A look into the Upside Down, again

Tibernay Beal, Reporter

The first season of the hit sci-fi Netflix original, “Stranger Things” took the world by storm with over 8 million viewers in only 16 days. But, is season two going to have the same reaction?



Ending with a huge cliffhanger that left everyone wanting more, season two couldn’t have come any sooner. To conclude the first season, the gang had rescued their friend from the Upside Down, but it’s going to take a lot of hard work for the small town of Hawkins, Indiana to find a right-side up.

As seen on the trailer for season two that came out during the San Diego Comic-Con, we can clearly see that not everything is back to normal after the town was traumatized by the insane events that occurred last season. For starters, Will (Noah Schnapp) is having a difficult time transitioning back into reality because of what seems to be his sudden flashbacks into the Upside Down. Also, Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and Nancy Wheeler (Natalia Dyer) are mourning the deaths of their close friends Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Barb (Sharon Purser) that died in such heartbreaking ways.

Nearing the end of the trailer, Eleven is shown trying to escape what seems to be the Upside Down. So has Eleven really passed on to the afterlife? How is her return going to play into the new season? Are we in store for an even bigger surprise than the one we endured last season? Nothing is known for certain, except that this new season is our only gate-way into the Upside Down.
