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.
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.
