Stranger Things is the Netflix show that has been all over the news (and our TV screens) as the second season was released back in October. If you’ve been living under a rock, it’s a nostalgic sci-fi/horror series focuses on four young boys and their involvement in a multi-dimensional investigation. However, it is one of those shows you really need to see (and not just read about) to fully appreciate. It is a fantastic show and one of the very best Netflix Originals ever offered by the streaming giant.
As you could probably guess, a show as good as this one is full of amazing characters. While some may get more screen time or be more important to the story than others, that doesn’t always mean they are more interesting. This article will take a look at who I believe are the 10 best characters in the first two seasons Stranger Things, and why. With so many amazing characters, it was difficult to choose only ten, so apologies if your favourite isn’t on the list!
10. Jonathan Byers
The oft forgotten Byers brother is one of the nicest characters on the show. Despite being a bit creepy at times, he has been a rock in the Byers household throughout all the craziness of the first two seasons of Stranger Things. He is a bit of an awkward guy and definitely an outcast, but has proven himself to be very important to the storyline at times. He seems like an overall good guy who wants the best for everyone. He deserves more praise for his role in helping everyone around him, from his brother to Nancy to Joyce, and everyone in between. With his romantic interest in Nancy being a big storyline going forward, we are excited to see what happens.
