On October 27, 2017, Netflix is set to release the second season of Stranger Things, the Freaks and Geeks of sci-fi shows. An unashamed send up to 1980s pop culture and films, Stranger Things managed to find something fresh, frightening, and surprisingly engaging in wall-to-wall nostalgia when it released in July 2016. More than 8 million people reportedly tuned in over just two weeks to find out what was going on in the dark recesses of Hawkins, Indiana. As you can imagine, that success has raised the expectations into the stratosphere (and judging from the first trailer, the budget has seen a similar increase). The showrunners at Stranger Things are trying to keep a close lid on the narrative, but they can’t keep everything a secret. We’ve searched high and low to find out anything and everything about the next season of Stranger Things; here it is.
1. Here’s What You Missed in the First Season
If you haven’t seen the first season of Stranger Things, then you’ll want to skip through to the next few slides, because the attached video is just chock full of good, old-fashioned spoilers. For those of you who have seen the first year in the lives of the Wheeler siblings and their oddball collection of buddies, this video might merit a quick scan. After all, a lot of weird stuff happened last Halloween and it has been a whole year. Readers can find extensive (and very fine) recaps of each episode from season one right here.
