There aren’t many TV shows that are worthy of their own Super Bowl ads, but last night’s reveal of the Stranger Things season 2 teaser trailer proved that Netflix’s insanely popular original series has definite staying power. And while we may have to wait until Halloween to fully unpack the answers, we’re excited to break down the teaser to uncover the show’s latest mysteries. What does it all mean? Today’s episode of Nerdist News is turning things Upside Down for answers!
Join host, and “Justice for Barb” chairwoman, Jessica Chobot, as she takes us back to Hawkins, Indiana; before pointing out that it’s totally BS for Dustin, Mike, and Lucas to have such perfect Ghostbusters costumes only a few months after the film came out. But that’s just to start! Did you notice the fourth Ghostbuster with the kids? We’re pretty sure that wasn’t Will or Eleven, which means that we may have gotten our first glimpse of Max; one of the new characters coming this season. (Here’s everything we know about season two so far.)
Speaking of Eleven, everyone’s favorite telekinetic little girl is back, and she was briefly seen here with longer hair…presumably so burgeoning star Millie Bobby Brown doesn’t have to keep shaving her head. However, things are looking less encouraging for Will. The trailer gave us a first look at Paul Reiser’s character as he oversaw some experiments on Will. But the bigger question is this: does Will literally bringing the Upside Down back to our world? Because if he’s not just having visions, then the whole town is gonna be in for some particularly nasty surprises.
Even Hopper is left in an explosive situation within a secluded cabin. Could that mean that the Duffer bros. are gonna go full Evil Dead on us? Watch your back, Hopper!
