Netflix Tease ‘Stranger Things’ Season 2, Announce Release Date | TV News
Season 1 of Stranger Things was a hit among Netflix viewers when released last summer, so fans will be delighted to hear that Season 2 will arrive this October in time for Halloween. Netflix, and the Stranger Things team, yesterday tweeted a poster and teaser trailer for the upcoming season that will see the residents of Hawkins again having to tackle the mysterious forces in their midst.

The poster suggests fans should certainly expect more peril to come. The official Season 2 description reads: “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.
1984 seems to be of some significance, opening the teaser trailer in neon red lighting. Perhaps its a nod to George Orwell‘s 1984, promising dystopia and a big brother type theme. It wouldn’t be the first source of inspiration for creators Matt and Ross Duffer; Season 1 paid homage to the likes of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial and Poltergeist, and the new teasers are very Stephen King in style.

The show’s stars – Winona Ryder, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, and Gaten Matarazzo – return to the series alongside new additions including Will Chase and Brett Gelman. The show is yet to receive an Emmy award, having missed out on the cut off last year. However, with this year’s nominations to be announced July 13, I expect Stranger Things will prove its worth.
Stranger Things Season 2 will arrive on Netflix October 27.
