The first season of Stranger Things was a surprise success, which is why fans were excited upon learning that Stranger Things Season 2 has been renewed. The series, which is slated to arrive on Oct. 31 this year, just in time for the Halloween, will feature the same cast and a continuation of Season 1’s storyline.
We have seen the teaser trailer as one of the commercials for Super Bowl LI, so maybe now it’s time to break this down and speculate on what’s going to happen.
Eleven Will Be Back In Stranger Things Season 2
In case, you have missed it, watch the trailer of Stranger Things Season 2 again. Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) was there, with a close-up of her face as confirmation. This only confirms that she’ll be back in the show, and perhaps sooner than expected.
There were wild speculations earlier that we’ll only see Eleven in probably a mid-season finale. Her return, after all, has mostly been ambiguous because of the nature of how she disappeared (everyone thought she was sucked in by the demogorgons). The only clue we had was Chief Hopper (David Harbour) left some Eggo’s waffles atop a box in the middle of the forest.
The Season Is Set In 1984
It has earlier been revealed that Season 2 will be set in 1984, which explains why Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) is in Ghostbuster outfits. Oh, and they’re riding their bikes again.
This means they’re running again from something, right? In the trailer, it looks very much like the trio is cycling pretty fast away from something. What monsters did they uncover now?
A New Character Is Introduced
We are sure that a new character will be introduced to tidy up Hawkins after their run in with the demogorgons. What does tidying up means in the Upside Down world, however? A menacing figure was seen in the clip, so is this one part of that team sent to clean up Hawkins?
Everything Will Be In Secret Mode
If you don’t already know, executive producer Shawn Levy (director of Night at the Museum and producer of Arrival) reached out to Game of Thrones to learn security protocols. He told Entertainment Weekly, as quoted by Independent, that they didn’t have any security protocols last season.
Now, they are protecting every story point and every page of the script. Brown said the show and the characters have code names now on Stranger Things Season 2 script.
