One of our favourite things in the last few weeks was definitely Netflix’s awesome Stranger Things…

And while we know a second season is confirmed (here), we are already pacing the floors in anticipation of that glorious day and wondering what exactly we’ll do in the meantime.

Well The Duffer brothers, creators of the series, have a great idea for how to lead into Season 2.

Matt Duffer said: “You have to do the Harry Potter thing. You have to jump a year. Because like Gaten [Matarazzo, who plays Dustin], his voice has already dropped quite a bit, to the point where we couldn’t even do ADR with him. We had to pitch it way up. It’s dropped. He’s grown. As much as I would love to have it be Christmas right after that, it’s just not feasible, so we’re going to skip a year. They’ll be a year older and all their changes they’re going through, we’ll take that into account and kind of work that into the show.”

However, his brother Ross says this could be a real chance for story-telling possibilities: “It’s also just exciting having these initial conversations about it because the jump allows us to say “what happened in that year?” It actually opens up a lot more storytelling possibilities. These characters have changed and the audience has to sort of fill in those gaps of what went on in that year. To us, it’s exciting. So the fact that we have to make this jump, because of the kids, we’re trying to use that to our advantage.”

When the interviewer suggested a comic series to bridge the gap between the seasons, the brothers went a step further (Ross): “What I really want is a video game!”

And just in case playing as Eleven and her friends in a video game couldn’t get any cooler, Matt adds: “Like an 8-bit… These fans, a lot of them have done this 8-bit video game art that’s blowing my mind (see above).”

We’re trying to remain composed here, but please, please, please, please, please somen

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….
