Happy Friday the 13th! The final trailer for Season 2 of Stranger Things on Netflix just dropped. Season 2 premieres two weeks from today on October 27th, the Friday before Halloween.
We’ve seen a few Stranger Things Season 2 trailers so far, as well as some awesome retro posters, but this is definitely the best trailer yet. Why? Because it doesn’t just regurgitate clips that we’ve seen before with a louder soundtrack. This is new footage, and it gives us a deeper look at what we can expect in Season 2 of Stranger Things. I don’t want to spoil anything before you watch the final Season 2 trailer, so just hit that play button below:
Netflix strategically chose the spooky and ominous ‘Friday the 13th’ date to release this trailer because it fits in so well with the motif of this show, both in terms of the Thriller genre and by paying homage to Sci-Fi and Thriller films from the 1970’s and 80’s.
I’ve already made peace with the fact that there’s a great chance Season 2 of Stranger Things could be the biggest letdown in TV history. Netflix has a history of success at this point, and Season 1 of Stranger Things was one of the best seasons in TV history. But, the hype surrounding Season 2 is insanely high and I worry that the level of expectations here simply cannot be achieved. I hope I’m wrong.
