Hollywood’s hottest director duo are back
The following article contains spoilers for Stranger Things – season 1
By Jay Hunter – IGN recently sat down with Stranger Things creators, The Duffer brothers to talk about their (yet to be confirmed) second season of the nostalgia fuelled super-hit and the fate of two characters in the show.
First up is Barb, who was last seen looking all but deceased in the Upside Down. When asked if the popular character would return in season two, they had this to say
“I can’t see it happening” came Matt’s response. “But Barb will not be forgotten. We’ll make sure there’s some justice for Barb. People get very frustrated, understandably, that the town doesn’t seem to be really dealing with Barb. That stuff is all happening. We’re just not spending any screen time on it.”
They continued to say “It’s not like her parents are like ‘Oh Barb left. She died!’ Season One actually takes place over the course of six or seven days – it’s a really short period of time. So part of what we want to do with hypothetical Season Two is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened.”
So whilst it’s looking (upside) down for Barb, if you’re a Brenner fan things could be looking up! Brenners death happened off screen, which as we’ve learnt by now is always an open ender:
“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. He would deserve much more than that as an ending. So yes, there’s a possibility of seeing him again.”
We’ll have more details on season two of Stranger Things as it develops.
