With less than a week to go until Season 2 of Stranger Things premieres, the promotional hype continues to move full steam ahead. A new poster and the series' new soundtrack have now added to that train, further whetting the appetites of those eager to see how our young heroes prep themselves for the new threats emerging from the dark realm known as the Upside Down.
The poster, done in the ensemble style of the '80s, showcases the majority of the Duffer Brothers' cast for this season, with the standout being the new monster, touted as the Thessalhydra mentioned last year, hovering over Eleven and the rest of the crew. The creature appears to have breached the Upside Down's rift and entered the real world with the likes of Eleven, Mike Wheeler and his Ghostbuster-clad squad, Joy and Will Byers, Sheriff Hopper and last but not least, Steve, armed with his trusty barb-wired baseball bat, all ready to fight back.
It remains to be seen how Will's connection to the Upside Down persists as well as how Eleven copes with her return. However, while this poster has other scary elements, such as rotting pumpkins and a scarecrow, fans can get an even more chilling experience with the soundtrack now available on Spotify. Scored by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of the band S U R V I V E, it boasts another batch of haunting yet catchy synth-pop songs regarding the battles we can expect this upcoming season from the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana.
Debuting Oct. 27 on Netflix, the second season of Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, Matthew Modine, Noah Schnapp, Joe Keery, Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery.
