The groundbreaking sci-fi that captured the hearts and blew the minds of audiences everywhere has come back to Netflix for a showstopping second season.

The highly anticipated Netflix Original “Stranger Things” came out last summer and has been revived for a new season with brand new characters and thrilling plotlines. Told in nine enthralling chapters, the show takes place almost a full year after Will Beyer’s (Noah Schnapps) long awaited return and Eleven’s (Millie Bobby Brown) disappearance after defeating the monstrous Demogorgon.

The struggles the characters face trying to revert back to their normal lives is heightened by Will’s continued visions of the Upside Down and Nancy’s (Natalie Dyer) desire to tell the world what really happened to her late friend Barb. On top of this is the arrival of new main character Maxine (Sadie Sink) and her hostile stepbrother Billy (Dacre Montgomery) who move to Hawkins, Indiana from California. This change disrupts the dynamic of the original main characters and brings about new obstacles and challenges.

The season details Mike’s (Finn Wolfhard) continued search for Eleven, Dustin’s (Gaten Matarazzo) encounter with a mysterious new creature and Lucas’ (Caleb McLaughlin) attempt to initiate Max into the group. All the while Will deals with the terrifying aftermath of his return and the chaos that lingers around him with the help of his frantic mother Joyce (Winona Ryder) and his outcast brother Jonathan (Charlie Heaton).

This season deals with familiar monsters from season one, new antagonists and a deeper look into Eleven’s past. With the return of beloved characters like Chief Hopper (David Harbour) and Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), this season lives up to the first and surpasses audience’s expectations. The addition of new cast members such as Sean Astin as Joyce’s tech savvy boyfriend Bob Newby and Linnea Berthelson as Kali who is introduced as a link to Eleven’s past, creates new storylines and new adventures to look forward to.

The gang must unite and rise up again to defend the sleepy town of Hawkins where, “nothing ever happens,” from demo-dogs, shadow monsters and bullies this season on “Stranger Things.”
