It's important for any show to have a good soundtrack, but for a show set in the '80s, music is crucial.

John Levenstein wrote Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein, with Dan Longino as director. The special co-stars Berlant and Alfred Molina.

"I can't express how excited I am. 'Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein,' starring @DavidKHarbour, is coming to Netflix July 16th. Written by me, directed by @danlongino. Also starring @kateberlant, Alfred Molina and many more," Levenstein tweeted Wednesday.

Vulture said Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein follows Harbour's character after he uncovers lost footage from his father's televised stage play. The character explores the depths of his family's acting lineage to gain insight into his father's legacy.

Harbour plays Jim Hopper on the Netflix series Stranger Things. The show co-stars Winona Ryder and Millie Bobby Brown, and will return for a third season July 4.
