In just over a month since it debuted, Netflix's Stranger Things has become a massive hit. Fans have already been clamoring for Season 2 of this supernatural mystery series, which was essentially confirmed by a Netflix executive recently, although an official announcement has yet to be made. While we wait for this new season, fans can have some fun by creating their own title cards with the 80s-infused Stranger Things font.
A new website has surfaced entitled MakeItStranger.com, where fans can type in anything they please to make their own custom title card. However, this format is somewhat limited, since you can only have one line on top and another on the bottom, and they don't allow you to use the space bar to separate multiple words on one line. So if you're planning on using this for an elaborate message in this format, it may not be the best thing ever, but it's still quite fun to use.
The website was put together by Nelson Cash, who wrote an extensive blog on the history behind this font, which is quite similar to the font used in several iconic Stephen King books from the 1980s. Of course, the show itself is set in the year 1983, and is described by Netflix itself as a "love letter" to the 1980s, and anyone who grew up in this decade can immediately identify several of the themes and tropes at play. We even shared a video a few weeks ago which showcases all of the 1980s movies and TV shows referenced by Stranger Things, side by side.
As for Stranger Things Season 2, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings recently commented that the streaming service would be "stupid" if they didn't issue a renewal for Stranger Things, but nothing is set in stone quite yet. The first season spanned eight episodes, and it isn't known if there are plans for an extended second season. We even reported earlier this month that Adam F. Goldberg, who created ABC's hit comedy The Goldbergs, which is also set in the 1980s, wants to do a crossover episode.
Series creators Matt and Ross Duffer have teased that Season 2 would be a continuation of the hit first season, although it isn't known if they have already started writing the new season quite yet. If Netflix does issue a Season 2 renewal, it will most likely return sometime next summer. While we wait for more details, take a look at one example of the title cards you can create for Stranger Things.
