What is Stranger Things Season 2 about? Netflix released the trailer, release date, and synopsis for Stranger Things Season 2 during the Super Bowl.

The Stranger Things Season 2 teaser trailer aired during the 2017 Super Bowl, which sent fans of the series into a frenzy on social media. At the end of the trailer, Netflix announced Stranger Things Season 2 would be released next Halloween, October 31, 2017.

The plot and story of Stranger Things Season 2 has been one of the best kept Netflix secrets, so this was our first look at what could possibly be happening since we left our heroes in Hawkins, Indiana at the end of the first season. And, it looks even crazier and darker than the first season!

According to Netflix, the second season of the series will take place about one year after the events of first season, which we won’t discuss just in case someone has not seen it yet.

From the first teaser trailer, we didn’t get a great look at the story or possible storylines. Teaser trailers are meant give fans a look at the new season and stir up excitement and energy about the show. That’s exactly what the Stranger Things Season 2 teaser did!

Luckily, Netflix also shared a short synopsis of the second season on YouTube. Here is the synopsis, via Netflix: 

"A year after Will’s return, everything seems back to normal… but a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins."

Again, that’s not very specific, but as the trailer pointed out, “the world is turning upside down.”

Based on the trailer, the thing “threatening” Hawkins and our favorite characters looks like it could be some sort of giant spider-ish thing that could crush the town. That seems to be the big threat, but there’s going to be much more to the story.
