For the past several weeks, Netflix has been releasing tribute posters that use “Stranger Things” Season One imagery to pay homage to ’80s film posters, and we’ve been absolutely loving them. At the same time, the posters are merely fun for social media, rather than official Season Two art.
Today, however, Netflix has dropped a brand new official Season 2 poster, which pays homage to Close Encounters from the Third Kind (as well as a scene in Season 1 of “Stranger Things” that also, well, paid tribute to Close Encounters)!
Find it below.
In the second season…
“It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.”
The cast includes Paul Reiser, Brett Gelman, Linnea Berthelsen, Dacre Montgomery, Will Chase, Rob Morgan, and Sadie Sink. They join the returning Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, and Charlie Heaton.
“Stranger Things” Season 2 premieres October 27.
