While season one of Stranger Things snuck up on us, season two has had to deal with an excruciating amount of expectation. Now that it's here, everyone wants to know one thing: is it as good as the hype suggests?

According to Den of Geek, Stranger Things is definitely worth the binge but the site concedes that there are weak points in the plot, too. Here's a roundup of the biggest things to look out for in season two.

Eleven, unquestionably the star of last season, is again at the heart of the show. And for those of you who had hoped for more information on her origin story, you're in luck. Season two focuses on how her search for “home” shapes her as a character.

It's slightly worse news for Mike fans, though, as Will takes over as the emotional core of the show. The review also appreciates that Lucas and Dustin take a bigger step into the spotlight, while the gang gets a new member in Max, who isn’t immediately accepted by everyone.

Various parallel storylines and the evolution of relationships between characters (some more unexpected than others) means everyone’s favorite character will get the attention they deserve.

Season two’s newcomers appear to fit seamlessly into the storylines and the actors’ chemistry is evident in strong debut performances across the board.

One aspect that has changed is the villain formula. According to Den of Geek, instead of two major enemies, season two gives more weight to the shadow creature that haunts Will’s dreams – apparently an easy adjustment for the audience to make.

The ending is supposed to be an insane cliffhanger, so make sure you finish the show before social media ruins it for you. To check out the in-depth review, click here.
