STRANGER THINGS renewed for a second season

Althought it was pretty much a done deal the second it launched to rapturous reviews and a huge number of views, Netflix have now formally renewed Stranger Things for a second season.

They confirmed that the second season will last for nine episodes, even going as far as to announce the episode titles in the preview video. Those episode titles are:
  1. Madmax
  2. The Boy Who Came Back to Life
  3. The Pumpkin Patch
  4. The Palace
  5. The Storm
  6. The Pollywog
  7. The Secret Cabin
  8. The Brain
  9. The Lost Brother

The Duffer Brothers have already been working on and planning the second season for a while. They've started submitting the scripts to Netflix and are looking to cast four major new characters for Season 2. However, they've confirmed that most of the major Season 1 characters will return but would not be drawn on if Eleven will be back, which given the ending of Season 1 is understandable.

To avoid the curse of bad sequels, the Duffer Brothers have apparently been studying the works of James Cameron, judging Aliens and Terminator 2: Judgement Day to be the finest sequels ever made. Hopefully something rubs off and the second season of Stranger Things is as good as the first, if not better.

Season 2 of Stranger Things - and apparently there's a good chance it will be called Stranger Things II - is expected to air in late 2017.
