A lot of the success of Stranger Things can be attributed to the questions it makes its audience ask. Where did Will go? What are the lights in Joyce’s living room trying to communicate to her? What’s the deal with the Upside Down? We keep watching because we want

This follows the model set by a previous hit sci-fi mystery series produced by J.J. Abrams. The first show to hook millions of people across the world with dozens of questions about the mysterious plot was Lost. A bunch of plane crash survivors find themselves on an exotic remote island filled with polar bears, smoke monsters, and a whole community of other people – so many questions!
