Stock up on waffles, because Stranger Things is back for season two this Friday, just in time for Halloween. If you're looking to revisit the upside down, here's what you need to know.
Stranger Things is an original series produced by Netflix, and as such, the only place you'll find season two is on Netflix. The good news is, you can watch it whatever regardless of your package. If you need a refresher, Netflix's three subscription options are as follows:
- $9.99 per month: Standard definition, stream on one device
- $13.99 per month: High definition, stream on two devices at once
- $17.99 per month: 4K, stream on four devices at once
Stranger Things is available to stream in 4K, so if you've got a 4K ready TV - and a fast enough internet connection - it might be worth springing for Netflix's top tier.
If you're new to Netflix, you can take out a month long free trial. Since Netflix drops every episode of its original productions in one go, you could race through all of Stranger Things season one and two in a month without paying a cent, if you really wanted to.
Netflix is available on pretty much every device around. This include iOS, Android, Windows Store, web browsers on PC and Mac, most smart TVs, Apple TV, Telstra TV, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Wii U.
When can I watch Stranger Things season 2?
All nine episodes of Stranger Things season 2 will hit Netflix at 6:01pm AEDT (NSW, ACT, Victoria, and Tasmania) on October 27. That's 5:01pm AEST (Queensland), 5:31pm ACDT (SA), 4:31pm ACST (NT), and 3:01pm AWST (WA).
Can I watch Stranger Things season 2 anywhere other than Netflix?
The short answer is no. Since Stranger Things is produced by Netflix, it's likely that Netflix will be the only place to view season two for the foreseeable future. The first season has seen a limited edition DVD / Blu-Ray release in the United States, but we've yet to get anything similar here. If the second season of Stranger Things ends up on DVD, there's a good chance it won't be for over a year.
