The creators of the show, Matt and Ross Duffer, have tried to keep most details of the upcoming season under wraps, but they did unveil some interesting details about their plans. (SPOILER AHEAD)
“I think we talked like a larger time jump where the kids are older now and it’s a different decade,” Ross Duffer said. “That’s something we batted around from the very beginning. But for us, there’s still more story here [in the 1980s], there’s still things that are unresolved.”
“There’s going to be a lot of new and interesting dynamics that we didn’t see in season 1,” Matt Duffer said. “We will venture a little bit outside of Hawkins. I will say the opening scene [of the premiere] does not take place in Hawkins.”
“We kinda just peeled back the curtain and revealed a tiny bit of the Upside Down,” he continued. “So we definitely want to explore a little bit more. There’s a lot we don’t know about the Upside Down at the end of season 1.”
“We obviously have this gate to another dimension, which is still very much open in the town of Hawkins,” Ross Duffer said. “And a lot of questions there in terms of, if the Monster is dead, was it a singular monster? What else could be out there?”
“We really don’t go in there much until they go in to find Will at the end,” he added. “So we’ve opened up this doorway, and to us it’s exciting to talk about, like, what else is behind there? There’s a lot more mystery there to be solved.”
