Stranger Things season 2 Superbowl ad will definitely make fans ask for more, or probably an earlier premiere of the second season.
Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Netflix will air a trailer of Stranger Things in the ad breaks for the Super Bowl 51 on Sunday. The publication also shared a photo for the commercial and it features three of the fan-favorite characters of the sci-fi series.
In the picture, Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas Sinclair (Caleb McLaughlin), and Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard) were seen at school while clad in Ghostbuster suits. Their other BFF, Will (Noah Schnapp), is missing in the photo as well as Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).
Will had been successfully rescued from the Upside Down world. However, it seems like his days from the dreaded place is not yet over. At the finale of the first season, Will was seen coughing up some kind of slug at the bathroom sink.
Eleven, on the other hand, vanished after she defeated the Demogorgon. Brown had been confirmed to return in season 2.
What We Know So Far in Stranger Things Season 2
Stranger Things Season 2 will take place in 1984, a year after the events of the first installment. The show’s bosses had so far offered limited details of the upcoming season.
Executive producer Shawn Levy previously teased that although the Demogorgon was destroyed in season 1, the evil will still exist in the forthcoming season. He added that it will be bigger but a potentially darker season.
Levy also assured that the main characters of the show will be coming back this season. “The threat, which in Season 1 was to Will Byers, has grown. That’s all I’m going to say! But, I will say Season 2 has a bigger cast and is definitely loyal to the kind of magical storytelling that we established in the first season. It’s character-based and still about our core group of characters,” he told to Vanity Fair.
So far, the only confirmed character that is not coming back is Barb (Shannon Purser). Nancy’s (Natalia Dyer) BFF was captioned and killed by the Demogorgon in the early part of Stranger Things season 1.
Show creators Matt and Ross Duffer, however, assured Barb’s fans that her presence will still be felt in season 2. The Duffer brothers added that justice will be served for the grandma glasses- and mom-jeans-wearing character.
Meanwhile, Levy said in another interview that new characters will be introduced in the second season. The upcoming installment will also star Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Paul Reiser, and Sean Astin.
Stranger Things season 2 is expected to premiere in July 2017 on Netflix.
