Stranger Things Season 2 filming has wrapped up, and now we only have to wait until its release this fall. However, details regarding the new adventures of the gang are still hard to come by.
The first season was another massive hit, amassing a huge following of fans in a matter of weeks. Only over a month after Stranger Things was released on July 15, Netflix announced a Season 2. The release was confirmed to be in October 2017 then production started four months later in November, Screen Rant reported.
Recently, the cast and crew announced the end of filming on social media. The cast thanked their co-stars and bid them goodbye all over Instagram, but sadly they are tightlipped about Stranger Things Season 2 details. The development lasted for six months, but no details have been unintentionally leaked out.
Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, mentioned Sadie, Finn, Gaten, Caleb, and Noah in an Instagram post that was uploaded on the last night of shooting. Although we can’t get any information in any of their posts, she did tease an epic Stranger Things Season 2 ahead for the fans.
Last night of shooting. Sadie I love you with all my heart. Finn thank you for making me laugh! Gaten, thank you for being there for me throughout everything. Caleb, my older brother thank you for protecting me no matter what! And Noah, thank you for being my partner in crime ❤️ can't wait for everyone to see this season as it's epic! This wouldn't have happened without the crew!
Stranger ThingsSeason 2: What We Currently Know
During Super Bowl in February, fans were treated to a commercial of Stranger Things Season 2, where we caught a glimpse of Eleven who disappeared at the end of the first season and of the large monster that the kids are set to battle in their Ghost Busters costumes.
Compared to this season’s monster, the Demogorgon might just be a cockroach in the realm of Upside Down. We know that Season 2 is going to be more horror-oriented this time though, and the giant spider-looking just proves it.
Stranger Things Season 2 is also exploring more of Eleven’s backstory, and we’ll likely see the effects of being dragged to The Upside Down on Will Byers (Noah Schnapps), who threw up a slug-like creature in Season 1’s ending.
Another Cliffhanger Awaits At The End Of Season 2
As if the cliffhanger at Season 1’s ending is not enough to drive fans crazy, Stranger Things‘ next season is ending in a yet another cliffhanger, Gaten Matarazzo revealed in an interview with HuffPost.
Matarazzo, who plays Dustin in the show, also confirmed that some of Season 1’s questions will be answered. But Season 2 will also present some mysteries of its own. According to the actor, viewers will also learn more about the alternate world. There is a lot of action scenes to look forward to as well, so it seems that fans are in for a more thrilling ride.
We can expect to know more about Stranger Things Season 2 in the months leading up to its release. Now that the show is in post-production stage, another trailer should be on the way that will hopefully give us another sneak peek of the monster and Eleven’s whereabouts.
Netflix might appear at the Comic-Con International on July 20-23 in San Diego, California, where trailers are often released. However, we can’t know for sure if that’s the case.
Stranger Things Primed For A Season 3
Matarazzo’s answers hinted at another season. The cliffhanger at the end of Season 2 is enough indication that the people behind the show want to take Stranger Things further, but Gaten also said that some of the explanations for the next season’s mysteries will only be answered in the following season.
If Stranger Things Season 2 is what the cast makes it out to be, then a third season will likely be green-lighted. Hopefully, the staff can continue the momentum they build in the first season.
Stranger Things Season 2 premieres on October 31 right in time for Halloween. Catch it only on Netflix.
