New details revealed for ‘Stranger Things’ season two
Fans of nostalgia, Netflix, and ominous synthesizers rejoice: more information about Stranger Things second season has come to light. Officially announced last August, actor David Harbour, who portrays Sheriff Jim Hooper on the series, reveals that the second season will pick up a year after the end of the first. Harbour further elucidates that much of the tension in season two will come from only a small portion of the fictional fictional setting of Hawkins, Indiana understanding the true nature surrounding the return of Will Byers from the so-called “upside-down” dimension.
Reportedly, the new season will also see addition of new characters, played by Sean Astin, Paul Reiser, and Linnea Berthelsen. Astin, in particular, will be the impetus behind the formation of love triangle involving Winona Ryder’s Joyce Byers, according to Harbour.
Perhaps most importantly to fans, though, is Harbour’s admission that the response — or lack thereof — surrounding the disappearance of internet-sweetheart Barb will also play a “central role” in season two.
No release date is yet available for Stranger Things season two, though as the hype continues to build, fans can take solace in the fact that series co-creator Mike Duffer is trying to recreate “a little bit of the magic” of James Cameron for the hit series’ second go-around.
