In catching up with news out of this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, Netflix has released the coveted STRANGER THINGS Season 2 trailer!
The Stranger Things panel at SDCC has released footage from the upcoming season along with a teaser trailer that drove fans wild with anticipation.
With Vincent Price’s voice-over from Michael Jackson’s mega-selling Thriller pushing the narrative, the look at Season 2 made it clear the Upside Down isn’t gone – at all. Add to that, the now-1984-set series was peppered with period-specific video games, Reagan/Bush re-election lawn signs and a promise from Sheriff Jim Hooper (David Harbour) that “nothing is going to go back to the way it was, not really.”
The Stranger Things panel at SDCC featured EP Shawn Levy, the Duffer Brothers, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, David Harbour, Matthew Modine, Joe Keery, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, and S2 new additions Sadie Sink, Paul Reiser and Dacre Montgomery.
During the panel Harbour called Season 1 “a classic hero journey” for his Sheriff Jim Hooper character but otherwise besides a “wildly different arc in Season 2” the cast were fairly mum of what the 1984-based cycle will actually be about. The co-creators had already teased that Season 2 would be a “bigger season in some regards.”
“It was obviously difficult, I had very few lines,” said Emmy nominee Brown of Season 1 and playing Eleven. ”I had to everything with my face which is very hard but it gets easier when you feel more comfortable with your character,” she added. “In the first two episodes I immediately fell in love with Eleven. The only thing that was hard was crying. I feel like I’m a happy person in real life. I need five minutes to get in the zone.”
Earlier this month, Stranger Things received 18 Emmy nominations including Best Drama and Supporting Actor and Actress nods for David Harbour and almost newcomer teen Mille Bobby Brown as well as an unexpected nod for Purser.
