Get ready to head to the upside down once more with the return of Netflix’s hit original series, Stranger Things.
In the second season of Stranger Things, it’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.
The new season will open a few days before Halloween 1984 with everyone trying to put the events of the previous year behind them. Will Byers is being harassed at his school and he’s plagued by nightmares of the Upside Down, in which there are times he believes he is still trapped there.
Maxine (Sadie Sink), or Max, is the new girl in town who enjoys skateboarding and she’s even better at video games then the boys. But just like anyone else, she has her own secrets. She also catches the eyes of Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) who try to impress her.
While her presence is welcomed by some, it is rejected by Mike (Finn Wolfhard) who sits in his basement still waiting for a message from Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).
The series has also cast two ’80s icons with Sean Astin (The Goonies) playing Bob, a new man in Joyce’s life, and Paul Reiser (Aliens) as Dr. Owens who will monitor Will’s episodes, but be of no use.
Starring Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Cara Buono, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Dacre Montgomery, Sadie Sink, Sean Astin, and Paul Reiser.
