Netflix has announced an October 27th premiere date for the much anticipated second season of its streaming phenomenon “Stranger Things”. Additionally an animated promo and a new piece of key art has arrived along with a new synopsis which reads as follows:
“1953, date unknown – MKUltra comes to Hawkins and begins experimentation
1979 – Police Chief Jim Hopper returns to Hawkins
1983, November 6 – The vanishing of Will Byers
1983, November 8 – The vanishing of Barbara Holland
2016, July 15 – Part 1
2017, October 27 – Part 2
The second season is set a year after Will’s return, and everything seems back to normal… but a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins.
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.”
The show’s second season will also be holding a Comic-Con panel next week in Hall H during the convention in San Diego.
