Stranger Things season 2 is coming soon to Netflix. Find out when you can watch new episodes of the Golden Globe-nominated series.

Stranger Things season 2 is coming to Netflix on Halloween. The announcement was made during the third quarter of the Super Bowl between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots. The game was a dud so many were still watching to see the highly anticipated teaser that was coming at an unannounced time.

After the Falcons got a touchdown reception from Tevin Coleman, Fox went to commercial and we heard that familiar ominous music that can only mean one (strange) thing.

The moment we’ve waited was here and even though it was a brief Super Bowl commercial, we got an answer to when there will be new episodes of Stranger Things. The teaser below says “Halloween” so we are taking that literally.

Stranger Things season 2 will be released on Friday, Oct. 27.

Now, as great as the teaser is and it was great to hear that music again, but the Halloween date does raise both of my eyebrows. Netflix never releases their shows on Tuesday and always releases them on Friday. It only makes sense to do that for Stranger Things, especially since it’s arguably the best show on Netflix.

In any event, that’s the date we have to work with and that means it’s going to be a lot longer than we thought. Season 1 came out in mid-July but considering the season 2 renewal didn’t come until Aug. 31, we anticipated a full year from then would be the earliest target date for new episodes.

We’re a little beyond our estimation with the Oct. 31 release date, but it just gives fans a bit more time to revisit the first season all over again.

Season 2 will be nine episodes and takes place one year later after the events of the first season. Millie Bobby Brown and the cast are all returning for the new season that can’t come soon enough on Halloween.
