Stranger Things 2 teaser: Future looks murky for town of Hawkins; new season releases on 27 October
A vintage-horror feel and retro aesthetic, coupled with great acting, are what make Netflix series Stranger Things a fan-favourite. After recently announcing the release date for season 2 of the show, a teaser has also been released.
The second season takes place in Hawkins in the year 1984, a year after the events that took place in season one. In the official teaser, we see three children riding bikes down a road as the sky turns blood red, lightning strikes and a red winged creature with what seems to be outstretched wings appears.
"A year after Will’s return, everything seems back to normal… but a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins," reads the original synopsis. Netflix also revealed that the citizens of Hawkins are still reeling from the scare caused by the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab.
The titles of the upcoming episodes are nothing less than cryptic: 'Madmax', 'The Boy Who Came Back To Life', 'The Pumpkin Patch', 'The Palace, The Storm, The Pollywog', 'The Secret Cabin', 'The Brain', and 'The Lost Brother'.
All previous cast members will reprise their roles, and added to the mix are Sadie Sink who plays 15-year-old Max, and Dacre Montgomery, who essays the role of her elder brother Billy. Also joining the cast are Paul Reiser, Sean Astin, Will Chase and Brett Gelman.
The second season of Stranger Things will begin airing on 27 October.
