Stranger Things Season 2 to be released right in time for Halloween

Posted: 12 July 2017 8:02 am News


You can watch the second season of Netflix's hit series on 27 October 2017.

Netflix has officially announced the release date for Stranger Things Season 2. The Hawkins gang will return to our screens on 27 October 2017, available to anyone with a Netflix subscription. Personally, I think they missed an opportunity to release on 11 November (11/11) in honour of the show's most badass character, Eleven. Maybe next year.

The release date was announced alongside a new poster with some serious Stephen King vibes. Check it out below.


The second season of Stranger Things fittingly takes place around Halloween 1984 where Will Byers is struggling to cope after being held in the Upside Down world for most of Season 1. From the trailer that was released at this year's Super Bowl, it looks like the Upside Down isn't finished with Hawkins and it appears to be encroaching on the real world.

Season 2 also introduces Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings), Paul Reiser (Mad About You) and Brett Gelman (Twin Peaks) in supporting roles.

27 October is turning out to be an overwhelming day for releases. Not only do we get the wonderful Super Mario Odyssey, but we also get Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Assassin's Creed: Origins.
