It's a bit of a wait but it's something we are very much willing to wait for. Although they'll want to get their act together and start filming before all those kids grow up.
Netflix today confirmed that the surprise hit of the year, 'Stranger Things', will be coming back for a second season in 2017.
In a statement they said:
Stranger Things 2 will debut in 2017. Nine new episodes are confirmed for the second season.
Stranger Things 2 will be produced by 21 Laps for Netflix. Executive Producers Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen and the Duffer Brothers will all return for the second season.
No cast announcements have been made yet, but one can only assume that everyone's favourite friendship quartet will be returning to our screens, alongside Winona Ryder, David Harbour and breakout star of the year, Millie Brown.
The only hints we're given are what we presume are the (somewhat spoilery) episode titles 'Madmax', 'The Boy Who Came Back To Life', 'The Pumpkin Patch', 'The Palace', 'The Storm, 'The Pollywog', 'The Secret Cabin', 'The Brain' and 'The Lost Brother' that are shown in the video below, and the fact that the show will pick up "in the fall of 1984", a year after the drama of season one.
