Millie Bobby Brown, who plays the role of the “Eleven”, a child with psychokinetic gifts, shared an Instagram post with the caption, “Stranger Things Season 2 has been confirmed”. However, they did say that there will be a total of four new characters in season 2. Unfortunately, we don’t have an exact release date, but we do know it will be sometime in 2017. “We leave that up in the air”, he added.
The second season will pick up a year after the events of the first one.
We’re stoked to see this awesome series return for a second season. He went on to reveal that Hawkin’s won’t be the only setting, stating “We will venture a little bit outside of Hawkins”. So, why are they continuing the story instead of going down the road of an anthology series, as some people have surmised? “I think we talked like a larger time jump where the kids are older now and it’s a different decade”. “That’s something we batted around from the very beginning”.
“Stranger Things” quickly found a huge audience with a storyline and art direction that were very much an homage to 1980s pop culture, specifically the books of Stephen King and movies such as “The Goonies” and “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial”.
The second season will consist of nine episodes, as opposed to the first season’s eight.
21 Laps will be producing alongside executive producers Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen, and the Duffer brothers.
“If we get a musical episode, maybe”, Dyer said.
For those who already watched the ending of Season 1, you witnessed that Will (Noah Schnapp) is safe and alive.
The creators of the show, Matt and Ross Duffer, have tried to keep most details of the upcoming season under wraps, but they did unveil some interesting details about their plans.
