The Emmy Awards Nominations are now live, and there are already several fan favorites making the list of nominees. That includes Netflix's beloved Stranger Things series, which has earned a nomination in the Best Drama Series category. This was a nomination for season 3 of Stranger Things, while season 4's release date is unknown. As for the competition, it's pretty stacked, going against The Crown (Netflix), Better Caul Saul (AMC), The Mandalorian (Disney+), Killing Eve (BBC America), The Succession (HBO), Ozark (Netflix), and The Handmaid's Tale (Hulu). The Mandalorian carries several nominations, but this is a big one, and titles like The Crown, Ozark, and The Succession could also very well walk away with the win, so we'll have to wait and see how things play out.

"It's 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer's heating up. School's out, there's a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group's dynamic, and they'll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town's threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they'll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear."
