Ok, we’re guessing you’ve now heard of Stranger Things.

The new massive show from Netflix which kicked off on July 15th has become a phenomenon and, like Making a  Murderer last year, everyone is talking about it.

And rightfully so… it’s brilliant!

Now creators Ross and Matt Duffer have confirmed that a second series is a go! And, even better, the show’s executive producers, Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen revealed it will feature the same characters AND introduce new characters that are critical to the story.

Levy told Variety that the first season ended with “questions that merit future stories and future investigation”.


Ross Duffer added: “There’s a lot there we don’t know or understand. Even with ‘The Upside Down,’ we have a 30-page document that is pretty intricate in terms of what it all means, and where this monster actually came from, and why aren’t there more monsters — we have all this stuff that we just didn’t have time for, or we didn’t feel like we needed to get into in season one, because of the main tension of Will. We have that whole other world that we haven’t fully explored in this season, and that was very purposeful. We leave these dangling threads at the end. If people respond to this show and we get to continue this story — we had those initial discussions of where we might go with it. If there was going to be a season two, we would reveal more of that 30-page document, but we’d still want to keep it from the point of view of our original characters”

Matt Duffer went on to add, speaking to IGN: “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.”

Whatever happens, we at FTN Can’t wait to return to Hawkins for a second season… do you agree?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
