SDCC 2017: Stranger Things Gets Even Stranger

Will Byers definitely brought something back with him when he returned from the Upside-Down. Is the town of Hawkins about to face a threat far more serious than they expected? And could this threat potentially escape the city limits and terrorize the world at large?

That’s the scenario suggested by the long-awaited Season Two trailer for Netflix’s Stranger Things. Poor Will is flipping in and out of dimensions and looks way in over his head. His buddies, deeply inspired by their recent viewing of Ghostbusters, try to help him out — when they’re not busy making wrong turns in Dragon’s Lair or loitering around Reagan-Bush lawn signs. And as expected, we do see Eleven at the end, but at this point her return isn’t really a surprise.

This is one of the best trailers we’ve gotten out of Comic-Con this year, and I’m not just saying that because it’s scored by Vincent Price’s Thriller monologue. Okay, maybe that played a large role. The second season of Stranger Things premieres on Netflix October 27.
