One of your favourite characters is baaaack...

How well are you coping with your Stranger Things withdrawal symptoms so far? Dressing up as Eleven for Halloween seems to have taken off the edge for us but honestly, we're not sure we're going to be able to survive the winter. With that in mind, imagine our surprise when we caught wind that the first picture from the set of Stranger Things Season 2 was circulating around the internet...

Brace yourselves, it reveals the return of a much loved character!


You ready? Here it is. Your FIRST look at the hotly anticipated second season has arrived and it's... iconic.

LOL, what did you expect? 

We always knew in our heart of hearts that Hopper would be making a return to Hawkins, Indiana for round two but this was ~exactly~ the confirmation we needed. Always looking out for the community, such a great chief!

The last time we saw everyone's favourite neighbourhood police chief, he was placing some food and Eggo waffles inside a box in the middle of the woods - presumably for Eleven who got snatched by the Demogorgon in the season finale. We mean, it's a lovely gesture but... there's much more pressing matters at hand Hopper, for christ sake!


Netflix also slid into our DM's earlier this week with some *ExCLusIvE* never-before-seen deleted footage from the first season, and it changes absolutely everything.


Wow... can't believe that never made it into the final cut! *smirk emoji*

We'll be sure to let you know when the *actual* first look at season two drops, until then... stay thirsty and run if you see the lights flicker.
