Netflix Boss Promises That “Stranger Things” Season 2 Premiere Will Satisfy

The second season hits Netflix on October 31st, 2017.

What can we expect from the return of “Stranger Things” this Halloween? As teased in the Super Bowl spot, it looks like a (massive) new monster is arriving in the town of Hawkins, Indiana this coming season, which is set just about one year after the events of Season 1. Joyce Byers has a new boyfriend (played by Sean Astin!) and Eleven, well, she’s apparently still alive.

We’ve even learned that Dustin will have a pet monster from another dimension!

In a chat with NME, Netflix co-founder Reed Hastings and Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos spoke briefly about Season 2, revealing they’ve seen the premiere and are very happy with it.

Said Sarandos:

I have just seen the first episode of season two. It’s fantastic – it delivers on everything that every fan wants. We have a sense that it’s going to be really big.

You can revisit the Super Bowl spot below.

Confirmed for the second season are Sean Astin, Paul Reiser, Brett Gelman, Linnea Berthelsen, Dacre Montgomery, Rob Morgan, and Sadie Sink. They join the returning Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, and Charlie Heaton.



  • I didn’t love season 1 has much as most but have high hopes that season 2 can expand the mythology and delve away from the more generic storylines!

    (That teaser still remains one of the best I’ve ever seen. I flat out love it)

    Stranger Things wasn’t as good as everyone is saying. It was entertaining but owes most of it’s success to the fact that it premiered when everything else was on hiatus. It was something new so naturally everyone jumped on it. Then, alot of people had to ruin it by geeking out so bad that you became embarrassed to admit you enjoyed it. Season 2 will do well but I predict the novelty will quickly wear off.

    • I agree, with only 8 episodes, i was truly annoyed at how many gif sets, inside jokes (barb), and fan art it received from tumblr. The show also overexposed the underrated music genre of synth that alot of mainstream listeners grew attracted to, (but thats just me being an irritated hipster) lol

        Honey Pie, i respectfully disagree which is weird because i usually agree with/like almost anything you seem to like. 🙂
        but that’s cool. we all like different things. 🙂

        • Thats actually true, i agree with you alot too on topics. I did love stranger things but i think the fans ruined it a bit for me 🙂

      • Prince Of Darkness

        I enjoyed Stranger Things to an extent. I just don’t feel it was the life changing event that many believe it was.When people start adopting cats just so they can name them Barb or Eleven, you know the shit has gotten weird.

        • iM Vuze

          Yeah because people have NEVER named their animals/kids after a fictional character before Stranger Things lol.

    • J Jett

      you really are an unhappy person. you have such a stick up your ass regarding people enjoying/talking/”geeking out” over movies/shows/etc. and of course i disagree w/ everything you wrote out. the show is great IMO and it’s not because “everything else was on hiatus”. what i stupid claim to make.

      • Prince Of Darkness

        Let me guess – You are someone whose life is so empty and that you have become obsessed with this show. You probably watched it three times in the first few weeks it debuted. You have a major creepy Barb fixation as well. Your nickname as a kid was in fact Stranger Thing. You simply ADORE!!! Eleven. You watch it and wish that when you were a kid, you had a group of friends like the boys but in reality nobody could stand you. Awe look, wittle baby is outraged that someone was critical of his obsession.

        There was not a single original thing about Stranger Things. The entire series was lifted from the imagination of other people’s 80’s movies. It was entertaining but wasn’t ground breaking. People were starved for something new and different at a time when everything was re runs. I’m a grown man who remembers a time when people went to see movies without dissecting every frame of the trailer before hand. I remember when movies and shows didn’t need to be hyped to death to succeed. This is merely my opinion.

          Nah, I tend to agree with Jett. You can’t pin the sustainability of interest in the show on the audience’s boredom. It is a water-cooler show that people continue to discuss long after the period you are describing. Don’t like the show? Move on. Don’t dwell on your dislike by opening these articles, and move along.

          Also, your armchair psychoanalysis of Jett is cringey.


          • Prince Of Darkness

            The purpose of these forums is to comment – good or bad on anything that they cover. Nobody has any obligation to censor themselves to spare the feelings of a select few. ironically both of you are commenting on my OP. Maybe you should ignore my opinion and move along. In other words, go fuck your self righteous self. Yes, my psychoanalysis of Jett is cringey, but I bet most of it is true.
            I didn’t say Stranger Things owed everything to there being nothing else on. I said it owed alot to that fact. I enjoyed the show to an extent, but it did not, and does not, live up to the hype.

          • Travis

            Your opinion is not what instigated my response. It was your vitriolic personal attack on someone who disagreed, whereas he was responding only to your comment itself. Grow up and learn to have a civil discussion with someone who holds a contrary opinion to your own. Jesus Christ. I don’t give a shit about your Stranger Things hang-up, but you are acting like a shitty human being. Extracting myself now.

    i loved season 1 a lot and can’t wait for season 2!
