An official release date has yet to be confirmed. However, based on the timings of season one, we can expect the second series to drop next summer.
In an interview with Collider, director Shawn Levy confirmed it would be unlikely that Stranger Things Season 2 would drop before summer. “You can do a little bit of math, we’re not magicians so there’s no way it launches in spring since I just admitted we started filming today, and we’re doing nine.”
Speaking to TMZ in January, Caleb McCaughlin (Lucas) said that filming was still underway for the show – so it’ll need to be a quick turn around if summer is indeed the plan.
Which of the cast are returning? Is Eleven returning?!
Yes! They’re all returning! At least, all of the kids. The Stranger Things Facebook page posted this photo from the first script reading for Season 2. It looks like the whole gang is together again. That means Eleven, Mike, Will, Lucas, Dustin, Nancy, Steve and Jonathan will all be back, alongside new characters Billy and Max, played by Dacre Montgomery and Sadie Sink.
