Stranger Things Season 2 Confirmed for 2017! Here’s What We Know

Turn it up to Eleven.

In a world of remade things from the ’80s, Netflix’s Stranger Things played on all the right nostalgia strings while bringing us something fun and new, and that’s left us clamoring for more after the first season’s end. Thankfully, Netflix is happy to oblige, and we now have confirmation that more Stranger Things (even stranger things?) is on the way for 2017.

Beyond that, however, details are scarce. Season two will take place over 9 episodes (compared to the first season’s 8) set in the fall of 1984, only a short while after season one, and series creators/writers Matt and Ross Duffer will return. None of the cast has been announced as returning, but many of them have expressed interest in keeping the story going, and the Duffers told Entertainment Weekly that they’re going to continue the same story, so all the major players should be back.

There will also be four new characters, and the 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 “The Lost Brother”) have been revealed in the teaser above to give us all something to speculate about rampantly. There will also be a little story outside the town of Hawkins, and yes, more of the Upside Down. Get excited!
