'Stranger Things' Snapchat Lens Takes Users to the Upside Down

'Stranger Things' Snapchat Lens Takes Users to the Upside Down 'Stranger Things' Snapchat Lens Takes Users to the Upside Down

Joe Keery and his girlfriend, actress Maika Monroe, make their first red carpet appearance together at the Stranger Things season two premiere on Thursday (October 26) in Westwood, Calif. Four seasons of the show are available on Netflix. If you're not new to this, you've already skipped this part. The AR experience even includes a portal to the "Upside Down".

The Duffer Brothers, who created the show, waste little time setting the scene, as the camera reveals Reagan/Bush yard signs and "Terminator" marquees. It's a time of "Ghostbusters" Halloween costumes, when unusual doings around the town are seen by some (in what feels like a dual nod to "Red Dawn" and "The Americans") as evidence of a Soviet invasion.

And fans are getting a seat at the table because the series is getting an official after-show.

Netflix is giving Stranger Things the Talking Dead, Talking Bad, and Talking Saul treatment (sans Chris Hardwick) with the show's very own after-show, Beyond Stranger Things. The after-show will automatically begin playing once viewers complete the final episode of Season 2. It's out now and frankly, I'm curious why you're not watching it instead of reading this. It should have been named Strangest Things, but we'll let it slide (unlike Barb's death, which you demand a full accounting for!).
