If you’re like me and binged Netflix’s Stranger Things and have been waiting for the next season, the company has just announced the release date for Stranger Things 2. The announcement was made in the form of a new poster and a cryptic, but short, chronology of events in Hawkins, Indiana.
- 1953 – Date Unknown – MK Ultra comes to Hawkins
- 1979 – Police Cheif Jim Hopper returns to Hawkins
- 1983 – November 6 – The Vanishing of Will Byers
- 1983 – November 8 – The Vanishing of Barbara Holland
- 2016 – July 15 – Part 1
- 2017 – October 27 – Part 2

So there you have it, on October 27th, you’ll be able to binge on the second season of one of Netflix’s more popular shows. The show obviously picks up where the last season ended, and it’s now 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived. The poster sure hints at something more sinister coming to Hawkins for sure.
