One of the most talked about shows this year has been “Stranger Things”. Without a doubt, the current season tops the first one. Although it does take an episode or two for the show to get interesting, once it does you will be hanging off the edge of your seat until the very end.

The first episode picks up right where the last season left off. “Stranger Things” still takes place in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana in the 1980s.

Will transitions into reality from the Upside Down and is reunited with his friends; Mike, Dustin, and Lucas, not to mention a new member joins the pack later on, too. Everything seems like it goes back to normal before Will went missing, but things take a dramatic turn, leaving you full of fear and excitement.

In case you need a recap, Barbara is still dead and Chief Hopper is well, you know, still Chief Hopper but with a slight change of heart. The portal to the Upside Down is still open, but you probably aren’t surprised because this season probably wouldn’t exist without it.

Without giving away too many spoilers, yes, Eleven makes a comeback and yes she is still obsessed with her Eggos, even if they are spruced up a bit this season. Her psychokinetic abilities remain during season two, but you’ll also discover someone who is just her, as well.

You will also get to hear a little bit about Chief Hopper’s daughter, Sarah, as well, and the continuation of the love triangle we know as Jonathan, Nancy, and Steve is very much alive.

Throughout the show, you’ll discover more about Eleven’s background and family, which is something that isn’t really touched upon in season one. You’ll get to see a side of her that you’ve never seen before, including being involved in an action packed police chase.

There are many new characters you’ll meet but also have to say goodbye to a few. There are many flashbacks throughout the entire season, so keep an eye out for those. Not everything appears to be what it seems this season, so be ready to grab some eggos, become addicted, and binge-watch “Stranger Things” two.
