    Stranger Things Season 2

    The GF and I were hooked on this back in Season 1, Now we are days away from the premiere of Season 2. Netflix Invested 8 million per episode so this is going to be a great season!

    ever since the first trailer for the Netflix series Stranger Things debuted, there was major buzz around the nostalgia-driven thriller about a group of kids in the 1980s who get caught up in a terrifying mystery involving a telekinetic girl, otherworldly dimensions, and a monster unleashed on their small town of Hawkins, Indiana. It ended up being so good that Stranger Things got us excited about TV again. It may just be the best Netflix Original yet.For those who binged their way through the first season, one of the biggest remaining mysteries was whether the acclaimed show created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer would indeed get a second season. Much to the delight of sci-fi fans of all kinds, that question has been answered, with a second season scheduled to premiere October 27, 2017 — near Halloween, of course.

    So what do we know about the show’s impending return? Here are all the details so far.

    Friday the 13th falls two weeks before the Stranger Things season 2 premiere, making it the perfect day to release a new trailer. Netflix plans to do just that — it announced in a teaser video on Thursday, October 12. The teaser offers a taste of what the trailer may reveal as it shows new glimpses at the upcoming season — 13 of them, to be exact.



    Episode titles, reprise

    In August 2017, Netflix released a video which revealed episode titles for the nine-episode second season of Stranger Things. Even then, though, the Duffers warned that the titles were subject to change. As it happens, those titles were indeed subjected to wholesale change, with none of the original titles remaining the same (though one did get moved up). On October 9, the official Stranger Things Twitter account shared a video with the updated episode titles (viewable below).

    According to Consequence of Sound, the episodes are called (in order):

    • Dragon’s Lair
    • Trick or Treat Freak
    • The Pollywog
    • Will the Wise
    • Dig Dug
    • The Spy

    Episodes seven, eight, and nine are not titled — they’re listed together in the video, along with a creepy monster hand slicing its way through the page. The titles themselves don’t reveal too much, though both Dragon’s Lair and Dig Dug are famous ’80s arcade games (which the boys will likely play at the Palace arcade), and ‘Will the Wise’ is the name of Will Byers’ Dungeons & Dragons character from season 1. It seems the second season will feature a renewed focus on gaming, which suits us just fine.
    1984 was a weird year

    A new teaser trailer for season 2 helps to ground the events of Stranger Things in reality … sort of, anyway. The trailer (viewable below) opens with a grainy news report on Will Byers’ (Noah Schnapp) season 1 disappearance (set in 1983), followed by the narrator listing off notable events that took place during 1984 (when season 2 takes place).

    The teaser (aptly titled 1984) seems to imply that the rift to the “upside down” — opened by Eleven in season 1 — is also responsible for the USSR’s boycott of the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, the introduction of “New Coke,” and a few other major happenings. We don’t get any new information about season 2, but it’s a fun play on the nostalgia that helps power Stranger Things.

    Stranger Things: The Game

    In early October 2017, Netflix launched a free-to-play Stranger Things mobile game (aptly titled Stranger Things: The Game), a top-down action RPG in the vein of the old Legend of Zelda games.
