Stranger Things fans enjoyed last Sunday during the Super Bowl 2017 broadcast of the first trailer for Season 2 of the series. And now the magazine Entertainment Weekly has released some details and images of its mysterious argument.
Netflix confirms that the story of the second season starts on Halloween in 1984, a year after the events shaped last season. That is the explanation of why the young protagonists dress like Ghostbusters.
Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) has resumed his life as before in Hawkings, Indiana, but still, has visions of the upside down dimension. One of the creators of the series, Matt Duffer, commented in Entertainment Weekly that Will suffers “something like PTSD.”
Will’s mother, Joyce (Winona Ryder), has an affair with an old high school classmate, Bob (Sean Astin, better known as Sam in The Lord of the Rings trilogy).
And police chief Jim Hopper (David Harbor) is trying to keep the Hawkins population from learning about the strange paranormal happenings in the village the previous year, such as Barb’s disappearance.
The brothers Wheeler, Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard) mourn the apparent death of Barb and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), making it difficult to adapt to a normal life. To this scene of well-known faces, the second season of Stranger Things will incorporate new characters, like the brothers Billy (Dacre Montgomery) and Max (Sadie Sink).
According to Entertainment Weekly, Max will awaken the romantic attention of Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Dustin (Gaten Mararazzo). Will they fight between them for Max’s sake?
Perhaps one of the most revealing data released by the creators of Stranger Things is the statement of Matt Duffer (writer and director of the series, along with his brother Ross) that one of the biggest threats to the protagonists will be human.
“In the stories of Stephen King, there are always great human villains. Evil in the real world is often worse than supernatural evil, so we wanted to introduce such a character.”

Of course, this does not rule out that, since the Upside Down universe remains open, new monsters will appear in Season 2 of Stranger Things, as was suggested inaccurately in the trailer.
When it premieres on Halloween, it seems to hope that the new episodes will be more terrifying than those of the first season. The nine episodes of Season 2 of Stranger Things will premiere on Netflix on October 31st.
