Netflix confirms Stranger Things season two for 2017

Netflix has made Stranger Things season two official, with a teaser including a lot of references from 1984, which is the setting for the sequel to the popular original series. The show’s second season will debut on the streaming service in 2017.

The 1984 setting means time has jumped forward a year or so from the events of Stranger Things season one, which is in keeping with some things we were hearing earlier about a time jump.

If you haven’t checked out season one, you should: It’s a terrific 80s throwback with lots of spooky charm and a plot that keeps you gripped to your seat. No spoilers beyond that though – you deserve to see it spoiler free.
