A variety of gravitational-wave stochastic backgrounds populate the sensitivity window of LISA: signals produced by galactic and extra-galactic binary systems, and relic gravitons generated in the early Universe. We review our present astrophysical understanding of the main sources, address the prospects of detection with LISA and discuss possible follow-on missions.
