Ever since it became the surprise hit of 2016, Netflix’s Stranger Things has enjoyed success on so many levels. Not only do audiences love it, but it’s become critically acclaimed and won an award at the Screen Actors Guild for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. Not bad for a show which was released in a year when Netflix put out an astonishing 126 original films and TV programmes.
Now in 2017 the streaming service put out an all-too-brief TV spot during the Super Bowl, which gave us pretty much nothing but it was still exciting to see our new tiny heroes reunited. They aren’t stopping there. Today we’ve been given new images and some potential plot details about season 2.
In these images we see the cast returning to face what the Upside Down is. The new season takes place a year after the events of the first one and the confirmed plot details we have include the fact that this takes place a year after the events of the first one and the darkness is still beneath even though things seem to have gotten back to normal. However, it’s been claimed that the show will also explore what physical and psychological traumas Will went through during his time in the Upside Down and some possible flashing images of what he saw. Sounds very interesting and smart way to go. One of the most intriguing aspects of the show is alternative dimension of which we didn’t see very much at all so to explore this deeper an potentially show the audience images of this is very clever.
The whole cast is returning, including worried mother Winona Ryder who is getting a real love interest in newcomer Sean Astin. We also see the return of awesome cop David Harbour who is keeping the events of the Upside Down to protect the family and the town from the unknown. Stranger Things returns to Netflix on October 31st.
Keep. It. Reel
