Everything we know about Stranger Things season 2 (so far)
Will is most likely suffering from PTSD—he’s seeing things from the upside down and can’t quite tell if they’re real or not.
Hopper is attempting to keep all the events of last season, like the disappearance of Barb, a secret in order to protect Joyce and the kids.
Siblings Nancy and Mike have changed and are mourning the (seeming) deaths of friends Barb and Eleven. “She and Mike are both the most screwed-up because they’re the ones who both lost someone,” says co-creator Ross Duffer. “They’re both grappling with that, and we see the effects.”
Max (New female character, 13 years old) becomes pals with the boys and attracts romantic interest from Lucas and Dustin.
Max’s brother Billy doesn’t exactly make friends and Matt Duffer had this to say about him: “Stephen King always has really great human villains. The evil in the real world is often as bad or worse than the supernatural evil, so we wanted to introduce a character like that.”
The rift to the upside down is still open
Dustin will get polliwog-like pet and Gaten Matarozzo says: “It’s a little creature I get to bond with. It’s obviously not from this planet or this dimension.”
