Fans have been waiting for a much closer look at the highly anticipated second season of Stranger Things ever since they finished binge watching the first season after it arrived last summer just before the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con. After the cast gave some perfectly ambiguous answers to host Patton Oswalt's questions about Season 2, they introduced some new cast members and then, finally, played a trailer.
One major challenge for the crew, it seems, will be to help Will move fully to the real world and leave the Upside-Down in the past.
The three-minute trailer ends with Brown's character, the telekinetic Eleven, trying to find her way out of the Upside Down.
Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike, revealed that with Eleven seemingly gone, his character is no longer the leader of his squad in Hawkins, Indiana, when the series picks up.
Season 2 of "Stranger Things" will have nine episodes. In a previous interview with The Hollywood Reporter, conducted in advance of production starting on season two, Schnapp expressed his desire to see Will take a darker, villainous turn following his return from the Upside Down.
Stranger Things is set to return to Netflix just in time for Halloween and the first full trailer for the season has been released. The Duffer Brothers also put in many references from classic horror and science fiction movies and TV shows from the 1980s and 1990s.
Now that we've seen the teaser, the wait is going to be even more arduous. Seeing the denizen with its enormous, tentacle-like appendages makes me think it's inspired by the deep ones of H.P. Lovecraft's writings.
Stranger Things 2 debuts October 27 on Netflix. The second season streams on October 27.
