If you haven't watched the first season yet, quickly go check it out, we'll wait right here. The series focused on a group of young kids, after their friend mysteriously vanished into thin air they go on a journey to find him. After they run into a young girl who barely speaks and displays telepathic abilities, things only get stranger for our young heroes.
It was such a surprising joy to watch, pulling from horror greats like Stephen King, John Carpenter and a sprinkling of Spielberg's classics, the expectations for season two are unbelievably high. Luckily it looks like the show is having a lot of fun with with even more tributes to Hollywood horrors.
In the lead-up to the next season the show has been releasing amazing tribute posters to the likes of 'Jaws', 'Nightmare on Elm Street' and 'Alien' to get people hyped for the show's return.
While not much is known about what's in store for the gang in season two, Shawn Levy, one of the show's producers and directors, said it was going to get even scarier.

"I was just in the edit room with the [Duffer] brothers yesterday," Levy said to 'The Hollywood Reporter' referencing the show's creators.

"We were like, 'This is definitely darker. I hope everyone's down with this.' Because the threats to Hawkins and to our characters are bigger, darker, oftentimes scarier"
"People who found season one too scary for them probably you're going to be more scared by season two. But again, the best thing I can tell you is, through it all, it's got the best heart."
Despite the extremely high expectations for the show, the good news is that Netflix has already agreed it'll run for a third season.
