Stranger Things gets official trailer at Comic-Con

By Nathaniel Dalby - Tue 25th Jul 2017 News

Fans got a first-hand look at the new season. 

The official trailer for the upcoming second season of Stranger Things has been revealed at Comic-Con.

The full-length trailer was revealed to fans at the event in San Diego and later posted on the official Netflix YouTube channel.

Previously, we’ve only seen snippets of the second season in the form of teasers, so this was the first time fans got a longer look at what we can expect.

The trailer draws heavily on the 80s aesthetic of the series, with the returning cast of characters playing notoriously difficult arcade game Dragon’s Lair and the action soundtracked by Michael Jackson's Thriller

Season 2 promises to amp up the spooky, otherworldly aspect of the series, with telepathic heroine Eleven stuck in the ‘Upside Down’ - the show’s mysterious alternative universe. 

Elsewhere, the full cast of season 1 features, with Winona Ryder, Millie Bobby Brown and David Harbour all featuring in the trailer.

Producer Shawn Levy spoke on the Comic-Con panel, which included the cast and creators of the show, saying that season 2 would take the show to a new level.

"I think overall the kind of forces of evil that are inherent in season two make that Demogorgon look quaint in retrospect.”

The first season of Stranger Things did exceptionally well in terms of the recent Emmy nominations, cleaning up with 18 earlier this month.

Fans and critics alike will be hoping that season 2 lives up to the huge expectations it has.

Stranger Things season 2 will air on Netflix on October 27th - just in time for Halloween. You can catch up with the full first season right now.
