19 Facts Even The Biggest 'Stranger Things' Fans Probably Didn't Know About This Phenomenon

Since the new season of "Stranger Things" has been out, there have been many new and interesting facts revealed about the "Stranger Things" plot! The producers are very creative; let’s see if you knew or noticed these 19 facts about "Stranger Things!"

1. It was created by twin brothers Matt and Ross Duffer.

2. The show was originally called Montauk.

It took place on Long Island in 1980, but the Duffers had to change the show's location when they realized it would be too difficult to shoot there in winter.

3. The Montauk Project inspired the show.

It was about a government experiment that took place in the 80s and involved kidnapping children from Long Island to experiment on them. Read more about it here.

4. The Upside Down’s real name is called the Nether.

But they got so used to calling it the "Upside Down" on set, it stuck, Millie Bobby Brown revealed in "Beyond Stranger Things." The same thing happened with the Shadow Monster in Season 2; it's supposed to be called the Mind Flayer.

5. Joyce’s Hairstyle was inspired by Meryl Streep in Silkwood.

6. Steve was supposed to be “the biggest douchebag on the planet.”

Joe Keery was much more likable and charming than they all envisioned, so they changed his character a bit.

7. Millie Bobby Brown once showed up to set covered in glitter.

It held up production for a half hour.

8. They used 1,200 pounds of Epsom salts to get Brown to float in a kiddie pool.

9. An average of 8.8 million people watched "Stranger Things 2" in its first three days on Netflix. And, 361,000 people watched all nine episodes in its first 24 hours.

10. Dacre Montgomery danced shirtless to “Come on Eileen” in his audition tape for Stranger Things 2.

11. Bob was supposed to die much earlier in Season 2.

But they liked him so much they kept him alive until episode 8 instead. And originally, Will was supposed to kill Bob!

12. Hopper's trailer reportedly only cost the art department $1 to buy.

13. The series was shot on a digital cinema camera, but to achieve the vintage look, they added a layer of scanned film grain to the coloring process.

14. The Duffer brothers have a 30-page document that maps what the Upside Down is and the nature of the monster.

15. The radio channel Hop uses to communicate with Eleven with is channel 11.

16. Mrs. Wheeler's romance novel cover was apparently photoshopped to look like Billy.

17. Speaking of Season 1, the scene where the kids are playing Dungeons & Dragons in the very first episode lines up creepily perfect with the Demogorgon scene in Episode 8.

18. The word "evil" is clearly written on the bathroom stall when Dustin finally finds Dart.
