STRANGER THINGS Director Shawn Levy Teases Second Season's Plot And Future Of The Series

Stranger Things surprised everyone when it debuted last July, and production on the second season is officially underway. First season director Shawn Levy has now teased season 2 and more...

It's been just under four months since Stranger Things dropped on Netflix and took televisions and the internet by storm. The horror/sci-fi series wowed audiences with its mysterious story, compelling characters and 1980's horror aesthetic. With only an eight-episode first season, it didn't take long for many to binge that first batch of episodes with a resounding demand for season 2, which was officially announced in August. 

In an interview with Collider, director Shawn Levy confirmed that production on the second season commenced two days ago, revealing that the show will be filming in Atlanta once more, along with how Netflix originally planned to announce the return of Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven“We are filming in Atlanta again. I feel like that’s how the Millie Brown [return] leaked because someone saw her trick or treating in Atlanta. I was so bummed about that because Netflix had this really clever idea of taking a picture at our table read last week and posting it upside down, which is what we did. But then like two days before our clever idea got to debut, a bunch of places were reporting that Millie was gonna be a part of Season 2.”

Levy also teased the plot of the second season, saying it will still revolve around the core group of characters (along with some compelling new additions) trying to find a sense of normalcy in their lives after rhe harrowing events of the first season.  “I’m not gonna say how much time has gone by. It is not the next day, I’ll say that. And there are several new characters who I think several of them are going to be new fan-favorites because they’re great, great new characters. But we are definitely sticking primarily with our core group, and what is different, how are they changed from the experience of last season… maybe ‘normal’ is never possible again. Will Byers was in that Upside Down for a while. So Season 2 is about this determined desire to return to normalcy in Hawkins, in the Byers family, in that group of friends, and it’s the struggle to reclaim normalcy and maybe the impossibility of it.”

Levy, who directed the third and fourth episodes of the first season, revealed that he will do the same for season 2 out of "superstition", and  teased the possibility of a planned third season of the show as well. “We are not gonna be caught off guard and we don’t wanna be making stuff up like the day before we have to write it and make it, so we are definitely optimistic and we have started thinking ahead.”
