Stranger Things Season 2
What is perhaps the biggest thing to come out of San Diego Comic Con today has nothing to do with a big screen franchise, but rather the small screen adventures of a small group of pre-teens who know all too well what’s lurking in the dark. For the kids of Hawkins in 1984, horror is about to look them right in the eyes as they’re forced to concede that things are not as normal in their town as they appear. In other words, this October, they will have to fight for their lives inside a killer, thriller night called Stranger Things 2. (more…)
Stranger Things, last year’s nostalgia-driven cultural phenomenon is already coming back for a second season. After all, we need to see more of Eleven, the guys, and the Upside Down, right? Plus Barb need justice! The second season of the show is currently in production and the cast and crew are hard at work bringing us 9 new episodes this summer (hopefully).
We cannot get enough of Stranger Things! The Netflix sleeper hit that came this summer gave us the perfect storm of nostalgia, sci-fi, horror, and just good old storytelling done well! It’s no surprise that the show would get greenlit for a second season as we want to see what will happen in the lives of Will, Mike, Eleven, and the gang as more mysteries of the Upside Down get explored. We already know that most of the gang will be returning for the second season, and the show will also be adding three new characters on the show named Max, Billy, and Roman. The show already had 80’s heavyweight Winona Ryder, and it looks like they will be adding a few more heavyweights for the second season.
While historically some of its movie libraries have not been so great, Netflix has been killing it with its original Series programming. With such dynamic shows as House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, and Bojack Horseman, the streaming service is slowly becoming a TV powerhouse with just as many (if not more) subscriptions as HBO and other premium channels. Of course, you can’t forget their partnership with Marvel Television bringing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and it will soon bring Iron Fist and The Defenders next year. But Netflix once again changed the game with Stranger Things.
