The author, whose work is referred to several times during the show's (so far) two seasons, sounded delighted about the show's return on 27 October.
"STRANGER THINGS 2: Ladies and gentlemen, that's how you do it: no bullshit, balls to the wall entertainment," he tweeted. "Straight up."

Stranger Things creators recently revealed main character Eleven was supposed to be killed off at the end of season 1.
"Maybe I shouldn't say this because I like to pretend that it was all planned out, but [the show] was originally pitched as a limited series. So it was like, Eleven was gonna sacrifice herself and save the world and then that was gonna be it," he explained.
He also admitted that plans were made for a follow-up if the original series did well, but Eleven did not feature in any of them.
Ross and Matt Duffer both came under fire after it was revealed that two of the show's child actors were pressured into performing an on-screen kiss in one of season 2's final scenes.
