“Stranger Things” is one of the hottest new series on Netflix, and as casts go, they are few of the most energetic (and genuinely excited) individuals to ever host a San Diego Comic-Con panel. Netflix brought the cast and creatives to SDCC this weekend, all to promote the show and interact with fans. During the series’ panel, Netflix released a new trailer for the show’s highly anticipated second season and the crowd just went nuts. The new season might not be premiering on the video-streaming service until late October, but you can get an early look at the new episodes thanks to the trailer below.
Netflix set-up the trailer stating, “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.”
Netflix will premiere “Stranger Things Season 2” on October 27, 2017. Fans can watch the official SDCC trailer for the second season below.
If you haven’t seen the first season yet, you certainly should, but you have plenty of time to catch up. The series is love letter to the ’80s classics that captivated a generation. “Stranger Things” is set in 1983 Indiana, where a young boy vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
The show has been a worldwide hit with fans and critics, and the second-season seems to be a perfect continuation of the series’ original themes. The show has done wonders for the cast, especially Millie Bobby Brown, who is currently filming a role in the upcoming Godzilla sequel from director Michael Dougherty. That film will also feature Vera Farmiga, and Charles Dance.
Netflix also introduced trailers for “Death Note” and Will Smith’s “Bright,” two new projects coming to Netflix over the next few months.
