Fans of sci-fi series Stranger Things will be over the moon to know the trailer for Season 2 has just been unleashed and while it’s less than 40 seconds in length, the clip hints at a season packed with even more, well, stranger things.
For those who’ve had their head in the sad (or just aren’t clever enough to be streaming TV – so much better than dull-as free-to-air), Stranger Things is a series set in the 1980s, following the upturned lives of a group of kids after one of the group gets abducted by… well, something.
A new girl joins the group, her odd name, Eleven, being the least of their surprises, for she also holds superhuman powers that lead to the rediscovery of the abducted boy and to an upside down world called, you guessed it, the Upside Down. But a team of conniving researchers are looking for Eleven so as to complete a research project that is more sinister than it is good science.
Season 1 ended with the rediscovered kid, Will, feeling ill and throwing up some kind of slug, reminiscent of an alien body part, and, tells Noah Schnapp, who plays Will, Season 2’s storyline will stem from there.
“You’ll be seeing more of me. I’ll be there,” Schnapp told Vanity Fair this week. “In the last episode, I threw up a slug, so Season 2 begins with what happens from there. There may have been some effect on him. I may or may not have turned into a monster. You’ll have to watch to find out.”
The trailer for Season 2 also shows the other kids dressed up in Ghostbusters costumes so trainspotter’s will be correct in noting that it is firmly set in 1984.
Not much else is being revealed about the new season, except for a cryptic social media post from Matthew Modine (who plays the lead nasty researcher), featuring foreign writing in some kind of computer code.
There’s also been a teaser that has provided the title of each episode, these being:
The Boy Who Came Back To Life
The Pumpkin Patch
The Secret Cabin
The Lost Brother
