Netflix’s “Stranger Things” was an instant hit in 2016. Many Stephen King fans are included in the vast audience. The series boasted a very eerie-like theme and thus, its fan-base was such. It didn’t take long for “Stranger Things” to become a (pop) cultural phenomenon. The first season managed to attract a viewership of roughly 8.2 million. According to Den of Geek, these viewers were obviously delighted when they discovered that Netflix had officially approved the second season to their favorite show. Fresh images revealing key details of the show via EW have now surfaced online.

The list of pictures includes “Stranger Things” Season 2 covers and a glimpse into what the show’s monster will look like this time.

Plot of the upcoming season

This time, Will is going to be haunted by “Shadow Monster.” One of the pictures also showcases Bob Newby, who is played by Sean Astin. According to a report by The Sun, Newby will be Joyce’s love-interest this time. Another one of the pictures also consists of Billy (played by Dacre Montgomery) and Max (Sadie Sink). Previously, a preview of sorts for “Stranger Things” Season 2 had been provided by EW.

The preview, which was hardly a minute or two long, showed the boys hanging out at their favorite spot. They are seen playing war-like titles at “The Palace” game parlor.

It seems obvious that the show’s creators, the Duffer Brothers, are trying to represent a change in these boys. They ascend from board games to video games – which perfectly represents the setting. Out of the group, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) is seen competing against a mysterious player called “Mad Max,” on the “Dig Dug” machine.

He is seen as being visibly shocked as his high score has long been surpassed by “Mad Max.” It was later revealed that “Mad Max,” is a new character called played by Sadie Sink.

More about the show

This opening scene of the "Stranger Things" Season 2 trailer is then followed up with another sequence wherein the boys are speaking to “The Palace” employee, Keith (played by Matty Cardarople).

Regardless of Keith’s age (34-years-old), he appears to get along with the boys pretty well. This is mostly due to his geeky nature. Meanwhile, Will (played by Noah Schnapp) is seen drifting away from the real-life situation to a more imagination-based flashback. This is where he comes across all the horrible things that took place in the previous season. It is speculated that the fate of many characters will be decided in the upcoming season.

While "Stranger Things" got snubbed at the Emmys, the buzz for Season 2 started early with the first trailer.
