The cast of “Stranger Things” won the 2017 SAG Award for Best Drama Ensemble, but off the top of your head are you able to name anyone besides Winona Ryder and Millie Bobby Brown? No worries, we’ve got you covered! Check out our handy-dandy cheat sheet photo gallery above highlighting the entire “Stranger Things” Season 1 cast, including where you’ve seen these young actors and actresses before.
Season 1 of “Stranger Things” debuted July 15, 2016 on Netflix and became an instant hit, even going on to win the top prizes at the Producers Guild Awards and SAG Awards. Next up are the Emmy Awards, however by the time voting begins this summer it will have been an entire year since the show premiered.
With Season 2 confirmed to stream October 31, 2017, will that make “Stranger Things” out of sight, out of mind and hurt its Emmy chances? Year-long breaks don’t always hurt shows, just look at “Orange is the New Black” which streams a new season every summer right as Emmy balloting begins. But for “Stranger Things” to go a whopping 15 months between seasons seems like a bit of an awards gamble for this freshman thriller.
Creators the Duffer Brothers (Matt and Ross Duffer) recently confirmed to Gold Derby that Season 2 will be composed of nine episodes instead of eight, admitting, “It just worked out story-wise. We needed one extra.” Based on other spoilers, we know that the second season will take place at the end of 1984, about a year after the events of Season 1.
