stranger things season 2

Stranger Things was one of Netflix’s biggest surprise hits last year and the ’80s-set supernatural series is taking its sweet time coming back to us. The genre hit by Matt and Ross Duffer won’t return until Halloween (which is rather appropriate), depriving us of more Stranger Things for another five months.

But Season 2 has officially wrapped production, and some on-set interviews interviews featuring cast members David Harbour (the grizzled Chief Hopper) and Finn Wolfhard (Mike, leader of the Dungeons and Dragons-playing preteens), as well as the Duffer brothers themselves, have been released. Let’s run through the highlights below! Oh, and someone on set also got a pretty cool Ghostbusters care package.

How Many Seasons Will ‘Stranger Things’ Last?

Stranger Things Season 2

The first season of Stranger Things got so much buzz and acclaim that a second-season renewal seemed like a foregone conclusion — even if it took Netflix a month and a half to get around to making it official. And based on the hype already building around season two, it seems possible that the next chapter of this story will be an even bigger hit than the last. If that’s the case, you can bet Netflix will re-up for season three before you can say “l’eggo my Eggo.”

But all good things have to end eventually, and that includes Stranger Things. Creators Matt and Ross Duffer have revealed that they have no intention of keeping their ’80s sci-fi thriller going forever. In fact, they’ve already given some thought as to where the series could go beyond season two — and when they would like the series to end. Below, find out how many seasons Stranger Things could last. Lest that news get you down, there’s also a new Stranger Things season 2 photo for you to enjoy.  Read More »

Stranger Things Season 2 - Dustin, Mike, Lucas, Will

As we learned over the weekend, Stranger Things season 2 isn’t actually coming for another nine months. But Netflix’s marketing team seems determined to make sure you spend every day between now and then longing to return to Hawkins, Indiana. Following the release of that first teaser trailer, a slew of new Stranger Things season 2 photos have just hit the web. Though plenty of time has passed since the events of season one (about a year, according to star David Harbour), it looks like this sleepy town is still dealing with the fallout from its brush with the Upside Down. See the Stranger Things season 2 photos below. Read More »

The love for Netflix’s Stranger Things continues to flood the Internet. Most people have responded more than enthusiastically to the Duffer Brothers’ entertaining throwback to the 1980s, which will return for a second season.

Until Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard), Sherrif Jim Hopper (David Harbour), and Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) come back to the small screen, we can expect plenty of more fan made t-shirts, posters, and more for the hit sci-fi series in the meantime.

If you binge watched Stranger Things this past weekend, then you spent your time wisely. The series’ creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, transported Netflix’s subscribers back to the 1980s, where kids and government conspiracies run amok. The siblings wrote and directed most of the eight episodes, which, as executive producers Shawn Levy (Real Steel) and Dan Cohen (The Spectacular Now) told us, they approached as an “eight-hour movie.”

Levy directed chapter three (“Holly, Jolly”) and four (“The Body”) of Stranger Things. When I spoke with the director and Cohen, I hadn’t seen all of season one yet, so we mainly covered their collaboration with the Duffer brothers and Netflix, the show’s references, and what to expect from the future of Stranger Things.

Below, read our interview with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen.

The first trailer for Netflix’s Stranger Things sure got our attention. Our own Jacob Hall described it as having a “pinch of Amblin and a cup of Stephen King,” which is a spot-on description of a series that looks like a big throwback. There are images in the trailers, including the latest one, that can’t help but make you think of Amblin, King, and John Carpenter‘s work. All of those potential influences could add up to little more than a trip down nostalgia lane, but the trailers are leading us to believe there’s possibly more to this Netflix series.

Below, watch the Stranger Things trailer.
