While Star Wars and The Avengers dominated the box office, a lot of television networks are looking to replicate big-screen success on the home theater market. Sci-fi used to be considered nerdy. Now, it’s one of the most popular and celebrated genres around. Most consumers watch their TV via streaming, true to the technology-focused stories they love. Here are some of the top sci-fi shows put out by streaming platforms.

Stranger Things

One of the biggest shows in the world right now is Netflix’s Stranger Things. The show is equal parts terror, nostalgia, humor, and awesome 80s synth music. However, the show’s greatest strength is its young cast filled with television’s brightest future stars. Speaking of stars, the next show is surprisingly full of them.
