The good news is, we now have plans in place for Halloween 2017.

Hollywood superstars in the making.
Every year a deluge of new talent floods the movie theatres and 2016 was no different. Some stars, the likes of Sofia Boutella ('Star Trek Beyond'), Travis Fimmel ('Warcraft'), Zoey Deutch ('Why Him?'), Jack Huston ('Ben-Hur') and Aidan Turner ('Poldark'), are the kind of actors that have been around for a while, but have only this year managed to land leading roles. Others have broken through with immense force after almost total obscurity:

1. Millie Bobby Brown - Matt and Ross Duffer couldn't have imagined the kind of success their 80s inspired supernatural TV series 'Stranger Things' would have, but arguably the world's favourite thing about that show is Millie Bobby Brown, who plays telekinetic labrat Eleven. For a while it was up in the air as to whether or not she would return for the second series given the mysterious fate of her character in the first season's final episode, but recent confirmations suggest we haven't seen the last of her.
'A Stranger Things Christmas' carries on from where season one ended.
'Stranger Things' has been turned into a 'Peanuts' style cartoon called 'A Stranger Things Christmas' which has now gone viral. Apparently kicking off from where season one left off, it follows the same format as 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' and features several of the main characters as Charles Schulz cartoons.

The short film was created by filmmaking duo Leigh Lahav and Oren Mendez and follows Will Byers in the aftermath of his rescue from the Upside Down. Despite being apparently safe and well at home, he just can't shake the feeling that something's wrong with him. Possibly because he keeps regurgitating alien slugs.
Some fans have got close to the truth.
There are too many fan theories out there about what will be unveiled in season two of 'Stranger Things' to list, but directors Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer have apparently really enjoyed reading them all. They confess that some fans have even managed to get dangerously close to the truth.
Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and Millie Bobby Brown have their own theories
The Duffer Brothers have had a fun time reading up on all the theories regarding their Netflix show, which premiered in July and was immediately renewed for a second season for 2017. So many mysteries remain, so many questions left unanswered... but that only means more possibilities. And with the ambiguity of the episode titles for season two, Reddit has exploded with potential plotlines.

New characters, new inspiration and new themes.
Netflix original series 'Stranger Things' continues to be a major talking point everywhere, and everyone's getting more and more excited for the season 2 premiere next year.

Millie Bobby Brown and Winona Ryder return.
Finally, it has been confirmed that we can expect another season of the much-loved Netflix original series 'Stranger Things' to arrive in the coming months, which means more incredible action from the likes of Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp and Winona Ryder. Bring on 2017!
Stranger Things returns for season 2
For those who haven't yet seen the 8-part first season of sci-fi horror 'Stranger Things', it follows the mysterious disappearance of a young boy named Will (Schnapp) and the arrival of an unusual shaven-headed girl with poweres of telekinesis, who is initially only known as Eleven (Brown). With the help of Eleven, Will's friends find out what's going on behind Will's absence, and eventually he is reunited with his relieved mother Joyce (Ryder).
We were left with one hell of a cliffhanger, however, when Eleven became trapped in the same alternate dimension that Will was in, and it seems that the horror is not over for Will himself as we see him coughing up that weird slug in his bathroom.

In a newly released short clip, the names of the next nine episodes were unveiled ('Madmax', 'The Boy Who Came Back To Life', 'The Pumpkin Patch', 'The Palace', 'The Storm', 'The Pollywog', 'The Secret Cabin', 'The Brain' and 'The Lost Brother) as Netflix revealed: 'In the Fall of 1984, the adventure continues'. So all we know from that is that season two is a continuation of season one, rather than a prequel.
'Stranger Things' debuted on July 15th 2016, and became a critically acclaimed success. Critics adored the talented cast and The Duffer Brothers' homage to Steven Spielberg movies and Stephen King stories. The soundtrack, created by Austin electronic outfit S U R V I V E, was also a hit and will be released on CD in mid-September in two separate volumes.
'Stranger Things' season 2 is set to arrive in 2017.
Her parents weren't too fond of the idea.
If you watched 'Stranger Things' on Netflix, then you're almost definitely a fan of Millie Bobby Brown; the shaven-headed little girl who plays the mysterious telekinetic child Eleven. If that girl isn't destined for huge things in the future then we don't know who is. But just how did this 12-year-old survive her first daunting head-shave?
Millie Bobby Brown stars in 'Stranger Things' with Winona Ryder
As it turns out, pretty easily. The actress shared a video of herself getting the chop, while pulling funny faces and not shedding a single tear. The hairdresser is seen carefully cutting the hair at the roots and passing each section to another person who appears to lay it out on the side. It sure looks as though their trying to keep all the hair intact, possibly because she's donating her locks to a charity that makes wigs for children with cancer? We hope so.
'Here it is!! The video of me getting my hair shaved for #StrangerThings! Enjoy!' She captioned the sped up clip which featured the Beyoncé song 'Pretty Hurts'. Apparently, her mother wasn't too happy about the whole thing to begin with, but nothing was stopping Millie once the show's producers showed her a picture of Charlize Theron.
'Mad Max: Fury Road was about to come out, so we pulled out a magazine photograph of Charlize Theron as Furiosa and showed it to Millie', said 'Stranger Things' creators Matt and Ross Duffer in an interview with EW. '[We asked] 'Charlize looks totally badass, right?' Millie agreed; Charlize looked badass. And that was it: She agreed to buzz it all off.'
A star is in the making.
We are already desperate for the next season of Netflix Original series 'Stranger Things' now that it's exactly one month on since all eight episodes of season one aired. We definitely weren't the only ones who binge-watched this sci-fi horror adventure in one go, captivated by the acting talent of today's youth.
Winona Ryder also stars in 'Stranger Things'
Will finally returned to his family after a mysterious force rendered him missing, but it seems his torment is not yet over according the the suspenseful conclusion of episode 8 'The Upside Down'. But it's not him we're looking forward to seeing again come season 2, it's his shaven-headed, super-powered girl pal Eleven we are desperate to see.
