There’s nothing weird about this.
Netflix announced today that it’s renewed the supernatural drama Stranger Things for a second season. The next chapter will feature nine episodes and will debut sometime in 2017.
The streaming service announced the news in a non-traditional fashion, with a video that offers what seems to be new episode titles like “The Boy Who Came Back To Life,” “The Pumpkin Patch” and “The Lost Brother.” What this means, we’ll just have to wait and find out.
Stranger Things, which features Winona Ryder, David Harbour, and Matthew Modine, has become a breakout hit for Netflix. Because Netflix doesn’t release viewership numbers, we don’t quite know how big, but clearly they were significant enough to merit a return.
