Mad Max … The Boy Who Came Back to Life … The Pumpkin Patch … The Palace … The Storm …
This list of chapter titles revealed in Netflix’s first trailer for season two of Stranger Things leaves some room for assumptions, and lots of room for speculation.
The streaming service revealed Wednesday that it’s continuing this summer’s breakout series with nine new episodes—one more than the show’s eight-episode first season—set to air in 2017.
Season two is set in 1984. Writers, creators and executive producers Matt and Ross Duffer are returning, along with producer 21 Laps, and executive producers Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen.
At the Television Critics Association summer press tour, the Duffer brothers spoke about how they left some “dangling threads at the end” of season one to set the stage for a season two.

This time around, the brothers say the drama for season two will build slowly, rather than starting with a big event like in the first season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They’re approaching the season like a blockbuster sequel, striving for a James Cameron approach where “the reasons his sequels are as successful as they are is he makes them feel different without losing what we loved about the original.”
