Oh happy day! When I get to announce that finally, it’s back…

Stranger Things (Season Two)

Yes, I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in my excitement of this. If you are struggling to remember what happened in season one, this handy catch up we posted last week is worth a watch… Season One Catch Up. Also worth a quick read is our handy list of times that season two will be available in different regions. For those of you who know nothing of Stranger Things (is there anybody out there?) The catch up will possibly blow your mind. I’d suggest you watch season one with urgency so you can catch up. Set in the 80’s a group of boys lose their best friend Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) to the ‘Upside Down.’ Season two set in 1984, Hawkins, Indiana, sometime after Will’s Return, threat is still imminent from the Dungeons & Dragons (80’s cult board game) inspired ‘Demogorgon.’
