Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos has revealed he and co-founder Reed Hastings have already seen the first episode of the second season of Netflix’s smash hit series Stranger Things.
Even though the characters will be struggling to reclaim a sense of normalcy and still reeling from the events of season one, Sarandos says the season two premiere is “fantastic”. Speaking to NME, Sarandos explained:
“I have just seen the first episode of season two. It’s fantastic – it delivers on everything that every fan wants.”
Hasting’s also added that he is expecting even “bigger” things from the second season:
“We have a sense that it’s going to be really big. The reaction and momentum in Netflix internally is building.”
Season two certainly looks to be upping the ante a notch as the entire town of Hawkins, Indiana is now in danger. The sequel season will take influence from the sequels of James Cameron as it aspires to pivot and do something new. Season two has been teased as bigger and darker yet familiar to the series fans fell in love with last summer.
The adventure continues in the fall of 1984 as the world is turning upside down. Season two will explore the consequences of Will Byers’ week spent in the upside down and the portal that is still open at the Department of Energy. The series is currently in production on the fifth episode with Finding Dory director Andrew Stanton at the helm.
