I realize you may have tuned in to Fox or streaming tonight for the network's coverage of the Super Bowl (or halftime show), but some exiting entertainment-related things have gone down too. Hollywood gave us a look at some of the most exciting movies coming out in the near future, and more importantly for TV fans, Stranger Things Season 2 just dropped its first trailer. It's good too. The popular Netflix show looks to be positioning itself for a block of sequel episodes every bit as fascinating as the first effort. You can check out the Stranger Things Season 2 trailer below...
If you've been keeping tabs at all on Stranger Things over the past few days, you may have already seen a first look image from the trailer, which featured the kids from the show dressed up in Ghostbusters uniforms. (What a hook, I know.) We don't get a lot of footage from the upcoming season, although there are nods to Eggo waffle commercials from the time period and the aforementioned look at the Ghostbusters uniforms, not to mention a myriad of other, stranger stuff going on. The huge piece of information we get in the first Stranger Things Season 2 trailer is the premiere date, and we've just learned that the next set of episodes will hit Netflix's schedule on Halloween 2017.
We've known for a while that Stranger Things Season 2 would pick up in 1984, a year after the events that occurred during Season 1 actually transpired. Since we are expecting episodes to hit the schedule a little over a year later, the timeline seems pretty fitting. The show is also expected to "venture out" a little from the Indiana town the first season was set in. Other than that, we've only heard some vague things about what we can expect from the second season of the popular drama, which includes things like the creators being excited to "unearth" new problems in Hawkins, Indiana and apparently other areas. This first look is not excited about giving us a whole bunch of easy-to-read spoilers, but we're still pretty excited to see something more.
While it will still be quite a while before new episodes of Stranger Things officially hit the schedule, Netflix has been busy pushing out original content over the last several years and has already confirmed that the company wants to continue to produce more and more original programs in the future. If you'd like to take a look at what the network has coming up, check out our Netflix premiere schedule. Don't forget to tune in when Stranger Things returns for Season 2 on October 31 next TV season.
