TV Line reports sources close to the production have confirmed Millie Bobby Brown will indeed be making her return as Eleven.

While Netflix declined to provide a comment to TV Line we do have another piece of evidence that suggests not only will Eleven be back, but she will be back in the first episode of season two.

A photo posted to Instagram and Twitter by Gaten Matarazzo last night shows the kids dressed up for Halloween ready to go trick or treating in Atlanta. To the right is Brown which all but confirms her presence in the second season. The photo was taken down just a few hours after it was posted.

Also, in the middle is newcomer Sadie Sink who plays the character of Max, a tough tomboy who rides her skateboard everywhere she goes. Her complicated past has made her suspicious of those around her.

The cameras are set to start rolling on the second season this week.

It’s happening! For most people, this is nothing of importance so don’t get too excited but for someone who is counting down the seconds until The Duffer Brothers call action on set, this has me pretty pumped.

Thanks to Reddit user mondaymillionare, we have a look at the trailers set up ready to host the actors as they create what will hopefully be another magical experience for audiences. The photo was taken today in Jackson, Georgia which serves as the fictional settings of Hawkins, Indiana.

What we know:

The second season will pick up a year post the events of season one in the fall of 1984 and will feature the return of the entire original cast plus several new additions, two of which were recently announced. The story will deal directly with the portal that is still open to the upside down and how Will has been affected by his time spent there. Things are still up in the air with the return of Eleven but she’s definitely returning. You don’t create an iconic character like that and kill her off after one season. Plus if she was gone for good, I think the Duffers would be pretty up front about that. Their reluctance whether or not to tell us if Eleven is returning signals to me that we will see her again.

Oh, but Barb is dead. Seriously, she is not coming back, however. The show will deliver some form of ‘Justice For Barb’ to satisfy audiences frustrations with the lack of acknowledgment over the loss of Barb in the first season.

The second season begins production sometime in the next two weeks.

Stranger Things 2 will hit Netflix sometime in 2017.

‘Stranger Things 2’ Adds Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery

The Netflix smash hit Stranger Things rolls into production on the sequel in about three weeks. When the second season was announced it was revealed that the new season would see three new characters added to the mix — one for each generation of characters.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Sadie Sink and Dacre Mongtomery will be joining the cast as series regulars.

Montgomery, star of the upcoming Power Rangers reboot will play Max’s older step brother Billy — a typical 80’s jock who steals girlfriends out from their boyfriends and drives a black Camaro while he isn’t busy playing drinking games. Underneath he is said to be violent and unpredictable. Sounds like Steve’s former buddy Tommy has found his new best friend.

The new characters are said to be compelling but first and foremost in service of the core group of characters introduced in season one.

Noah Schnapp and Joe Keery have also been upgraded from their recurring roles to series regulars.

The second season will pick up with the original cast a year later and deal with the portal that is still open to the upside down.

The adventure continues in the fall of 1984.

Duffer Brothers Talk ‘Stranger Things 2’

The second season of the Netflix smash hit was always a part of the plan.

In just a few weeks Stranger Things 2 officially begins production. The hype around the show since its premiere in mid-July hasn’t died down and The Duffer Brothers are riding it all the way up right until the moment they call action for the sequel.

In an interview with THR, The Duffers confirmed that they had been greenlit for a second season before the show had even premiered and become the pop culture phenomenon it is today.

Matt:

They greenlit the second season before we even premiered. So when everyone was going, “Is there going to be a second season?” we had been writing the entire time. So we’ve been working on this almost all summer.

Ross:

It drove me crazy. “Please, can’t we just tell everyone we’re doing a second season?”

Matt:

Netflix has its mysterious ways, but it actually ended up working because it had built up to this fever pitch. I guess that’s what they were intending to do all the time.

“People are still finding season one so giving that time to breathe,” Yeah okay Ross, no one bought that for a second.

The Duffers revealed the nine episode titles in a teaser trailer last month for the sequel which has been part of the plan from the start. While the episode titles could still change, fans have taken to the internet (including myself) to speculate on just what exactly the titles could mean and what other 80’s films they could be pulling influence from.

Matt: Netflix had another teaser, but it was about going back to stuff that had happened already. I thought it wasn’t exciting enough, and we wanted to provide some hint of where we were going in season two without giving anything away. I do think some of the titles will change. There were titles we didn’t want to put on there because we felt like it would give too much away. The whole season was already broken when we did this.

Ross: So we did have a lot that we could tease.

Matt: Even if they aren’t the final chapter titles, everything in that teaser is major. But they’re ambiguous enough that no one is going to be able to figure it out. Some of the fan theories online are amazing. Most are wrong, but I’ve read a few that are right or very close. Is it Reddit? Some of those people have figured stuff out based off of the chapter titles.

Ross: Some of these theories are elaborate and smart. They’re not crap. I love reading this stuff.

It has already been said that the sequel will take its biggest inspirations from Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, Aliens, and Terminator 2. Based on what we know along with the new episode titles, it’s easy to guess that the sequel will take place on or around Halloween or that instead of just one Demogorgon — there will be Demogorgons. The episode titled “The Palace” stood out to me as it instantly made me think of Pankot Palace from Temple of Doom. I pictured The Goonies dropped into the the mine shaft chase sequence from the end of Temple. While I doubt anything like that will happen, the sequel will have a bigger budget along with the action genre injected into the mix of the supernatural mystery horror thriller so one can hope.

As the start date for season two closes in on The Duffers, they are now searching for the newest cast members who will join the iconic characters introduced in the first season. Finding the right kids to play Mike, Eleven, Dustin, Lucas and Will was a long process. Unfortunately time is not a luxury they can afford anymore but given how incredible of a job casting director Carmen Cuba did casting the first season, there is no doubt she will find the perfect talent to add to the series.

Season two will introduce us to a new character for each generation. The one who is raising the most eyebrows is a young girl named Max who will join the kids while riding her skateboard everywhere she goes.

Matt:

We did a wide, wide search for one new kid that we’re adding. She’s a cool new character.

NYCC 2016: ‘Stranger Things’ Panel

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.

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?

Harbour: 

We did get the first couple scripts and it’s insane.

Brown:

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.
