Stranger Things 3

Stranger Things 3

After two years, Netflix is launching its much awaited Season 3 on Thursday. It will probably unravel the mystery of another world ‘Upside Down’ with demogorgons which will probably take over theirs, in a story that is set in the summer of 1985.

Inspired by Stephen King-like thrillers, the Season 1 of the series was an outright success but Season 2 did not match up to it. The eight episodes of third season might be the charm.

Jennifer Bisset from CNET believes that this is the best season of Stranger Things so far.

Arjun Reddy

Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy won accolades but were also criticised for ‘toxic masculinity’.
