The second season of Stranger Things is set a year after Will’s return, and everything seems back to normal… but a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins. It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

The series creators Ross and Matt Duffer chatted to EW about the new season.

When we started describing it as a sequel, Netflix was like, ‘Don’t do that, because sequels are known to be bad.’I was like, ‘Yes, but what about T2 and Aliens and Toy Story 2 and Godfather II?’ The good news is that a lot of what we wanted to see or what we responded to, that seems to be what the audience responded to. Like we fell in love with Gaten, and there were aspects, like Barb, we were already planning to deal with. It felt like there was a nice alignment between what we wanted to see and what other people wanted to see.

All roads eventually lead to the “shadow monster,” a nickname given to a giant creature Will first meets in PTSD-like visions of the Upside Down. “

It’s all connected to this singular threat, which is tied into this shape that Will sees in the sky.

Each episode is building on the last one. It gets much crazier than it ever got in season 1. We want people to argue about what season is better. I want the debate. I want the Toy Story debate!

Stranger Things Season 2 will star Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine. New cast members include Sadie Sink, Dacre Montgomery, Brett Gelman (Blunt Talk, The Other Guys), Linnea Berthelsen, Sean Astin (The Goonies) and Paul Reiser (Aliens).

The second season hits Netflix on 27th October 2017.
