STRANGER THINGS season 2 sets up much of the current series, which is streaming now on Netflix. Here’s a full recap of what happened in Stranger Things season 2.
What happened in the last series on Stranger Things?
Stranger Things season two continued from the end of the first series when Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) was saved from the Upside Down.
Will returned back to Hawkins, but something was not right with him.
After he had developed a suspicious aversion to heat, which saw his health fail unless he was kept cold.
In the series, it was revealed that this was because he was being controlled by the Mind Flayer, a tentacled creature that controlled all of the Upside Down.
Eventually, Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) was able to save Will using heat, drawing out the Mind Flayer.
Meanwhile, Eleven was able to close the gate between the Upside Down and Hawkins.
This trapped the Mind Flayer and the demogorgons in the Upside Down, which is where they stay – until season three, that is.
Speaking of Eleven, at the start of the series she was missing presumed dead, though we then find out she is hiding out with Jim Hopper (David Harbour).
