The 80’s are back! The cameras were rolling on Stranger Things 2 yesterday in Stockbridge, GA. Thanks to JustJared we have our first look at much of the returning cast as well as some new faces who could be guest stars or extras appearing in the first episode of the second season.
Season two is said to be bigger and darker yet familiar. The adventure continues a year later in the fall of 1984 and will explore the consequences of Will Byers’ week spent in the upside down and the portal that is still open at the Department of Energy. In addition to the return of Millie Bobby Brown as the iconic Eleven, the series will add 80’s stars Sean Astin (The Goonies), Paul Reiser (Aliens) as well as newcomers Linnea Berthelsen, Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers) and broadway star Sadie Sink into the mix.
Stranger Things 2 stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb Mclaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, and Noah Schnapp.
It’s happening! For most people, this is nothing of importance so don’t get too excited but for someone who is counting down the seconds until The Duffer Brothers call action on set, this has me pretty pumped.
Thanks to Reddit user mondaymillionare, we have a look at the trailers set up ready to host the actors as they create what will hopefully be another magical experience for audiences. The photo was taken today in Jackson, Georgia which serves as the fictional settings of Hawkins, Indiana.
What we know:
The second season will pick up a year post the events of season one in the fall of 1984 and will feature the return of the entire original cast plus several new additions, two of which were recently announced. The story will deal directly with the portal that is still open to the upside down and how Will has been affected by his time spent there. Things are still up in the air with the return of Eleven but she’s definitely returning. You don’t create an iconic character like that and kill her off after one season. Plus if she was gone for good, I think the Duffers would be pretty up front about that. Their reluctance whether or not to tell us if Eleven is returning signals to me that we will see her again.
Oh, but Barb is dead. Seriously, she is not coming back, however. The show will deliver some form of ‘Justice For Barb’ to satisfy audiences frustrations with the lack of acknowledgment over the loss of Barb in the first season.
The second season begins production sometime in the next two weeks.
Stranger Things 2 will hit Netflix sometime in 2017.
The Netflix smash hit Stranger Things rolls into production on the sequel in about three weeks. When the second season was announced it was revealed that the new season would see three new characters added to the mix — one for each generation of characters.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Sadie Sink and Dacre Mongtomery will be joining the cast as series regulars.
Sink will play Max, a tough tomboy who rides her skateboard everywhere she goes. Her complicated past has made her suspicious of those around her.
Montgomery, star of the upcoming Power Rangers reboot will play Max’s older step brother Billy — a typical 80’s jock who steals girlfriends out from their boyfriends and drives a black Camaro while he isn’t busy playing drinking games. Underneath he is said to be violent and unpredictable. Sounds like Steve’s former buddy Tommy has found his new best friend.
The new characters are said to be compelling but first and foremost in service of the core group of characters introduced in season one.
Noah Schnapp and Joe Keery have also been upgraded from their recurring roles to series regulars.
The second season will pick up with the original cast a year later and deal with the portal that is still open to the upside down.
