultimate video game from a novel at the option of his own adventure.

A few months after the first case on Netflix In the season of Stranger Things many people expected Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij's drama to follow a similar genre. And while the suburban landscape and the outsiders of teenagers ring a bell, The OA is a very peculiar creation. The opening with the sudden reappearance of a girl who has been missing for eight years, and the interweaving of meditations on faith and love for an often icy mystery . But while the story demands a lot, it also rewards a series of compelling performances.
The show, which established and defined the genre of "strange happenings in a small town", Twin Peaks shares DNA with Stranger Things . Both shows begin with a riddle: In Stranger Things it was Will's disappearance, in Twin Peaks it was the murder of teenage Laura Palmer. Just as the search for Will led viewers into a dark realm known as Upside Down, so does the hunt for Laura Palmer's killer. The Black Lodge, David Lynch's dreamy room adorned with red curtains, is now an unmistakable part of television history – and was even faked at The Simpsons . And even though there are no Demogorgons in the city of Twin Peaks, we're asking you to find a more frightening TV villain than Bob.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
A city where strange things happen again and again. A group of outsiders who become best friends. A young girl full of superpowers she has never asked for. And endless pop culture references. Sounds familiar? Buffy took the idea that "high school is hell", and literally made it and woven a high-stakes story of good versus evil into a much more reliable coming-of-age story.
American horror story
Ryan Murphy's wild anthology series is almost as heavily influenced by the horror of the sixties and seventies as Strange Things from the eighties . Each season tells its own story and is inspired by classics such as The Haunting, Rosemary's Baby and The Omen . The latest issue, released in October, bears the title "1984" and seems to pay homage to the Slasher genre.
