Second Season of Stranger Things is Coming!

Things are getting stranger and stranger as 21 Laps Entertainment and Monkey Massacre releases the date for the second season of Stranger Things. As of now, the Netflix original series is set to premier season 2 on October 27, 2017. Much like the first season, the show is set to bring in several twists and teasers inspired by successful movies such as Poltergeist, The Stand, and E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. What has people currently raging is the new poster (shown above) that was recently released. Fans have already made ties to many of Stephen King's posters for his horror works' as well:

The first season had quite its share of accomplishments. According to Symphony Technology Group, Stranger Things had a ratings average of about 14.1 million adults between the ages 18-49 in the U.S. within just the first 35 days of its release. Because of this, it was deemed the third most-watched season on the app out of all of Netflix's original content. Rotten Tomatoes, a very strict and critical review site, as well as IGN (Imagine Games Network), gave the series a 95% approval rating, followed by a score of 8.1/10. Based off of how favorable the first episodes were, it is only expected that the next chapter will reap the same results.

What we know so far about season 2, based off of the teaser trailer released in August of 2016, is that the story will take place during the Halloween holiday season of 1984. The description of the season 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." It's going to be quite a thrill to see what's in store for our young cast members, which is now only a few months away. And of course, the freaks only come out at night, but the spooks and scares are just around the corner. Strange things are coming sooner than we think!
