Here's everything we know about season 2 of Stranger Things

*SPOILERS AHEAD*

Most Popular

If you haven't dedicated your heart, soul, and at least 90% of your brain to Stranger Things, then your priorities are quite literally Upside Down, my friend. The irony.

For those of you who've finished Season 1 of the series, the obvious question concerns the fate of Will, Mike, Eleven, Dustin, Jonathan, Nancy, Steve in Season 2, which, by the way, is DEFINITELY HAPPENING.

Well, the creators of the show, The Duffer Brothers, sat down with IGN UK to share a load of information about what they've got planned for Season 2 of Stranger Things, and it's fair to say we learned a lot.

1. It will be set in 1984 - a year on from the first season.

The Duffer brothers were kind of fangirling over this year in particular, as a bunch of really famous pop-culture movies came out that year - in particular Ghostbusters, Temple of Doom, Karate Kid, and Gremlins.

2. It's going to be a hell of a lot darker.

"We like thinking of these as movies, and it's going to feel very different, and I'm sure that a lot of people are going to prefer Season 1, but I think a lot of people will prefer Season 2, because I think it's going to be a little darker, and a little weirder," Matt shared. "I think we feel like we have a license to go a little weirder in this season, so that's been a lot of fun.

3. There's going to be a new 'tension' to resolve.

Ross Duffer compared Season 2 to being it's own complete little movie, saying that after the return of Will Byers at the end of Season 1, 'a new tension' will have surfaced for the gang to face. Intriguing.

4. There will be justice for Barb.

Sad news regarding the fate of Barb, because it looks like she's definitely not going to be making a reappearance. The good news is that the Duffer brothers have assured fans that Barb won't be forgotten: "We'll make sure there's some justice for Barb". 

5. Jancy might potentially rise.

Do you ship Jonathan and Nancy into the next millennia? Well, it *might* still happen.

 "Jonathan is a complicated guy. He's not the smoothest when it comes to dealing with girls. He's never had - in my eyes anyway - he's never had a girlfriend. So he doesn't really know what the hell he's doing," Matt explained.

"Whereas Steve knows what he's doing. I feel it's very realistic. Some of it is just me still angry about High School, in a very immature way. I never got a girl in High School. It didn't happen. If Jonathan ends up getting Nancy that's like a fantasy to me - it doesn't feel very realistic. But maybe we can build to it."

YES, YOU CAN.

6. The series might continue after Season 2.

Admitting that they're still figuring out how long they need to wrap up the story, the Duffer brothers revealed that they don't see it being the kind of series than needs six or seven seasons to get there. 

Oh, and they already know how the whole thing's gonna end, by the way. Blimey.

7. Dustin will undoubtedly kick off about the pudding.

"I'm sure when Dustin goes back to school he gives lunch lady Phyllis some sh*t about it", Ross confirms. Matt continued that now "he's going to get pudding whenever he wants it. That would be my guess."

You do you, Dustin.

8. It looks Dr Brenner definitely isn't dead.

"I would say that if we were going to kill Brenner… as an audience member watching the show, if that was his death, that would be very unsatisfying to me – when the monster jumps on him, and we cut away," Duffer said. "He would deserve much more than that as an ending. So yes, there's a possibility of seeing him again."

Um, can we please fast-forward our lives, now.
