If you never got the chance to watch Stranger Things on Netflix may I suggest you go and watch it now. Stranger Things came out of nowhere last year and then become the must watch TV show that people were talking about around the water cooler. With the increase of binge watching and it’s appeal to geeks and the 80’s kids generation and great casting it tapped into something and became a phenomenon. So during the Super Bowl Netflix dropped the trailer for season 2 and people went nuts! I was expecting season 2 to be released in May or April this year, but it looks like everyone will have to wait till Halloween, which maybe a great marketing ploy by Netflix. It will build up the anticipation for the show and I’m sure loads of people will be booking the 31st off and the following days after that and I’m sure we will see a few viewing parties happening.
Here is the press release from Netflix which also includes a synopsis and a awesome factoid about the Super Bowl trailer.
About Stranger Things 2: A year after Will’s return, everything seems back to normal… but a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins.
