Stranger Things Season 2 renewal is already out of the bag courtesy of actor Matthew Modine, but what will the second season of the Netflix sci-fi drama look like?
Speaking to IGN, co-creator Matt Duffer revealed that Season 1 will resolve its central mystery while leaving “dangling threads” for Season 2, which he defines as being akin to a “sequel”:
We wanted to do a couple things with this season. We didn’t want to do The Killing thing. We wanted it to resolve that main thing of Will going missing in the first season. So in that sense, it is like an eight-hour movie. Now, we don’t answer all the questions by the end of the season – there are definitely some dangling threads. The hope is that it feels satisfying but that we left room and that if people respond to it we can go back into this world. But if we do get to go back, it’s not a second season as much as a sequel.
Stay tuned as we await the official Season 2 renewal announcement from Netflix and monitor the status of Stranger Things Season 3…
