In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Duffer brothers shared that they don’t want to convert the series into an anthology, though after a good brainstorming they did consider forwarding the story to a different decade. Having said that, the duo confirmed that Season 2 is indeed going to be set in 1984 and going to feature new characters.

“For us, there’s still more story here [in the 1980s], there’s still things that are unresolved,” Ross explained.

In the Season 1 finale, we got to see how Eleven sacrificed herself to defeat the faceless creature and how Will (Noah Schnapp) was in early recovering process from his ordeal.

The creators did not confirm whether El would be back next season. Ross Duffer only addressed that the character’s return is still “up in the air.”

Furthermore, Ross did tease the fans by stating that the opening scene of Stranger Things Season 2, Episode 1 is not going to show Hawkins.

“We obviously have this gate to another dimension, which is still very much open in the town of Hawkins. And a lot of questions there in terms of, if the Monster is dead, was it a singular monster? What else could be out there? We really don’t go in there much until they go in to find Will at the end. So we’ve opened up this doorway, and to us, it’s exciting to talk about, like, what else is behind there? There’s a lot more mystery there to be solved.”

Among the new characters is a 12 to 14-year-old girl called Max, who according to TV Line is described as “tough and confident” and is going to use a skateboard to get around Hawkins. Another character is going to be Max’s “very muscular and hyper-confident” older brother Billy. The third addition to the cast is Roman, a gender-neutral character who “suffered a great loss at an early age and has been seeking revenge ever since.”

According to Telegraph, there are chances that Eleven will be replaced by Max.

According to a Variety interview, the creators teased the fans that, when Eleven destroyed the monster, something terrible must have happened to her.

“Something happened to [Eleven] when she destroyed and killed that monster and we don’t know where she went. But we like the idea of potentially putting her and Hopper together.”

In other news, many fans of the show were upset about Barb’s (Shannon Purser) end in the show. Matt Duffer addressed this issue during his conversation with IGN and stated that Barb has not died in vain, and the upcoming season will explore the after effects of her death.

“So part of what we want to do in the hypothetical Season 2 is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened. Everything was left a bit of a mess in that there’s a little bit of clean-up to be done. It was so messy that it’s impossible to completely clean that up so a lot of it bubbles to the surface in Season 2.”

Netflix’s Stranger Things Season 1 has indeed created a cult following, as the show is a pure homage to ’80s pop culture, John Carpenter, George Lucas, and Steven Spielberg’s earlier films like Stand By Me. With an exciting cast and fantastic writing, fans should expect another astounding season, which will probably be released in 2017.
