It was pretty much a given, but it's finally official: Stranger Things is getting a second season.
Netflix announced the news with a teaser trailer that they dropped across all their social media channels. According to Variety, the season will consist of nine episodes (up from the first season's eight) and debut in 2017. Reportedly, they've been working on the second season for awhile, but they're not yet willing to confirm which cast members (if any) will return.
The teaser consists of just nine sets of text, with the popular (and safe) assumption being that these are the titles of all nine episodes.
- The Boy Who Came Back to Life
- The Pumpkin Patch
- The Palace
- The Storm
- The Pollywog
- The Secret Cabin
- The Brain
- The Lost Brother
Even if these aren't episode titles, they have to mean something, right? "The Boy Who Came Back to Life" sounds like it could potentially reference Will Byers, the boy who went missing and kickstarted much of season one's plot. But there's also a high chance that this is just what the showrunners want you to think.
We'll have to wait until 2017 to know more for sure. In the meantime, Millie Bobby Brown, who played Eleven in season one, is coming to Dallas later this year for Dallas Comic Con Fan Days.
