It is about to be an excellent week for followers of Netflix’s Stranger Issues. As a result of after over a yr of ready and speculating, Season 2 is lastly arriving on the 27th. These additional few months of ready has been excruciating, though it seems that Stranger Issues 2 has been timed to completely sync as much as Halloween– which the boys shall be celebrating within the opening episodes. Mike and his pals have been proven sporting some superior Ghostbusters costumes, however how precisely did Stranger Issues get the rights to the costumes? The Duffer Brothers just lately revealed this course of, which included asking each Dan Aykroyd and Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman for permission.
We obtained to speak to Ivan Reitman on the cellphone as a result of he and Dan Aykroyd needed to approve it. . . . [Reitman] mentioned it was flattering. He learn the scripts. He had seen the primary season or at the least had heard of it or pretended like he had. However they have been actually into being a part of the present. Then they despatched us all these Ghostbusters toys on the finish of the shoot. That is one among my prime 5 most worn-out VHS tapes.
Typically all it’s a must to do is ask. That, and have one of the common and acclaimed new reveals from the previous yr. That most likely helps.
Matt Duffer’s feedback to EW present simply how a lot of a ardour challenge Stranger Issues actually is. The duo of brothers are crafting a narrative crammed with references and moments that they love. Season 1 was jam filled with homages and easter eggs for traditional 80s horror films, and Stranger Issues 2 appears to be like like it is going to be no exception. And fortunately for The Duffer Brothers, Ivan Reitman appears to be a fan of the collection, particularly the upcoming episodes. Now we simply need to cease being so jealous that Reitman obtained to learn the scripts.
Mike and his buddies aren’t the one Stranger Issues characters who’re dressed up as traditional horror/ sci-fi film figures within the new season. Newcomer tomboy Max (Sadie Sink) was proven in a sneak peek clip dressed up as Michael Meyers from the Halloween franchise. Plus, the premiere episode is known as “Mad Max” after the traditional motion movie of the identical title. Total, it appears to be like just like the present’s sophomore season shall be simply as jammed filled with homages and intelligent nods as the primary entry.
It must be attention-grabbing to see precisely how Halloween, and the boys’ Ghostbusters costumes, issue into the narrative of Stranger Issues 2. From the trailers, it actually looks like Will goes to have one other one among his visions of The Upside Down, most probably bringing the primary official look of the Shadow Monster. Hopefully we’ll even be handled to the Halloween costumes of different characters like Nancy, Joyce, and Steve. We’ll simply have to attend a couple of extra days to see.
Stranger Issues will launch its second season in its entirety October 27th on Netflix. Within the meantime, take a look at our fall premiere list to plan your subsequent binge watch.
