'Stranger Things' Producer Says Season Two Is Defs Happening
If you take E.T., Poltergeist, The Goonies and Stand By Me, throw in some Winona Ryder, four Dungeons & Dragons-playing boys and one very spooky little girl, you get Stranger Things — the best thing we've seen on Netflix in a long while, and probably the only show that has made us genuinely nostalgic for the 80s. *Makes Stranger Things mixtape*
So here's some great news for everyone who has already binged the first season and now feels lost without Dustin's lisp all up in their lives: executive producer Shawn Levy has said that the Duffer brothers are going to continue the show with the same characters rather than switching things up Fargo style and going the anthology route.
"We definitely are hopeful to go several more seasons. And the plan is to continue with this set of characters while introducing a few critical key new ones next season," Shawn said in a recent interview, adding that they are "in love with their cast and characters" so they aren't ready to give them up yet. "Things end up being resolved to some extent at the end of season one, but not entirely. And that's why we're so hopeful we get another few seasons to live with these people a little longer."
Actor Matthew Modine, who plays evil government guy/Eleven's sorta dad, also confirmed in a video interview that there would definitely be a season two.
No official word from Netflix yet, but it's only a matter of time.
PS: We weren't kidding about the mixtape.
