The official titles of six Stranger Things season two episodes have been confirmed with the remaining three being kept under wraps.

The name of each installment was revealed by creators Matt and Ross Duffer following the second season announcement last year, however, there has been some serious change - only one of those titles remain with the other announced titles being completely new.

You can see the titles below - note: it seems that “Super Duper Secret” isn't going to be an epic three-parter but is the way of keeping fans off the scent of what is sure to be some cataclysmic events for the residents of Hawkins, Indiana.

Chapter 1: Dragon’s Lair

Chapter 2: Trick or Treat Freak

Chapter 3: The Pollywog

Chapter 4: Will the Wise

Chapter 5: Dig Dug

Chapter 6: The Spy

Chapter 7, 8, and 9: Super Duper Secret

For comparison, you can find the titles that were announced last year - fit with futile analyses - here.

The episode that remains the same is 'The Pollywog' which was originally billed as episode six, while the seventh, eighth and ninth outings - 'The Secret Cabin,' 'The Brain' and 'The Lost Brother' - have now been shrouded in secrecy.

Going by the series' promotional materials showing Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and co dressed up as Ghostbusters, combined with the fact that the episodes will drop on Netflix on 27 October, it's certain fans will be treated to a Halloween episode with the second installment, 'Trick or Treat Freak' the obvious bet.

Stranger Things season two will see Millie Bobbie Brown, Winona Ryder and David Harbour return alongside new addition Sean Astin.

The Duffer Brothers recently revealed that the forthcoming season has been devised as "a movie sequel," with the finished product being branded simply 'Stranger Things 2' as opposed to 'Stranger Things season 2.'

Stranger Things isn't the only show returning to Netflix in the coming months - the fourth season of dystopian anthology series Black Mirror is set to drop later this year and we spoke with executive producer Annabel Jones who exclusively revealed non-spoiler details about what to expect in each episode.
