Let’s just get this out of the way up front: Yes, the highly-anticipated second season of Stranger Things is coming to Netflix in October. If you’re a fan of the ’80s throwback sci-fi series, that’s probably the only new release you’re thinking about right now...
Who needs Comic-Con? Netflix’s Stranger Things may debut new looks at Season 2 from their San Diego perch, but our first poster for the new big bad is right here, along with an earlier October premiere than expected.
Not much is known of the second season of Stranger Things, but – then again – Season 1 didn’t offer terribly many answers. At least one thing’s for sure: if you thought the Demogorgon was scary, producer Shawn Levy says the giant threat of Stranger Things 2 will make the gangly monster seem “quaint” by comparison.
Netflix is keeping understandably quiet on Stranger Things 2, but one wonders if we’ll endure the same wait for an official renewal as before. At the very least, the Duffer brothers seem to be overflowing with ideas, as director Shawn Levy claims portions of Season 2 had to be trimmed for a potential third season.
While there’s no official release date yet (although it’s rumored to hit in 2018), Deadpool 2 is gearing up to start filming pretty soon. We don’t know much about the plot or any new characters other than the fact that Cable is going to be in it, which is something we’ve known since the first Deadpool movie teased it after the credits. But as to who’s playing Cable, it’s anyone’s guess at this point as the movie is only just starting to round out their cast. A few days ago, Deadpool’s creator Rob Liefeld wanted Russell Crowe to play the part, which was probably just a bit of industry fancasting. But now we know that one of the names on the list of possibilities is none other than Stranger Things’ David Harbour.
No one was particularly surprised that Netflix would come through with a Season 2 renewal for Stranger Things, though they took things a step further to reveal all nine of its cryptic Season 2 episode titles. Or did they? Creators admit that the final products may end us with different names than the ones we’ve spent months speculating over, precisely because we’ve spent months speculating over them.
Sunday’s Stranger Things Season 2 Trailer premiere gave us quite a bit to chew on, but the Halloween premiere is going to the next year pretty torturous. Thankfully, even more new photos have emerged, as well as plot details for the ambitious new year, and even a hint at what new creatures we might be seeing.
As if 2017 weren’t already strange enough, Stranger Things will be kicking off the countdown to Season 2 this very Super Bowl Sunday. A first photo from the sequel season sees the gang decked out in Ghosbusters regalia, with the promise of an official Stranger Things 2 teaser during the big game.
Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer original cut their teeth with FOX’s M. Night Shyamalan-produced Wayward Pines, and now the Sixth Sense and Split director may be looking for them to return the favor. By his own admission, Shyamalan is game to direct an episode of Stranger Things, but is it already too late?
One of the things we learned in our extensive look at Stranger Things’ Demogorgon concept art was just how much engineers thought to realize the creature practically. Now, gruesome behind-the-scenes photos and videos from production show just how the Upside Down monster looked as a terrifying physical effect.
Whatever holiday you celebrate in December, it comes with a lot of pressure. If you get that special someone the wrong gift, watch out. Things can get pretty ugly. That’s particularly true for pop-culture fans. They know what they want, and they probably have most of it already. Perhaps you know someone like this. Perhaps you are someone like this. (Perhaps I am someone like this.)
It wasn’t much of a surprise to learn that Stranger Things breakout Millie Bobby Brown would break out of the Upside Down for Season 2, but not even Demogorgons can stop our first big reunion. See for yourself, as new and returning cast assembles in the first production photo of Stranger Things Season 2.
Netflix’s Stranger Things left only a few burning questions for Season 2, but perhaps chief among them was the fate of Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven. No one in their right mind thought Season 2 would proceed without its Eggo-loving telekinetic, but rest assured that Stranger Things won’t be bereft of Eleven for very long.
As if all the Halloween costumes weren’t enough, Netflix is going to make sure Stranger Things stays on your mind. Case in point, a new video (is it still a viral promo after the fact?) teases the local news reaction to Barb’s famous disappearance, while Sheriff Hopper gets ready to go back to work.
