Here’s the Comic-Con trailer for Stranger Things Season 2 and as you can probably tell things don’t stay normal for long in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana.
Expanding on the show’s mythology and delving deeper into the aftermath of the first season, this next chapter takes place about a year later. Will understandably suffers from some kind of PTSD (and is maybe having visions of things to come, very bad things), Mike is still mourning the loss of his friend Eleven, who we find out is very much alive and coming back to Hawkins. Generally no one is fine, despite trying to pretend they are. Also the rift to the Upside Down is still open, so you know bad things are coming their way sooner rather than later. It’s a very promising look at season 2 of Stranger Things without going too much into spoiler territory and I’m very glad for that. The less we know going in, the better.
The Duffer Brothers are once again showrunners and they directed four of the new season’s nine total episodes. Finding Nemo and Wall-E director Andrew Stanton helmed two episodes while Shawn Levy returned for another two (now up to four), leaving one to Rebecca Thomas (who like Andrew Stanton is new to the series). Starring in Season 2 are Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Sean Astin, Natalia Dyer, Finn Wolfhard and just about everyone who was still alive at the end of the first season.
All nine episodes of the new season of Stranger Things will debut October 27th on Netflix, just in time for Halloween.
