Today is officially Stranger Things Day and fans across the world are busy celebrating the Netflix phenomenon.
Although there’s not yet a confirmation date of the upcoming fourth season, this is when we can all come together and marvel at the Duffer brothers’ creation.
‘But what is it?’ we hear you cry. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
What is Stranger Things Day?
Stranger Things Day is a day of appreciation of the hit series and takes place on the same date every year, 6 November. It’s a super significant date in the Stranger Things world too because it’s when Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) officially disappeared in the Upside Down in the first series, which aired in 2016.

Today marks the 36th anniversary of Will’s disappearance.
The character’s vanishing act took place in 1983 and was the catalyst for the whole franchise and it sparked the discovery of the horrifying Demogorgons and Mind Flayer.
Last year’s holiday saw Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Sadie Sink, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo and Noah share a video of them sending their wishes to fans.
This time around, the Netflix show has shared a heartwarming 36-second clip of all our favourite characters saying Will’s name, taken from snippets of all three seasons.
They really know how to treat us, huh?
Stranger Things supporters are hoping that bosses will release details of the upcoming fourth series, which was confirmed back in September.
‘We are absolutely thrilled to continue our relationship with Netflix,’ the Duffer brothers said at the time. ‘Ted Sarandos, Cindy Holland, Brian Wright, and Matt Thunell took a huge chance on us and our show – and forever changed our lives.
