We all remember when Stranger Things appeared on Netflix back in July of 2016. It was all the rage. The show that everyone gobbled up and couldn’t get enough of. There was a sense of mystery and darkness that came with the show. It pulled from great 80’s movies like E.T. and Stand By Me, so you know it’s a good show when those 80’s classics are mentioned.
Season One Recap
The show started out following Will and his three friends, Mike, Dustin, and Lucas. Will and his friends were out playing an intense game of pretend. When they are interrupted by and forced to get back to their real lives, they grab their bikes, and head for home. On their way home, Will gets separated from the group.
Nothing strange about this separation until he realizes that he is close to the laboratory, where strange experiments have taken place, and a monster has escaped from his cage. Rumors fly about this place, but Will didn’t think anything of it until he felt like he was being followed. He made his way home, weary of the feeling he had of being followed.
It doesn’t take Will long to figure out that the monster has chosen him and is following him. When Will makes it home, he arms himself to the best of his ability, but that doesn’t stop the monster from abducting him.
The entire first season follows Will’s family as they try to find him, as the police sort out the mystery of what happened. They never get it figured out and they’re stuck with the mystery and more bad happenings.
Season Two Announced
October 27th, 2017 is the date that Stranger Things fans have been waiting for. The irony of the release date isn’t lost to those that avidly watched the show. The date was announced on Tuesday, July 11 and fans were thrilled, ecstatic if you will, over the news.
Will questions from season one be answered? Will we see Will again, safe at home?
Predictions for Season Two
The description from Hollywood Reporter says it best, “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.”
Hollywood Reporter was spot on with their description of what we can expect for season two. The preview may not be long, but it’s better than nothing.
Stranger Things fans have been waiting for over a year to see what happens in Hawkins, Indiana with Will and the Monster. They’ve been waiting to find out the mystery disappearance and the strange and horrific coincidences that have happened to the town. While fans still have to wait, they’ve now got a set date so that they don’t have worry or wonder. What are you most looking forward to with season 2?
