STRANGER THINGS | Season 2 Teaser Trailer And Story Direction Details

Stranger things season 2 has been officially announced via YouTube teaser. Show creators, The Duffer brothers, gave Entertainment Weekly some details on what we can expect from a season 2.

On whether it will be a continuation or anthology...

“I don’t think we ever thought anthology, 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. But for us, there’s still more story here [in the 1980s], there’s still things that are unresolved." 

"We don’t know about Eleven. We leave that up in the air.”

- Ross Duffer

On influences for season 2...

“I know movie sequels get a lot of shit, but the ones we look up to aspire to pivot and do something different. There’s Temple of Doom, Aliens, Terminator 2. I guess a lot of this is James Cameron. But he’s brilliant. And I think one of the reasons his sequels are as successful as they are is he makes them feel very different without losing what we loved about the original. So I think we kinda looked to him and what he does and tried to capture a little bit of the magic of his work.”

On what's in store for the Upside Down...

“We kinda just peeled back the curtain and revealed a tiny bit of the Upside Down. So we definitely want to explore a little bit more. There’s a lot we don’t know about the Upside Down at the end of season 1.” 

- Matt Duffer

“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.”

- Ross Duffer

The phrases seen in the teaser are the titles from each episode of season 2.
