The second season of Stranger Things is still months away, with a Halloween 2017 release date. However, information on the next chapter about a group of kids from the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, are starting to creep out.
The show was already a weird mix of the 80s sci-fi and supernatural horror genres, but according to one cast member, the second season will really up the scares.
Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler, recently told Emmy Magazine that the next season will take even more queues from classic horror movies.
“I think this season will be a lot [darker]. A lot more horror oriented,” Wolfhard said. “I think people are going to like it more than the first season.”
While the demogorgon and the Upsidedown world from Season 1 were already plenty terrifying, but Wolfhard says the characters will face more “disturbing” challenges in Season 2.
“The great thing about this season is you get to see insights into each character on their own,” said Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin. “You’re going to see a lot more into the lives of how the characters are coping with what’s been going on…. They’re all very emotionally scarred. They feel alone because their best friend is back and he’s not acting like their best friend anymore. He’s changed.”
