STRANGER THINGS, season two trailer


The second season of Stranger Things is making its way back to our TV screens this fall. Netflix's ’80s-inspired teaser for the second season of hit series Stranger Things was released at San Diego Comic Con by The Duffer Brothers and Netflix.

The series features returning stars Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers), David Harbour (Jim Hopper), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair), as well as an upgraded role for the person whose disappearance kick-started the whole show: Noah Schnapp as Will Byers.

We got our first glimpse of season 2 back in February during the Super Bowl. That brief teaser showed that the show was still mining the 1980s for nostalgic purposes, promising to turn the world upside-down, along with some bigger, stranger monsters.

This new trailer makes particularly effective use of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, using Vincent Price’s classic, funky voice over to stir up the horror that will take over our minds come fall. And, of course, the show isn’t done with Eleven yet, showing her pushing her way out of the upside-down back into our world.

In the first-season finale, Joyce and Hopper rescued Will from imprisonment in the Upside Down, a bleak world that exists simultaneously with our own world. But the nightmare wasn't over; indeed, Will brought some of the nightmare back home, vomiting miniature monsters into his bathroom sink. In a previous interview with The Hollywood Reporter, conducted in advance of production starting on season two, Schnapp expressed his desire to see Will take a darker villainous turn following his return from the Upside Down.

This, however, will not happen, as the trailer shows Will being tormented by his previous experience in the parallel universe. He won't turn dark, but he will have to fight the evil he has brought back.

Earlier this month, Netflix announced that it was bumping the show's return up by a couple of days to October 27th, releasing a poster that revealed that there’s still plenty of Stephen King references to look forward to.
