A Stranger Things Super Bowl spot offers a tease of season two!
Netflix has brought online the new Stranger Things Super Bowl spot, which gives us our first look at season two! The second season, which will premiere on Halloween 2017, is set a year after Will’s return, and everything seems back to normal… but a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins.
Stranger Things Season 2 will star Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine. New cast additions include Sadie Sink (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Dacre Montgomery (the Red Ranger in the upcoming Power Rangers movie), Brett Gelman (Blunt Talk, The Other Guys), newcomer Linnea Berthelsen, and ’80s icons Sean Astin (The Goonies) and Paul Reiser (Aliens).
Stranger Things Season 2 will consist of 9 episodes set in 1984. Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines, Hidden) serve as writer, directors and co-showrunners of the series, and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (The Spectacular Now, Night at the Museum, Real Steel, Date Night).
“We obviously have this gate to another dimension, which is still very much open in the town of Hawkins,” Ross Duffer told EW last year. “And a lot of questions there in terms of, if the Monster is dead, was it a singular monster? What else could be out there? We really don’t go in there much until they go in to find Will at the end. So we’ve opened up this doorway, and to us it’s exciting to talk about, like, what else is behind there? There’s a lot more mystery there to be solved.”
The first season of Stranger Things proved to be a hit with critics and audiences alike. Most recently, the Stranger Things cast took home a Screen Actors Guild Awards for “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series”.
