Caution: spoilers ahead!
Ever since the first trailer for the Netflix series Stranger Things debuted, there was major buzz around the nostalgia-driven thriller about a group of kids in the 1980s who get caught up in a terrifying mystery involving a telekinetic girl, otherworldly dimensions, and a monster unleashed on their small town. For those who binged their way through the first season, one of the biggest remaining mysteries was whether the acclaimed show created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer would indeed get a second season.
Much to the delight of sci-fi fans of all kinds, that question has now been answered with the announcement of a second season coming in 2017. So what do we know about the show’s impending return? Here are all the details so far.
Seeing is believing
Production on the second season of Stranger Things officially kicked off in November and the occasion was marked by the release of an official photo of some of the young cast members engaged in a script reading.

The photo featured ten familiar faces from the series reading their script at a long table, and was flipped 180 degrees in reference to “The Upside Down” — the name given to the dark, dangerous dimension that played a role in the first season’s events.
“Back in production… see you next year…” read the caption for the photo.
