The first trailer for Stranger Things Season 2 is here, and it was worth the wait.
The show returns to Netflix on October 27, 2017, just in time for a Halloween-themed adventure with Will, Mike, Lucas, Dustin, and of course El.
Netflix teases the latest installment as follows: 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.
Joining the cast this year are Lord of the Rings and The Strain’s Sean Astin, and Aliens’ Paul Reiser.
Astin will take on the role of Bob Newby, described as “a kindhearted former nerd who went to high school with Joyce (Winona Ryder) and Hopper (David Harbour) and now manages the local Hawkins RadioShack.”
Reiser meanwhile has been cast as Dr. Owens, “a high-ranking member within the Department of Energy on a ‘clean-up’ assignment, tasked with containing the events of last year.”
Danish actress Linnea Berthelsen was also previously announced. Berthelsen will take on the role of Roman, “an emotionally damaged, magnetic young woman who suffered a great loss as a child. Although she does not live in Hawkins, she is mysteriously connected to the supernatural events at the lab.”
The latest additions join the recently announced Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery as sibling duo Max and Billy.
