Netflix?s Stranger Things has been a huge success during its first season. As a result, fans from across the globe are eagerly wanting to know what season 2 is all about. Here are some details about the upcoming installment.
Earlier this week, reports confirmed that Shawn Levy is again the director of the second season. After the announcement, lots of viewers started asking what Levy would bring into the new installment of the TV series. However, he has managed to keep his mouth shut to avoid any major spoilers ahead of its release date.
On a good note, he did drop some information about the plans in season 2. During an interview with Collider, Levy said, ?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.
Based on that statement from the director, it is safe to assume that Stranger Things season 2 will mainly take place in the Upside Down. Also, it somehow indicated that the upcoming installment is going to feature the struggles of Will to get back into his normal life.
Meanwhile, some new characters have been confirmed to be included in the next season. Reports shared that Roman, Dr. Owens and Bob Newby are the new names everyone should be familiar with. Let us discuss them each.
Roman is going to be portrayed by Danish actress Linnea Berthelsen. According to Netflix?s description, she is an ?emotionally damaged, magnetic woman who suffered a great loss as a child. Although she does not live in Harkins, she is mysteriously connected to the supernatural events at the lab??
Dr. Owens, on the other hand, will be played by Paul Reiser. He is a ?high-ranking member within the Department of Energy on a ?clean-up? assignment, tasked with containing the events of last year.?
Lastly, we have Bob Newby. Sean Astin is going to take the role of a ?kindhearted former nerd who went to highschool with Joyce (Winona Ryder) and Hopper (David Harbour) and now manages the local RadioShack.?
