Netflix releases final Stranger Things 2 trailer

One of the big things coming up in the next few weeks leading up to Halloween is series two of Netflix’s much-loved cult hit, Stranger Things.

Netflix has taken a more global approach this year, funding series that have come from Poland, Denmark and Sweden.
