Stranger Things Season 2: Netflix has renewed breakout hit Stranger Things for a second season. It’ll air in the year 2017 and will have nine episodes. Earlier the Duffer Brothers had talked about their motivation behinds season 1 and what we can expect to see in Stranger Things season 2. So the news hardly comes as a surprise.
The supernatural drama has become arguably the buzziest series of the summer, although some feared that series may not make it to another season or would be pushed back a year or two (like BBC Sherlock). EW talked to the Duffer Brothers about Stranger Things 2 and they informed that they are just about to deliver the first episode script to Netflix. ”We’re really excited about continuing the story,” said Matt Duffer. “There’s a comfort factor in that we know people love and have responded to this world and these characters. As much as possible, we’re trying to approach it the same as season one, which is to write stuff that we’re excited about and we think is cool. The hope is that it translates to the fans and that people fall in love with it again.”
For those who don’t know what Stranger Things is about, it’s an American supernatural horror web television series that follows the disappearance of a young boy, and a telekinetic girl who helps his friends in their search, while the boy’s older brother, mother and the town police chief start their own investigations. The show is set in 1980s Indiana and is an homage to ’80s pop culture.
In the first season, it starred Winona Ryder (her first major TV role) alongside David Harbour, Matthew Modine, Finn Wolfhard, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, Noah Schnapp, Millie Brown, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Joe Chrest, Joe Keery, Rob Morgan, Ross Partridge, Shannon Purser, John Paul Reynolds, Mark Steger and Chris Sullivan. No casting has been confirmed for Stranger Things season 2.
