Stranger Things (2016– )
Back in 2003, SNL was fine, but not exactly groundbreaking, and sketch comedy was hard to find anywhere else on TV. So when comedian Dave Chappelle unveiled his Comedy Central sketch show, it felt like a bomb went off: No other show felt so current, or so vital.

Both parties are now fully focused on their successor series, Fantastic Beasts, which is poised to continue through The Crimes of Grindelwald this November. But no matter what the future holds for Rowling’s rich world of witchcraft and wizardry, Daniel Radcliffe will forever be associated with the Boy Who Lived – for better or worse.
Because two decades ago, Radcliffe landed the role of a lifetime, even if he was initially taken aback by Warner’s decision. At the time, casting director Janet Hirshenson stressed that other Potter candidates were “not going to have the balls” for it, while Radcliffe, in typically self-deprecating fashion, believed he was “not the most gifted child actor.”
