Why Young And Old Audiences Are Hooked To Stranger Things?
Filled with suspense, fear, and joy plus a psychokinetic bald girl that loves waffles — Netflix’s Stranger Things has got young audiences hooked on to it and probably fans across all age groups now.
The characters have grown with the series seasons and their love story continues to enchant young audiences. The innocent love connection and cute moment of Mike and EL have captivated a generation of young viewers who have followed the series and can’t miss a moment of it.
Millie Bobby Brown who started as a eight-year-old as charater Eleven, is all set to hold the clue Stranger Things is likely to end in its planned last season if not more. Brown, who was best known for her role on BBC’s Intruders, portrays a mysterious character that Mike meets in the woods, who possesses strange abilities.
Eleven’s nose bleeds every time she uses her powers and the bleeding worsens, if it’s a particularly challenging feat at hand. The ability to nose bleed on demand thanks to corn syrup, captures the imagination of young audiences. Older audiences growing up in the 80’s have also been very approving of the production.
It’s masterfully written and gives a tribute to everything that made the 1980s a great moment in modern history. Therefore, it propelled into being a huge phenomenon apart from Netflix’s distribution advantage. The combination of sci-fi and fantasy with young teenage characters, that gives it a feel of a Steven Spielberg movie like ET.
Stranger Things: Strange Future
With Stranger Things already a proven money-maker, there is always a chance that it may continue to run for another season or two in some or the other form. In the last season Eleven
loses all her powers of telepathy and ability to move things at her will.
It is to be seen if the current season will end with Eleven gets back all she has lost and, in the process, solve the mystery of Upside Down and new demons it holds. She may also end up meeting Jim Hopper (David Harbour) again, who sacrificed himself at the gate to the Upside Down or as some indicate — was more likely captured by the Russians.
The mystery is only going to deepen this season. But for sure this season, will be setting up the premise to extend the Stranger Things franchise in one or another way.
Mike And Eleven: Where Are They Moving On
Millie Bobby Brown has vowed to stick with Netflix Stranger Things to the end and is likely to get her own series. The other cast members are also starting to branch out into movies. So she may well be continuing to play Eleven stepping out of the shadows of Mike played by Finn Wolfhard.
Finn Wolfhard co-stars as Mike, a bullied 12-year-old who becomes an unlikely hero in the quest to save his best friend. Finn has become a star on his own rights and may not want to continue with Stranger Things for long.
A Justin Bieber like career trajectory with his own music stint is already underway for him. Millie herself is all set to play a character of a Sherlock homes sibling in a new series — she is producing at her young age of 15.
