It may not be released until Halloween, but TV fans are already buzzing about the second season of Stranger Things. In fact, people have been talking up the sophomore season since the first debuted last summer.
It's hard to wait for the new episodes to finally premiere on Netflix. Today however, season two got one step closer to becoming a reality.
Tim Ives, director of multiple episodes of the series, has announced that filming has started on the new season's final two episodes.
Ives posted a picture of this director's chair on Instagram, in front of the woods outside of Hawkins, Indiana. In the post he announced that he was beginning the filming process on episodes eight and nine.
With that in mind, there's probably only a couple more weeks left in terms of filming season two. All nine episodes will debut on Netflix this Halloween.
The first season of Stranger Things starred Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine. The second season will feature Sadie Sink as Max, a tough and confident girl whose appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era, and Power Rangers star Dacre Montgomery as Billy, Max's hyper-confident, and edgy older step-brother.
Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines, Hidden) serve as writer, directors and co-showrunners of the series, and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (The Spectacular Now, Night At The Museum, Real Steel, Date Night). Shawn Levy also serves as director.
