As the series is just around the corner, here is a quick recap of the first season —

The boys (Mike, Lucas and Dustin) discovered that their friend, Will Byers, went missing while returning home after a routine game of Dungeons & Dragons. To find Will, they began searching through the woods and that's how they stumbled upon the mystery girl named Eleven.

Eventually, Eleven told the boys that she knows where Will is. And, she revealed that there is a place called Upside Down where Will is trapped. The boys learned that Upside Down is nothing but a parallel universe which exists in the town of Hawkins and filled with some monstrous creatures like Demogorgon.

Throughout the first season, the boys try to locate the gate to the Upside Down with the help of Eleven and her psychokinetic power. On the other hand, Will's mother Joyce and chief Sheriff Hopper were looking high and low to trace the missing Will.

The forthcoming season, which takes place during the Halloween of 1984, will see the boys battling with the Shadow Monster. Last season they had a face-off against the Demogorgon.
