This Month’s Highlight

Stranger Things 4: Volume 1

What’s stranger than Stranger Things is the fact that we’ve waited years for the next season of this show. These teens aren’t getting any younger! (Sorry, it’s the truth.) Thankfully, we’ll get at least half a season by the end of this month as Eleven, Mike, Will, Lucas, Dustin, and Max face whatever new horror the Upside Down has for them. (Streaming May 27.)
