Stranger Things Creators On What To Expect From Season 2

The second season of Netflix’s sci-fi mystery Stranger Things is one of 2017’s most anticipated shows, and it hits the streaming service in October. Now the creators, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, have been speaking about what fans can expect from the upcoming season.

In an interview with Variety, Ross admitted that knowing the show now had a big following had changed their approach to the next season. “The pressure is we know people are going to watch it,” he said. “It’s trying to make something that we think they’re going to like. We’ve tried in the writers’ room to go, ‘Okay, what do we want to see?’ And hopefully people will respond to that as well.

“A lot of the story for Season 2 was figured before the show had come out, so we had the big beats figured out already,” Matt continued. “Some of the stuff that fans had been asking for, we wanted the same stuff. But the point is not to give everyone what they think they want. Because I don’t think they really know what they want.”

The Duffers wouldn’t give many plot details about Season 2, but did tease that it would feature new monsters. “Hiding the monsters can be more effective than seeing [them], so restraint can be a good thing,” Ross said. “I can’t talk too much about them, but they’re cool.”

However, they did confirm that Barb, the fan-favorite character who met a gruesome end in Season 1, wouldn’t be back. “There’s no resurrecting Barb. It was really surprising how much she took off,” Matt said. “I related to her, so I think other people did as well.”

In April, David Harbour, who plays cop Jim Hopper, revealed that he had seen the finished first episode of the new season. “I’ve seen Episode 1 and have seen a lot of the shooting at the monitor and I can honestly say that I am so excited for you all to see this season,” he said. “It’s so fun and dark and complex. The characters all get to deepen and develop and we get to take on even greater demons (inner and outer). The story moves so fast in the middle and the tension is so high.”

A first teaser was screened during the Super Bowl in January–check it out here.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
