If you haven't yet watched Stranger Things, best turn away now because we'll be talking about some specific spoilers.
Still here? Good.
So, by now, you'll have finished Stranger Things and are undoubtedly gagging for another season. Worry not. In an interview with Variety, the Duffer Brothers confirmed that they've outlined a thirty-page document which has set out next season and where each and every character will play into the story.
However, it's worth pointing out that Netflix hasn't officially announced and confirmed that Stranger Things is getting a second season yet. But, on the other hand, Dr. Bennett AKA acting legend Matthew Modine was recently interviewed and said that, yes, a second season was coming. Moreover, in said interview, the Duffer Brothers did say that they've got big plans for the second season.
Our guess? Netflix would be very, very stupid not to renew it for a second season.
Let's get to what's in store for the second season. The big point to take away is that Eleven, the young girl with the psychic powers, didn't exactly die. In fact, she vanished. So says Matt Duffer, one of the showrunners, who explains that "something happened to her when she destroyed and killed that monster and we don’t know (where) she went. Hopper is left with this guilt because he sold her out. We wanted to leave it sort of mysterious exactly what he knows."
"Have there been sightings in the woods or is he hoping she’s out there or has he already made contact with her? We don’t answer any of that, but we like the idea of potentially putting her and Hopper together."
What's more, the Duffer Brothers also explained a little bit about why Nancy decided to take back Steve and his amazing hair. "We made that month-long jump at the end of the season, and we don’t exactly know what happened in between. We feel like we hinted at it in the hospital scene where we’re seeing Jonathan with his brother, and how happy he is, whereas Nancy obviously still has this tremendous guilt and anger over what happened to Barb. She’s lost someone, so even though there is a victory, it’s certainly bittersweet for Nancy and she needs someone in that time."
As it stands, Stranger Things has received huge praises from critics alike. Our own Fiona Flynn called it one of the best shows on Netflix right now and has scored incredibly high on iMDB, Metacritic and even Stephen King - who was a huge influence on the show - tweeted about his love of the show.
There's got to be a second season, right? Right?
