The hit Netflix horror series, Stranger Things, has amassed a large following since its debut in mid-July of this year. The investigation into the mysterious disappearance of a young boy in the sleepy town of Hawkins unearths a world of conspiracy theories, psychics, and supernatural monsters. Despite the circumstances, the program shows extremely tender moments between the characters and solid group dynamics. Both thrilling and horrifying, the eight episode series left fans eager to find out more. Luckily, the show has been officially green-lit for a second season, which is set to premiere in 2017.
Even though the main monster of the series has been vanquished, and life in Hawkins seems to have returned to normal, there are still a lot of unanswered questions remaining. The nature of the Upside-Down and why it is so much more gruesome than a traditional parallel world has not been fully touched upon. Some characters, including several fan favorites, are still unaccounted for. The final scenes of the first season reveal that the supernatural still has a hold on the town and that the adventure is far from over.
So far, the brief preview shows that the story is set to take place in the fall of 1984, a little over half a year after the happenings of the first season. It also reveals nine episode titles: “Madmax,” “The Boy Who Came Back to Life,” “The Pumpkin Patch,” “The Palace,” “The Storm,” “The Pollywog,” “The Secret Cabin,” “The Brain,” and lastly, “The Lost Brother.” There has been no further information as to what the plot of the second season is, or which characters are slated to return, so the mystery is bound to keep people guessing and excited for more.
