Netflix’s original series “Stranger Things” has captured the hearts of the masses with its 80’s genre film homages and delightful young cast, garnering critical acclaim and popularity in equal measure. Created by Matt and Ross Duffer and starring Winona Ryder (“Heathers”) and David Harbour (“Suicide Squad”), the series’ first season follows the disappearance of a young boy in a small Indiana town in 1983, and the search for him by his friends, family, and a mysterious psychokinetic girl who escapes a government laboratory. Along the way, they uncover supernatural forces beyond their wildest imaginations and a federal conspiracy that stretches past their small town. Though the series was released on the streaming service only in mid-July, people have been clamoring for information about more episodes. Now, Netflix has officially renewed the series for a second season with a teaser trailer that promises nine episodes to air in 2017. Watch the trailer below.
