When there's something strange in Hawkins, Indiana, who you gonna call? Dustin, Mike and Lucas of "Stranger Things" fame! Entertainment Weekly announced that the first trailer for "Stranger Things" Season 2 will air on Sunday during the Super Bowl, and they have a new photo to prove it.
In the photo, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) have all donned "Ghostbusters" uniforms -- which makes sense, seeing as Season 2 will take place in 1984, a whole year after the events of the first season. It looks like things are just about back to normal for the boys as they head to school. Halloween must be right around the corner, though, because the photo shows a smattering of handmade pumpkin decorations on the school door.
The comic book-loving, Dungeons and Dragons-playing trio could probably teach the Ghostbusters a thing or two. After all, they faced down an inter-dimensional monster they called the Demogorgon back in Season 1. Soon after their friend Will Byers went missing, the boys encountered Eleven, a girl with otherworldly powers, and she was able to steer them in the right direction. With some help from Will's mom Joyce, his brother Jonathan, Chief Jim Hopper, Mike's sister Nancy and her boyfriend Steve, the Hawkins residents were able to defeat the Demogorgon and bring Will home. However, Eleven appeared to be lost in the struggle, and Will isn't as okay as he seems, since he was seen coughing up slugs at the end of the Season 1 finale.
“In the last episode, I threw up a slug, so Season Two begins with what happens from there,” teased Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers, in an earlier interview. “There may have been some effect on him. I may or may not have turned into a monster. You’ll have to watch to find out.”
“The threat, which in Season One was to Will Byers, has grown. That’s all I’m going to say!” added executive producer Shawn Levy.
"Stranger Things" Season 2 doesn't yet have a release date, but that could change when the trailer drops during Super Bowl LI. Filming is already under way in Atlanta. Most of the Season 1 cast, including Winona Ryder and Millie Bobby Brown, will return, joined by the likes of Sean Astin (“The Lord of the Rings”), (“Mad About You”) and more.
