First and foremost - this is not technically the second season of "Stranger Things" as odd as that might sound.
Except, as the Duffers told Entertainment Weekly, they don't consider it a new season, but rather, a sequel.
The return of Stranger Things is now less than a month away, but we still know very little about what we'll see.
In "Stranger Things 2", the friends will encounter a brand new monster that is haunting Will as he's still experiencing some sort of post traumatic stress after being trapped in the Upside Down for so long.
One of the most important and compelling subplots of Season 1 involved the love triangle between Nancy Wheeler (Natalia Dyer), Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), and Jonathan Byers (Charlie Heaton). But it's all connected to this singular threat which is tied into this shape that Will sees in the sky. You get a good look at the ominous creature in the Stranger Things Super Bowl teaser and the trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con.
"Each episode is building on the last one", Matt said. Instead the fallout will be with those closest to her, including Barb's parents who are obviously devastated after losing their daughter.
The Duffer Brothers also confirmed that the new season will feature several different storylines but assured fans of the series' propulsive, film-like narrative structure that each storyline will connect to the shadow monster which has been previously teased as the series' ultimate big bad. "We purposely don't want to go too much into what it is or what it wants". I want the debate. This is being envisioned as a movie sequel in the light of Terminator 2, Toy Story 2 and others that were able to build on the success and the story from the first movie. Netflix have blessed us with a trailer for Love In The Upside Down - Stranger Things as a cutesy Eighties romantic teen comedy.
