Synopsis: The second season will take place around Halloween (October 31) of 1984, about a year after the events of the first season, and will explore the “bigger mythology” of Will’s disappearance, according to the Duffers. Levy described the second season as being about the “determined desire to return to normalcy in Hawkins” for Will, his family, his friends, and the other residents in the town affected by the events. Will suffers from “some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder” from his time in the Upside Down, and Joyce is attempting to help him deal with it, while trying to date her old classmate Bob to cover up her own emotions. Nancy and Mike are mourning for the apparent losses of their friends Barb and Eleven, respectively; however, Eleven is still alive and is a “major part of the season”, according to Matt Duffer, and her backstory will be explored during the season. Chief Hopper struggles under the weight of having to cover up for the events of the first season to protect Will and Joyce; while some residents of Hawkins will be aware of these events, “certain people… don’t know what happened”, according to the Duffers. The laboratory, as well as the rift to the Upside Down, remains open and run by Dr. Owens. The characters will face “different kinds of horror” in contrast to the monster from the first season. Parts of the season will also take place outside of Hawkins, Indiana. (from Wikipedia)
