Stranger Things 2 is the much anticipated second season of the Netflix Original Series.

The nine-episode-season is starring Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven/Jane, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, and Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair.

Directed by Matt and Ross Duffer, Stranger Things 2 is a follow up to the cliffhanger in the first season. After the drama of the lights, demogorgon, and the upside down, the newest season does not disappoint with the new challenges of the mind-flayer and Eleven finishing what she started.

After the first season gained popularity, many things were anticipated like Mike and Eleven’s relationship, how Will would adjust to life after being in the Upside Down, if there were more people with powers like Eleven, the Snowball Dance, and of course justice for Barb. With all of these things to be considered, the writers strung it all together nicely.

An important moment that was unexpected and a stretch from the style of the previous season, was when Eleven united with somebody from her past. Eleven’s rebellious side comes out when she runs away from home to see her, and during her visit she learns how to channel her fear and hatred into being more powerful which comes in handy for later in the season.

Overall this season was a great addition to the series. There was great character development, exciting moments, and a good plot line. I would give it five stars.
