Ad of the Day: Netflix confirms Stranger Things season 2 with enigmatic 80s-themed ad

Netflix has confirmed a second series of Stranger Things

The second season of Netflix favourite Stranger Things is poised to debut in 2017, with the simple teaser ad for the show stealing The Drum's Ad of the Day crown.

Set against the backdrop of the 80s, the second series of the supernatural drama will see the eerie storyline from the first season continue.

The mysterious synth-soundtracked ad promoting the Netflix Original sees the show's title sequence interlaced with what appear to be episode titles for the new nine-part series, including 'Madmax', 'the pumpkin patch' and 'the lost brother'

The show's creators, The Duffer Brothers, previously hinted that there would be a second series in an interview with Variety. "We leave these dangling threads at the end. If people respond to this show and we get to continue this story — we had those initial discussions of where we might go with it.

"If there was going to be a season two, we would reveal more of that 30 page document, but we’d still want to keep it from the point of view of our original characters."

Over 14 million people watched the first series of Stranger Things in little over a month according to the ratings startup SymphonyAM.
