Netflix’s Stranger Things Season 2 is now officially confirmed with the release date set for 2017, most likely August 2017 release date. Stranger Things Season 1 premiered on Netflix with widely positive reviews/ratings, so this was a no-brainer for Netflix to renew this fantastic TV show. The Duffer Brothers revealed in a recent interview with EW that the new season would take place in 1984. Season 2 will have nine total episodes versus Season 1’s eight episodes. Most of the original characters will return and will cross town lines, explore the Upside Down, include at least four new characters with one called “The Lost Brother.” Check out the Stranger Things Season 2 announcement video below.
