The current TV landscape is somewhat of an embarrassment of riches when it comes to quality horror and horror-adjacent genre programming. Just some of the shows currently kicking ass include The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Black Mirror, Twin Peaks, and Channel Zero.
Last summer, Netflix debuted one of the most buzz-worthy horror programs in recent memory, Stranger Things. The tale of an otherworldly monster invading the small Indiana town of Hawkins expertly combined horror, sci-fi, and fantasy tropes, all while serving as one big homage to the pop culture of the 1980s.
While only running 8 episodes, Stranger Things season 1 told one hell of a satisfying story, along with introducing the world to memorable characters like the psychically-endowed tween Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), and Hawkins’ pragmatically badass sheriff Jim Hopper (David Harbour).
To say that October’s Stranger Things season 2 is riding a huge wave of anticipation would be a massive understatement, and now – fresh out of Comic-Con – iHorror brings you Netflix’s official trailer for the Duffer Brothers’ second batch of awesome 80’s fun. Check the full trailer out below.
Stranger Things season 2 premieres on Netflix on October 27th, just in time for Halloween. I for one can’t wait to check it out, and I’m sure everyone reading this right now feels the same way.
Can Stranger Things season 2 possibly manage to live up to season 1? With the same crew at the helm and the same cast on-board, there’s no reason as of yet to expect it not to.
