Netflix seems to be trying to build up the Stranger Things Season 1 hype before Season 2, and it’s doing it rather beautifully.
We’ve already seen Nancy Wheeler as Nancy Thompson in a very Nightmare On Elm Street-esque poster a couple of weeks ago. Now we’ve got the show’s band of misfit kids taking on Stand By Me, as well as Jim Hopper channelling Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Running Man.
You can read the very brief synopsis for Stranger Things Season 2 here:
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 show stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapps, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton and Joe Keery, with Sean Astin (The Goonies, The Lord Of The Rings), Linnea Berthelsen, Paul Reiser (Aliens, Whiplash), Sadie Sink (Odyssey) and Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers) joining the cast for Season 2.
Stranger Things Season 2 premieres globally on Netflix on 27 October 2017. Get all the latest sci-fi news with every issue of SciFiNow.
