Get Ready for STRANGER THINGS to Get Darker in Season 2

Stranger Things was one of Netflix’s breakout hits in 2016, and we’re still eagerly awaiting the second season. And while the first season was a nearly pitch perfect blend of classic kids movies and ’80s-style horror, the new season is set to take a dramatically darker turn. That’s coming directly from executive producer Shawn Levy, and today’s Nerdist News is turning the world upside down to bring you the latest Stranger Things scoops!

Beware of potential spoilers ahead!

Join host, and the only woman never to get lost in Hawkins, Jessica Chobot, as she breaks down Levy’s recent comments about the “darker threats” awaiting the AV Club kids this season. One of those threats may be one of their own. Noah Schnapp’s Will Byers will have an expanded role in season 2, and the producers are already singing his praises for being a great performer. The last time we saw Will, he was coughing up tiny monsters and having Upside Down flashes. There’s clearly something wrong with him, and that may be just the beginning.

While the kids are still dealing with last season’s trauma, the unnamed government agency is once again running secret experiments and Dacre Montgomery’s Billy is going to be a more human threat to the group because he’s a psycho bully in the Stephen King mold. As for the non-human threats, the kids may end up missing the Demogorgon when they see the very Cthulhu-like horrors awaiting them this season. In fact, we’re wondering if the Upside Down invasion is happening on a larger scale than we previously believed. What exactly are the Duffer Brothers up to? You know, our office has been infested with Duffers before. Could there be another cameo appearance in this episode?
