Netflix to Pull Down Smoking Scenes in Season 3 of “Stranger Things”

Have you ever watched a series and felt like something has been overdone? Well, other series there are words that have become cliches in every episode. For the new season of “Stranger Things” that will be in Netflix, cigarette moments have to be cut down.

Netflix knows the new season of Stranger Things is making your mouth water for a cigarette (and Burger King and strawberry 7-11 slushies and malls…), and for that, they are sorry enough to limit depictions of smoking in original programming going forward.

The announcement came after the anti-smoking organization Truth Initiative took the streaming platform to task for all the cigarettes in Stranger Things Season 2.

“Netflix strongly supports artistic expression,” a spokesperson said in a statement to Variety. “We also recognize that smoking is harmful and when portrayed positively on screen can adversely influence young people.”

As such, Netflix vows to scale back cigarette and e-cigarette use in original programming rated TV-14/PG-13 or lower, only allowing its depiction for “reasons of historical or factual accuracy.” They will also reportedly include information about depictions of smoking along with each production’s rating.

Some of the programs are viewed by under 14 hence could lead to moral degradation. Is there any series you are following on Netflix that you feel it is overrated?
