Yes, we’re getting another dose of the excellent Netflix series, Stranger Things! The paean to early ’80s SF and horror ala Stephen King and Steven Spielberg* is a legitimate cultural phenomenon, and the news that we’re getting more retro-adventures into the unknown has us all pretty excited.

From the press release:

  • Stranger Things 2 will debut in 2017.
  • Writers / creators Matt and Ross Duffer will return.
  • Nine (9) new episodes are confirmed for the second season.
  • Stranger Things 2 will be produced by 21 Laps for Netflix. Executive Producers Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen and the Duffer Brothers will all return for the second season.

We also have the episode titles at hand:


The Boy Who Came Back to Life

The Pumpkin Patch

The Palace

The Storm

The Pollywog

The Secret Cabin

The Brain

The Lost Brother

Given the series propensity for homaging some of our favourite ’80s pop culture icons, that first one has us quite excited.

*an obvious comparison, but if it ain’t broke…
