Netflix’s summer hit “Stranger Things” will be back with more nostalgia-laced supernatural happenings.
The streaming company released a trailer Wednesday announcing that the series starring Winona Ryder had been picked up for a second season. The trailer includes what appears to be titles of nine new episodes with an announcement that “in the fall of 1984, the adventure continues.”
The show, an homage to the 1980s, focuses on the disappearance of a young boy and the ensuing supernatural occurrences in a small Indiana town as his mother, his friends and a wayward sheriff try to find him. It’s been a critic- and fan-favorite and made stars out of the cast of young actors.
The show’s creators, the Duffer Brothers, will return, as will executive producers Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. Entertainment Weekly spoke to the creators about the next season, which will bring back characters Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Joyce (Ryder), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and others. Still unknown is the fate of fan-favorite Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).
The second season will have one more episode than the first — although that won’t stop fans from crying out for more.
Expect the second season to premiere sometime in 2017.
