'Stranger Things' Renewed for Season 2
Netflix has officially announced the second season for Stranger Things. The show is set to return sometime in 2017 (probably around the same time the first season came out this year). Netflix even took it upon themselves to release a brief teaser, which can be viewed below:
Yes, I'm aware that this isn't really a huge revelation as season 2 has been highly rumored and basically confirmed by many sources already. That being said, it's now officially official. I'm, personally, am in the party that thinks that this show didn't really need a second season, but I guess when there's a gravy train, you gotta keep it chugging.
Of course, I'm not going to deride a season 2 and I'll be there on day one just like everyone else. I just kind of wish that if they were to do a season 2 that they would take the Fargo or American Horror Story route and make it an anthology with new characters and a new story each season. But hey, that's just me.
