The final trailer and a short guide to what’s going down in ‘Stranger Things’ Season 2

[Warning: Spoilers ahead]

After defeating the big bad of Season 1, the Eggos-loving heroine finds her way back to the sleepy town of Hawkins, Indiana—stopping first to retrieve a stash of her favourite waffles in the woods. Eleven sports a new head of curls and a rugged get up replaces her signature pink dress, as she is seen at the doorway of the house supposedly belonging to her biological mother, Terry Ives.


The arduous search party that spanned the entire first edition of Stranger Things finally uncovered the missing boy in its conclusion. Unfortunately, it seems that by coming back, Will Byers has also dragged the underworld along with him. By the looks of his mother desperately screaming, “What is wrong with my boy?” in the trailer and the many wide-eyed, terror-stricken looks that flashed throughout its three-minute reel, safe to say, walls between worlds are crumbling. The Upside Down is now right side up.


A handful of new characters will be introduced this coming season. First, have a think: If Eleven’s name is clue to her position in a line up, it begs the question, “Who were numbers one to ten?” It has been hinted that a character by the name of Roman will soon make an appearance and might bring with her a similar set of horrific experiences (and abilities) courtesy of the Hawkins Laboratory. Also spotted, an unfamiliar redhead running around with the boys. We don’t know much besides that she’ll be playing a girl called Max.


The gang of adults too, will enjoy the company of a couple of newcomers. Sean Astin of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Goonies’ fame will join the cast as Bob Newby and Joyce Byers’ love interest. #JusticeForBarb may actually go from trending to happening as Barb’s father enters the picture to investigate and possibly avenge her disappearance.


Prepare yourself for all of the above and more come 27 October, when the entire series lands on Netflix.
