Netflix just shared visual proof of the focus of "Stranger Things" Season 2.
The cast and crew just gathered for the first table read for the new season, which will stream in 2017. It was already revealed that Millie Bobby Brown's Eleven would be returning, but it was further confirmed by her inclusion in the table read, and in a new tweet from the El actress herself:

Yep, we're literally in the Upside Down already! Prepare to spend a lot of time there.
If you flip the photo (see Netflix/EW image below), you can better see that the table read includes, from left: Sadie Sink (new character Max), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Noah Schnapp (Will), Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Joe Keery (Steve), and Dacre Montgomery (Billy, Max's stepbrother).Season 2 will see the addition of a "tough and confident girl" named Max, who has a complicated history and a "hyper-confident and edgy older stepbrother" named Billy. Matt and Ross Duffer said Season 2 will be "darker" than Season 1 with "a bigger mythology behind what happened."
Matt further teased, via EW, "We hint at where we might go at the end of the season. Will was living in this Upside Down, this other dimension, for about a week, so the repercussions of that can't be good. [The] inter-dimensional rift is still very much open, so that also can't be good."
That's a lot of "can't be good" but it's already looking good to see the cast back at work (albeit without Winona Ryder or David Harbour... maybe they are just outside the frame?). We're ready for more Eggos, so bring 'em on!
