Stranger Things season 1 ended back in July 2016 and since then, fans have been patiently waiting for the next season to arrive. At the end of August 2016, Netflix did renew the series for a second season and confirmed it to release in 2017, but no specific release date was provided by them. Because of this, fans have been left wondering exactly when the next season of their favorite TV series will arrive.

Stranger Things Season 2 To Arrive In July 2017? 

Recently, a new rumor surfaced claiming that Stranger Things season 2 will arrive in July 2017. One thing to keep in mind here is that this is just a rumor and we will only get to know whether it will actually arrive in July 2017 or not until Netflix confirms it. But a July 2017 release date can happen if Netflix follows the release schedule of Stranger Things season 1. Back in November 2016, the official twitter account of Stranger Things posted an upside down image with the caption “back in production.” This indicated that the filming has started for the next season.
