'Stranger Things' Season 2 Spoilers, Cast, Release Date: Barb and Dr. Brenner to Return in 'Netflix' Original Series? Stephen King to Write Upcoming Season?
"Stranger Things" have not only caused more people to binge-watch Netflix but have also caused a worldwide phenomenon to bring the 80's back. This is why everyone is googling when "Stranger Things" Season 2 would air.
As of August 22, Netflix hasn't officially announced when Eleven and the gang would return to light up our TV screens but it was speculated that it might return in July 2017.
But before we continue to go about our days aimlessly waiting for the official announcement, there are still questions that have been tormenting "Stranger Things" fans. And one of these is - are we still going to see Barb in Season 2?
As reported by IGN, the Duffer Brothers - Matt and Ross, revealed Barb's fate:
"I can't see it happening. But Barb will not be forgotten. We'll make sure there's some justice for Barb. People get very frustrated, understandably, that the town doesn't seem to be really dealing with Barb. That stuff is all happening. We're just not spending any screen time on it... part of what we want to do with hypothetical Season 2 is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened," Matt said.
However, Dr. Brenner, played by Matthew Modine, is confirmed to return.
"I would say that if we were going to kill Brenner... as an audience member watching the show, if that was his death, that would be very unsatisfying to me - when the monster jumps on him and we cut away," Matt told IGN. "He would deserve much more than that as an ending. So yes, there's a possibility of seeing him again."
Now, there's also a rumor circulating in the interwebz that the King of Horror Fiction himself who have pretty much influenced the show, Stephen King, might write the screenplay for "Stranger Things" season 2.
But alas! The website that posted the rumor is actually a satire news site. As corrected by Snopes, "Stranger Things" Writer and Director Duffer Brothers did not make any declarations that they would hand the writing over to Stephen King or even to any other writers.
"Stranger Things" Season 1 cast include Winona Ryder, Matthew Modine, David Harbour, Milllie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin.
