Netflix horror series Stranger Things has just dropped its second trailer. As we previously mentioned, the show is being touted as “a love letter to the ’80s.” Prior to settling with the title Stranger Things, the series was filming under there working title Montauk. Today, we have a second trailer to share with you. If you missed the first one, you can check that out right here!
Netflix is essentially batting a thousand at the moment, so I have high expectations for this one. You can check out the second official trailer for yourself in the player below.
The program revolves around the disappearance of a young boy. It follows the plight of his family and friends who dedicate their lives to finding him after he vanishes. What the boys friends and family soon discover is that there is much more to the situation than meets the eye. They learn that government agencies, and supernatural forces play a key role in the lad’s disappearance.
Winona Ryder will be playing Joyce, the mother of the missing boy. In the quest to find her son, she must challenge herself to rely on inner strength she didn’t realize she possessed.
The previous trailer focused a lot more on the intrigue and supernatural elements of the series, while this latest incarnation is more focused on the drama that occurs in the wake of a young boy’s disappearance.
Matt and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines) are slated to write and direct all eight episodes of the upcoming series. The pair will also be pulling executive producer duties alongside Karl Gajdusek (Last Resort), who will also be serving as the showrunner. Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen (Night at the Museum) will also be serving as executive producers. The show is currently set for a July 15, 2016 premiere.
