The Year

It’ll take place in 1984, a year after events in Season 1. 

The Episodes

There will be 9 episodes and we even know what they're going to be called: 

  • Madmax 
  • 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 Trailer

They may have only just started production but we've already got a teaser trailer! YES. 

The Vibe

It’s going to be weird and darker than season 1… if that’s possible! Matt Duffer commented, “I think we feel like we have a license to go a little weirder in this season, so that’s been a lot of fun”. He then proceeded to fangirl about all the amazing films that came out in 1984 and how they are trying to “capture a little bit of the magic of those films”. 

The Plot

It will feature another self-contained plot, which we’re totally on board with. Ross Duffer said that “it’s going to be its own sort of complete little movie, very much in the way that Season 1 is” and has confirmed that in Season 2 “there’s a new tension and the goal is can the characters resolve that tension by the end?” 

There Will Be Justice (SPOILER ALERT)

Fear not if you are worrying about Barb. Whilst Barbara will remain dead, “Barb will not be forgotten. We’ll make sure there’s some justice for Barb”. 

The Relationships

Let’s recap. There’s a bit of a love triangle going on in Season 1, with Nancy torn between Steve and Jonathan. In the end, she finally chooses Steve but the writers have revealed that this could actually change. 

“If Jonathan ends up getting Nancy that’s like a fantasy to me - it doesn’t feel very realistic. But maybe we can build to it”, Matt reveals.


The Pudding

Remember when they’re in the school and Dustin discovers a stash of chocolate puddings in the kitchen? But then the monster attack comes and ruins his feast? 

Well, turns out that this might not be the last we see of his desserts. 

“I’m sure when Dustin goes back to school he gives lunch lady Phyllis some sh*t about it”, Ross confirms. Matt continued that now “he’s going to get pudding whenever he wants it. That would be my guess”. 


The Future. 

It’s more than likely that there are a couple more seasons of Stranger Things still to come. 

When asked about the future of the show, Matt said that they’re “still figuring it out to be honest - how much time we need. I don’t imagine it being a long, long serious. It’s impossible for me to imagine a six of seven season series. I feel like we have a story we want to tell. We have an ending that we want to get to and I guess the question is just how long we need to get there”.

Excited much!?
