Stranger Things season 2

In an age in which many of the plot beats of every geek-friendly property are known about months in advance, it’s something of a modern miracle that Stranger Things appeared seemingly out of nowhere last year and took the world by storm. But that anonymity vanished like Barb on a diving board when the show’s popularity exploded, and the second season has become one of the most anticipated television events of the year.

Thankfully, it doesn’t sound like the showrunners are scraping the bottom of the barrel for follow-up material. In a new interview, executive producer and director Shawn Levy reveals that series creators/showrunners the Duffer Brothers actually had too many ideas for a second season, and some of them are being saved for a potential season 3.

Stranger Things season two

Back in November filming began on Stranger Things season two. Plot details are mostly under wraps, but creators Matt and Ross Duffer, the cast, and executive producer Shawn Levy (Uncharted) have occasionally shared some information on what to expect. In a recent interview, Levy, who returned to direct two episodes, called next season “bigger and potentially darker in its stakes.”

Below, read what else Levy had to say about Stranger Things season two.

Stranger Things Steven Spielberg Influences

One of the major reasons that Netflix’s hit sci-fi series Stranger Things works so well is because it feels like a mash-up of several different sci-fi classics from the 1980s. But easily one of the largest influences on the series from The Duffer Brothers is director Steven Spielberg.

The visual style of the director of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and some would say Poltergeist, (which Spielberg didn’t officially direct) is all over every episode of Stranger Things, and now a video shows us a bunch of the similarities between the work of Steven Spielberg and Stranger Things.

Stranger Things

Unlike some of the kid-led adventure movies of the 1980s it evoked, Stranger Things spent quite a bit of time with the adults during the first season of the popular series. Ross and Matt Duffer‘s decision to do so paid off because of Jim Hopper (David Harbour), who, in particular, helped make season one of the sci-fi show significantly more dramatic. Hopper is returning for the second season of Stranger Things, which Harbour teased at New York Comic-Con along with star Millie Bobby Brown.

Neither actor revealed any plot details — why would they? — but Harbour discussed what we should expect from some of the characters. Below, read what the actor had to say about the Stranger Things season two relationships. (Note: SPOILERS are ahead.)

Stranger Things season two

Stranger Things season two begins shooting next month. Since cameras haven’t started rolling yet, we don’t know much about what The Duffer Brothers have planned for their follow-up to the wildly popular first season, but they’ve been sharing bread crumbs of information now and then. Producer and director Shawn Levy hasn’t released any new revelatory information about season two, either, but he does say the next season will feature some “next-level” stuff and that the show will age along with its young characters.

Below, Shawn Levy discusses Stranger Things season two.
