Netflix bosses have admitted it would be “dumb to turn down” Stranger Things season 2
By Jay Hunter – Unless you’ve been living in the upside down you’ll have seen or at least heard of Netflix series Stranger Things. Season one of the nostalgic series has ensured nobody has seen what the outside world looks like all summer. Described as The Goonies meets IT, the one question on everyones mind is; ‘when will season two arrive?’
Well, whilst the second season has no official release date just yet, we do have some details on season two. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, co-creator Matt Duffer once again spoke about his desire to use the Harry Potter blueprint for upcoming seasons, stating, “The dream is a Harry Potter situation.” Meaning each respective season would take place one school year later (meaning we could get season two as early as summer 2017).
This would also push our emotional connection with Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin to the foreground as we see them navigate their way through their pre-teen years.
Duffer went on to express these feelings in the interview, saying, “I love watching kids growing up on camera. So the idea seeing where these kids and these characters are one year later is cool to me. And it allows us to explore the mythology of our nether.”
