We all knew it was coming, yet we were still surprised. Last Wednesday, Netflix announced the most awaited "Stranger Things" Season 2 which will be scheduled to air in 2017. They also gave hints on what to expect this season. However, it seems like not all the casts will be coming back for sure.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Duffer brothers explained that they were debating on starting the "Stranger Things" Season 2 on different time frame, when the boys have already grown up, but decided on a continuation of the earlier season.
"There's still more story here [in the 1980s], there's still things that are unresolved," Ross Duffer explained.
With that, most of the casts are expected to return, but the brothers didn't give details on Eleven's character.
"We don't know about Eleven," Ross said. "We leave that up in the air."
On the other hand, four new characters will be introduced in "Stranger Things" Season 2. One more episode will also be added, making this season with a total of nine episodes instead of eight. The episode titles were shown in the teaser are as follows:
- The Boy Who Came Back to Life
- The Pumpkin Patch
- The Palace
- The Storm
- The Pollywog
- The Secret Cabin
- The Brain
- The Lost Brother
The setting, unlike the first one will not just focus in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana but will also "venture" outside, Matt explained
"I will say the opening scene [of the premiere] does not take place in Hawkins," Matt added.
It will also explore more on the Upside Down. Did the monster in Season 1 actually died? Is it really the only monster existing? And other mysteries that are hidden in this other dimension.
"We kinda just peeled back the curtain and revealed a tiny bit of the Upside Down," Matt said "So we definitely want to explore a little bit more. There's a lot we don't know about the Upside Down at the end of Season 1."
