Here’s What We Know About ‘Stranger Things’ Season 2 So Far..
The second season of Stranger Things is still Stranger Things, “but just sorta hopped up a little. It’s almost like season 1 was drinking a Coke and season 2 they drank a Red Bull.” – Finn Wolfhard (who plays Mike Wheeler)
There are only five more days until season 2 of ‘Stranger Things’ premiers!
Are we excited yet?
Like everyone else, I have been waiting for this next season for what feels like forever.
Here’s what we know about the new ‘Stranger Things’ so far:
- The Whole Cast Will Be Back (Including Eleven!)
- It’s one year later – A year has passed since the last time we caught up with the cast. It’s Halloween 1984, Joyce is dating someone new – some of us remember him from The Goonies. 😉 (Nice touch, guys)
- There will be new characters joining the show to include Max and Billy. Max (played by Sadie Sink) is described as a “tough and confident 13-year-old female.” Billy (played by Dacre Montgomery) is her stepbrother, a “super muscular, overconfident 17-year-old.”
- Season 2 Will Be More Like a “Horror” Show – Season 2 is going to be “Darker”. Will is still in a strange place (no pun intended) emotionally, experiencing PTSD after his visit to the Upside Down, and the kids just can’t seem to stay away from the place.
- We can anticipate bigger monsters and perhaps a giant “creature”.
- Season 2 will play out like a movie sequel
- The episode titles for the first six episodes:
- “Trick or Treat Freak”
- “The Pollywog”
- “Will the Wise”
- “Dig Dug”
- “The Spy”
The last three episode titles are unknown, but here’s what was originally listed:
- “The Secret Cabin”
- “The Brain”
- “The Lost Brother”
- Season 3 is a definite YES – We know that the show is already coming back for a third season. It doesn’t have a release date yet but I am pretty sure we’ll be seeing these kids for at least 4 seasons. Ross Duffer teased the possibility of a fourth season earlier this year, telling Vulture, “We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out.” Matt Duffer added: “We just have to keep adjusting the story. Though I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year.”
Watch Season 2 premier of Stranger Things this Friday night on Netflix!
