It has been a long wait, but Stranger Things fans will finally get to head back to the Upside Down as the supernatural series returns to Netflix UK with the first volume of its extended fourth season. Expect terrifying beasties, plenty of 1980s nostalgia and the arrival of Freddy Krueger actor Robert Englund as convicted murderer Victor Creel.

Elsewhere on the streamer, the world of The Boss Baby continues to expand with new animated spin-off series Back in the Crib, while Mike Myers returns to his multiple-character roots with new comedy series The Pentaverate.

On the movie front, there's Our Father — a skin-crawling true crime documentary about a sickening sperm donor scam — and the Rebel Wilson comedy Senior Year, about a woman who decides to return to high school after spending 20 years in a coma due to a cheerleading accident.
