Netflix's "Stranger Things", an eerie horror pastiche, mixes elements of Steven Spielberg, Stephen King and John Carpenter, has been the hit of the summer. Now, an announcement has been made that it's coming back for a second season in 2017.
It earned itself an enthusiastic fan base in large part thanks to the performances of Winona Ryder and four spunky kids: Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Finn Wolfhard and Millie Bobby Brown.
On its official Twitter page, a new video hints the episode titles for the new season.
According to Telegraph, the series is set in small-town Indiana in 1983, and spins a nostalgic yarn of missing children, psychic phenomena, and things that go bump in the night, and is created by Duffer brothers.
The last episode of season one shows Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) having just sacrificed herself to defeat the faceless creature, and Will (Noah Schnapp) recovering from his ordeal in the Upside Down.
Huffington Post reveals that the series is adding two new young actors: Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery.
Montgomery, of "Power Rangers," will substitute "Billy, Max's hyper-confident, and edgy older step-brother. He steals girlfriends away from their boyfriends, is great at drinking games, and drives a black Camaro. But lurking under his apparent charisma, is a violent and unpredictable nature."
Sink, on the other hand, has previously appeared on "American Odyssey," and will portray "Max, a tough and confident girl whose appearance, behaviour and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era. Also, she has a complicated history and is generally suspicious of those around her."
The Duffer brothers said that there will be four new characters in the next season.
"Stranger Things" season two will debut in mid-to-late 2017 and will likely "explore the repercussions of everything that happened" in Season 1.
