According to IMDB, Stranger Things Season 2 will be released in July and if we follow the pattern of other Netflix releases that means we will get all of the eagerly awaited episodes in one shot.
Thanks to earlier press releases, we already know that there will be nine episodes;
- The Boy Who Came Back To Life
- The Pumpkin Patch
- The Palace
- The Storm
- The Pollywog
- The Secret Cabin
- The Brain
- The Lost Brother
The second episode title is ‘The Boy Who Came Back To Life’, which corresponds with the headline of a newspaper clipping we saw in the season one finale letting us know that it will be focused around Will Byers.
We’ve already been told that the second season will pick up exactly where the previous season stopped, so we can definitely expect more based around the slug vomit and Will.
We will have six new characters
Max played by Sadie Sink
Billy played by Dacre Montgomery
Bob Newby played by Sean Astin
Dr. Owens plays by Paul Reiser
Roman played by Linnea Berhelsen
And the eighth character we’ve been told about is Murray Bauman played by Brett Gelman, who does not appear in the cast list for episode one and does not have Stranger Things listed on his IMDB credits yet. This makes me wonder when his character comes in and how pivotal a role it really is?
According to Director Shawn Levy, “Will Byers was in that Upside Down for a while. So Season 2 is about this determined desire to return to normalcy in Hawkins, in the Byers family, in that group of friends, and it’s the struggle to reclaim normalcy and maybe the impossibility of it.”
He also told Slashfilm: “I’ll just say that a lot of the big mysteries get answered at the end of Season 1, but we are very much kind of unearthing new problems and questions that merit future stories and future investigation in the most enjoyable way. So we are in love with our cast and our characters.”
I can’t wait until July to see what the new season truly has in store for us.
