“Stranger Things” Season 2 is slated to release in October this year. Fans are wondering what will unfold in the next adventures of Eleven and her newly found friends. Though the cast and crew have already hinted that the next installment will be darker, one of the producers announced that one character will not be returning.
In a televised interview with Hollywood Reporter, executive producer Shawn Levy affirmed that Barbara “Barb” Holland is totally dead and she will not be rising from it to make a return in “Stranger Things” Season 2. Fans have been yelling justice for Barb since she died in the first season after being abducted by the monster to the upside down world. She was Nancy’s best friend and the spectacle-wearing character was very worried of her friend’s relationships.
Levy further said that the second season will be about things that will disappoint fans but will also make them more satisfied. The producer shared how everyone even celebrities asked whether or not Barb is coming back for “Stranger Things” Season 2. He said that he’ll always remind them that the show already showed her lifeless with a slug coming out of her mouth so she surely will not be coming back. He emphasized that the production is doing well by making sure they follow the story the Duffer brothers want it to be. Levy pointed out that they will not be adhering to any fan services.
“Stranger Things” Season 2 will be set a year after the first season and it will deal with the aftermath of the horrible events. The cast and crew revealed that the second season will be darker and scarier as the main characters delve into phases of loss and disbelief. The main cast will return to reprise their respective roles and young actors Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery will join them in the second season.
