Stranger Things came from the nether realms of Netflix’s streaming service, where it introduced us to our spunky child protagonists and one creepy alien environment. That was on July 15, 2016. Production is now ramping up for a second time around in the Upside Down.
We have evidence in a photo, below, released on Stranger Things' Facebook page. It’s a simple black-and-white photo of the younger members of the cast, sitting down for a table read.

This confirms the rumor we’d been speculating about, whether or not the missing Eleven would return. But with actress Millie Bobby Brown front and center, there’s no doubt the psychically talented girl will be back to put the strange in Stranger Things.
Note that the characters aren’t just upside-down. The names are also backward, which means we’re getting a mirror image, too. Does this mean there’s more than one alternate universe for our heroes to contend with? Time, and producers the Duffer Brothers, will tell.
