Stranger Things Season 2 spoilers from the cast of the critically-acclaimed Netflix series suggests that the show will return with a “darker” and “scarier” plot than Season 1, leaving us to wonder: Is someone going to die?
A number of scoops about the show reported by TV Line will quench fans’ thirst for information about the upcoming follow up to the breakout hit from the streaming site as the cast of the series set out on Tuesday night at the FYSee Space in Beverly Hills.
According to the outlet, Noah Scnapp who plays Will Byers—the boy who was kidnapped by the Demogorgon and was rescued from the Upside Down—revealed that Stranger Things Season 2 will come out “darker and more eerie” than its predecessor.
To top that off, Finn Wolfhard who stars as Mike Wheeler teased that fans should look out for what happens to Noah’s character. Gaten Matarazzo who stars as Dustin Henderson added that the gang knows something is wrong with Will since he was rescued “but they are just trying to pretend [nothing] happened.”
“Something happens to Will in the first couple of episodes that’s very, very disturbing,” he said of the Netflix series follow up that is set to premiere this Halloween.
“They know he is not well,” he adds, stating the obvious as Stranger Things Season 1 ended with Will regurgitating something that looks a lot like it came from the Demogorgon.
Those who watched the show would know that during his detainment in the Upside Down, Will was caught by the Demogorgon and had attempted to feed off of him. Setting aside the gruesome details of the scene, it almost looked like Will was a goner—at least until Eleven went out to save the day.
Speaking of Eleven, previous Stranger Things Season 2 spoilers note that the character isn’t really dead despite vanishing into ashes with the villain in Season 1.
In fact, an Entertainment Weekly magazine cover revealed that she will be sporting a new look for Season 2: a head full of dark curly hair which is a stark contrast to her bald head from Season 1.
According to the EW article the accompanies the photos, fans of the series loved Eleven so much that she became indispensable from the show. Millie Bobby Brown who plays the character even shared an experience with fans that made her realize the extent of her fame for her role in the show.
“I went to Manila last year; there were people camping outside the hotel, crying, and literally hyperventilating. I was like, ‘Why do you like me so much? I’m just boring old Millie.'”
Since Eleven is returning, Finn revealed that his character Mike—whose crush on Millie’s Eleven became apparent in Season 1—should get over his loneliness that will be apparent in the first few episodes of Stranger Things Season 2.
“He’s kind of somber. He’s kind of given up on life,” he explained.
“He has no one to fight for until, slowly as the season progresses, he [becomes] more and more like [the] leader he was in the first season.”
On top of that, new characters will be joining them as previous Stranger Things spoilers from Variety reveal American Odyssey’s Sadie Sink is coming to portray Max while Power Rangers reboot star Dacre Montgomery joins the gang as Max’s older brother, Billy.
“He’s a bit of a bully who gives Steve a run for his money. [He’s] a little weird [and] disturbing, but people will love it,” Finn told TV Line of the new addition to the Stranger Things Season 2 cast.
Based on those statements, we cannot say for sure if someone is going to die. However, we do know that a bigger foe is coming as showrunner Ross Duffer of the Duffer Brothers tells the outlet about the horror in the Upside Down being “more up-close and personal.”
“Last season, a lot of the horror and a lot of what was happening with Will was off screen in the Upside down. That’s not the case [in Season 2].”
