On Thursday, Netflix took over the San Diego Comic-Con with a panel highlighting two major productions, Death Note and Bright. Friday, however, was dedicated to their hit series “Stranger Things”, returning for a second season on October 27. The streaming service surprised fans with a special experience that not only took them from San Diego to Hawkins but also brought in stars Caleb McLaughlin, Finn Wolfhard and Gaten Matarazzo to take photos with fans!
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.
Finn Wolfhard recently teased that Season 2 will be “darker” and “more horror oriented“ than the first one.
A new monster is arriving in the town of Hawkins 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!
Confirmed for the second season are 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.
