On July 15, 2016 Netflix debuted a little show called “Stranger Things,” a drama series set in the 1980s about the supernatural occurrences surrounding the disappearance of a young boy. “Stranger Things” was an instant hit with fans and critics alike, even going on to win five Emmy Awards (Best Casting, Best Main Title Design, Best Main Title Theme Music, Best Picture Editing and Best Sound Editing), in addition to its victories at the SAG Awards and PGA Awards. Since those eight episodes initially streamed, fans have been clamoring for a second season. Well, it’ll be here sooner than you think.
“Stranger Things” Season 2 is set to premiere October 27, 2017 on Netflix, which turns out to be a whopping 469 days after its original debut. The good news about the extended hiatus is that we’ll be getting nine episodes this year, up from eight last season. The events of Season 2 will reportedly take place around Halloween of 1984, or roughly 33 years ago.
Many of the cast members are set to return for the second season, including Emmy nominee Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Emmy nominee David Harbour as Jim Hopper, Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler and Noah Schnapp as Will Byers.
Earlier this week on Friday the 13th, Netflix released one final trailer to give viewers a last tease of what they can expect in the new season. Apparently after being reunited with his family and friends, Will is now having apocalyptic visions connected to his time in the parallel dimension. Watch the “Stranger Things” Season 2 trailer.
