Stranger Things Season 2 Ending Explained & Season 3 Theory

Stranger Things is back with a massive slice of 80s nostalgia and a new supernatural threat to keep the residents of Hawkins on their toes.

So, today I’m delving into the second season of Netflix’s critically-acclaimed sci-fi horror series to discuss the ending and some clues about what it means for Season 3.

Stranger Things Season 2 is available on Netflix now!

SYNOPSIS: It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived. Set in Hawkins in the fall of 1984, the story continues as supernatural forces once again begin to affect the town. While the season will service the first season’s core cast and characters first and foremost, several new characters have been revealed: tomboy Max and her older step-brother Billy, a woman named Roman connected to Hawkins Lab, RadioShack manager Bob Newby, Department of Energy agent Dr. Owens and disgraced journalist-turned-conspiracy theorist Murray Bauman.
