Spoilers! ‘Stranger Things’ Season 2 Preview Trailer From Netflix Drops [Video]
Netflix has just released the second season preview of their hit show, Stranger Things. As seen in the attached video, titled “Stranger Things 2 — Netflix,” the popular Stranger Things show will pick up in 1984, with a series of events that are laid out with simple terms in the second season trailer. The Stranger Things trailer does not show any footage or characters, but it does contain words and creepy, compelling music that tells Stranger Things fans what strange things to expect from the second season, coming in 2017.
The Stranger Things Season 2 trailer video was uploaded to Netflix on August 31. It quickly gained more than 15,000 views.
In the Stranger Things 2 video, which is only 56 seconds long, clues such as “Madmax” and “The boy who came back to life” are given. Mad Max was a 1979 movie that starred Mel Gibson as one of the survivors of a world that experienced a type of apocalyptic collapse.
Stranger Things 2 also alludes to “The Pumpkin Patch,” which immediately brings to mind the 1966 show, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which was created by Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz.
Whether the phrases seen in the Stranger Things 2 preview trailer are episode titles remain to be seen, but they do give Stranger Things fans clues as rife as Dungeons & Dragons — the fantasy tabletop game often being seen played in Stranger Things — to unfurl whilst waiting for the second season to premiere.
Next up, the Stranger Things 2 preview trailer lists “The Palace,” and well as an intriguing clue about “The Storm.”
There’s “The Pollywog” to look forward to, which is a tadpole.
Stranger Things 2 talks about “The Secret Cabin,” as well as “The Brain.”
Finally, there’s “The Lost Brother” to be expected in the second season of Stranger Things.
All of these Stranger Things 2 events should take place in the fall of 1984, according to the new trailer. The adventure will continue, but fans will have to wait until 2017 to binge watch the next season of Stranger Things.
Meanwhile, the description of the YouTube trailer for the second season of Stranger Things doesn’t give many more clues as to what to expect. Instead, it focuses more on the events of the first season of Stranger Things.
“The adventure continues. Stranger Things 2 is coming to Netflix 2017.
“Stranger Things Season 1: A love letter to the supernatural classics of the ’80s, Stranger Things is the story of a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
“Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine.
“Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines, Hidden) serve as writer, directors and co-showrunners of the series, and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (The Spectacular Now, Night At The Museum, Real Steel, Date Night). Shawn Levy also serves as director. Stranger Things is a Netflix original series.”
Those who watched the first season of Stranger Things — spoilers ahead! — already know that even though things seemed back to normal and better for the boy at the center of Stranger Things, who had vanished and then come back home, life was anything but normal. A trip to the bathroom, which produced a worm-like creature being expelled from the boy’s mouth, let Stranger Things viewers know that stuff from the “Upside Down” came with him.
Meanwhile, Barb from Stranger Things has gotten out of the Upside Down as well, reports Vanity Fair.
