Netflix has officially confirmed the return of breakout hit Stranger Things, posting a cryptic trailer for its second season on Twitter today.
Scored by the show’s opening theme, the minute-long clip shows a number of mysterious phrases, including: “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.” While no one is sure quite what it all means just yet (maybe potential episode titles?), one thing is clear – it will take place one year after the original season, in the autumn of 1984.
As of yet, no casting details have been announced. However, we do know that the second season will reportedly be longer than the first: spanning over nine episodes rather than the original’s eight.
“We want it to feel like a big movie,” show creator Matt Duffer told Variety in July. “But there’s a bigger mythology, and there’s a lot of dangling threads at the end.”
“It’s about giving enough so the audience feels satisfied.”
