It is said that Stranger Things season two will be darker and more in-line with a thriller.
Showrunner Matt Duffer said:
“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 2 is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened.”
He also goes on to say that Eleven and Hopper will be closer this season:
“Obviously something happened to her when she destroyed and killed that monster and we don’t know where she went,” he said of Eleven. “Hopper is left with this guilt because he sold her out. We wanted to leave it sort of mysterious exactly what he knows… Have there been sightings in the woods or is he hoping she’s out there or has he already made contact with her? We don’t answer any of that, but we like the idea of potentially putting her and Hopper together.”
