Millie Bobby Brown and David Harbor were in attendance today at New York Comic Con for a ‘Stranger Things’ panel earlier this morning. We didn’t learn any concrete information, however. We did get a couple interesting bits.
The cast has received the first few scripts and it’s going to be insane. The Duffer Brothers have already said that films such as Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Aliens, and Terminator 2 are the biggest 80’s (and 90’s) influences for the sequel. We can expect the action genre to be injected into the science fiction horror mystery, taking it to the next level like it did with the films of James Cameron. The show is going to have a bigger budget in the next season and they are going to need it.
Can you imagine if they took the kids and dropped them into something like the mineshaft chase scene from the end of Temple of Doom?

I’m not saying anything… but it’s going to be amazing.
If Brown has already received a script for the second season that would most certainly hint at her character’s return, likely in one of the earlier episodes.
Also, Barb (Shannon Purser) was indeed confirmed to be dead.

Eleven has to come back. She is far too iconic of a character for the show to continue without her. David Harbour said in a previous interview with AOL Build that Hopper and Eleven could help each other heal from the wrongs that have been done to them.
Stranger Things 2 will be streaming on Netflix sometime in 2017.
