(PCM) The news we have been anxiously waiting for has finally arrived! Netflix has officially give the green light to “Stranger Things” season two. The new season will make it’s premiere sometime in 2017.
Following the announcement and release of a all-new teaser trailer, EW.com spoke with the Duffer Brothers to get some further insight into the upcoming season. The Duffers confirmed that the storyline will continue to take place in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, however there may be a few scenes/scenarios that take place outside of the town in the new season. They teased that the opening scene of the new season takes place somewhere else outside of Hawkins.
The story will also pick up almost exactly one year later in November of 1984. Ross Duffer told EW, “I don’t think we ever thought anthology. I think we talked like a larger time jump where the kids are older now and it’s a different decade. That’s something we batted around from the very beginning. But for us, there’s still more story here [in the 1980s], there’s still things that are unresolved.” So, expect to see the return of Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Joyce (Winona Ryder), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), etc. “We don’t know about Eleven. We leave that up in the air.”
The brothers also revealed that there will be four new characters introduced in the second season and there will be nine episodes. It appears that the words featured in the teaser trailer are the titles of season two episodes.
