Netflix just made a lot of people very happy, as it announced Stranger Things Season 2 is coming in 2017 and that a bigger mystery is about to unfold this season.

Show creators Ross and Matt Duffe, have confirmed that some of the cast members in Season 1 will return in the upcoming season. This means viewers could expect the return of almost the whole gang. Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Joyce (Winona Ryder) will reprise their respective roles.

However, Ross Duffer admitted that they can’t say for sure if Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) will be coming back.  “We don’t know about Eleven. We leave that up in the air,” he told Entertainment Weekly. Eleven is a girl with mysterious powers who helped in finding a missing middle-schooler, Will.

It was earlier confirmed that fan favorite Barb is not coming back in Season 2. The Duffer brother at least assured that there will be some justice for the character in Stranger Things Season 2. Four new characters, on the other hand, are expected to join the upcoming season.

Meanwhile, the Duffer brothers also confirmed that the hit Netflix original series will never be an anthology but rather a continuing story in the town of Hawkins, Indiana. The duo explained that there are lots of things that remain unanswered in Season 1. Hence, Season 2 will pick up from where the 1980’s set show left off.

During the recent Television Critics Association’s summer press tour, Matt Duffer had teased that there is a bigger mythology coming in Season 2 since there are several things left hanging in the previous season. The brothers also earlier hinted that Season 2 will be a little bit darker.  This led many to speculate that Upside Down will be further explored and the fate of Eleven might also be revealed in Season 2.

Stranger Things Season 2 is scheduled to return in 2017 with nine episodes, which is one episode longer than Season 1.

Here are the Stranger Things Season 2 episode titles.

  1. “Madmax”
  2. “The Boy Who Came Back to Life”
  3. “The Pumpkin Patch”
  4. “The Palace”
