Netflix Announces Season 2 of 'Stranger Things'

In a not-so-strange turn of events, Netflix has renewed breakout hit "Stranger Things" for a second season, Variety has learned.

The news comes hardly as a surprise, as the supernatural drama has become arguably the buzziest series of the summer.

Of course, the first big question that Stranger Things Season 2 will need to answer surrounds the fate of Eleven. "Accompanied by the show's memorable theme music, the teaser reveals a list of mysterious phrases that are nearly certainly episode titles".

The teaser also reveals an unexpected time jump to "fall 1984", about a year after the first season.

Are you happy to hear that Stranger Things has officially secured a second season? It would simply be impossible that Netflix would start the first season cancellation with such a successful show.

Although there is now no word on the Season 2 cast, many key Season 1 characters such as Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Joyce (Winona Ryder), and Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) are expected to return. So far, nine episodes have been confirmed for Season 2.

Since its release on Netflix last month, Stranger Things has received widespread critical acclaim.

Stranger Things Season 1 is now streaming on Netflix. Information about the cast and plot aren't available, but Stranger Things season 2 has been in development for quite some time according to unnamed sources.

The show's creators, Matt and Ross Duffer (known collectively as The Duffer Brothers), have already revealed that the second season will "draw influence from a lot of [1984] cinema". Seeing as Season 1 ended in the winter of 1983, almost a year will have passed for Will Byers and his friends when Season 2 premieres.
