Will Opens The Door To Another Dimension In Latest Stranger Things Season 2 Poster


Young Will Byers opens the door to another dimension in the latest, downright creepy poster for Stranger Things season 2.

Unveiled via Twitter, below you’ll see the haunted Will (Noah Schnapp) essentially staring into the abyss, as that tentacled sky-demon looms overhead. Dubbed the Shadow Monster (Thessalhydra?) by series creators and showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer, this is another sure-fire sign that the youngest Byers will be suffering a potent case of PTSD come October. And if you had spent days wasting away in the Upside-Down, wouldn’t you?

Yes, the Demogorgon may have been reduced to ashes – at the expense of Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven, it seems – but the Duffers have vowed to unleash a horde of new monsters in Stranger Things season 2. And judging by this all-new poster, it would seem Will Byers has become something of a walking conduit of the Upside-Down, given his dreams are plagued with blood-red, apocalyptic visions of sky-demons and decaying plant life.

Either way, Stranger Things will once again mine inspiration from Dungeons & Dragons when it comes to those nightmarish monsters, while Netflix’s hit original has also expanded its human cast in anticipation of season 2.

And so, joining the likes of David Harbour (Hellboy), Winona Ryder and all of those up-and-coming young stars this time around are Power Rangers actor Dacre Montgomery, Sean Astin, Paul Reiser, Linnea Berthelsen and Brett Gelman as Murray Bauman, a “disgraced journalist-turned-conspiracy theorist who is investigating a cold case in Hawkins.”

Poised to expand the world of Stranger Things in a whole new direction, season 2 will be available to stream via Netflix on October 27th. And you needn’t worry about Things overstaying its welcome; according to the Duffer Brothers, a “four or five” season arc is in place for the folks of Hawkins, Indiana.
