“Stranger Things” Season 2 Already Filming?

Horror TV

At the end of August, it was announced by Netflix that they were moving forward on a second season for their supernatural mystery thriller show “Stranger Things“, which was created by the Duffer brothers, Matt and Ross. The show has become a cultural phenomenon, winning over audiences that normally wouldn’t watching something like this and charming those who live and breathe the genres it lovingly embraces.

Now, it appears that filming is already underway for the second season, which is set to drop in 2017. Reddit user hollygorock snapped several photos of cars, trailers, and film equipment that are all parked outside of the building that is used as Hawkins Lab in the show. You can see them all below.

Here’s what the Duffers had to say about returning cast members, which could include Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and even Matthew Modine. But, is it possible we won’t see Eleven?!

Passing on the anthology craze, the Duffers opted to tell a continuing story in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. “I don’t think we ever thought anthology,” says Ross Duffer to EW. “I think we talked like a larger time jump where the kids are older now and it’s a different decade. That’s something we batted around from the very beginning. But for us, there’s still more story here, there’s still things that are unresolved.” So, expect to see the return of Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Joyce (Winona Ryder), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), etc. “We don’t know about Eleven,” says Ross Duffer. “We leave that up in the air.”

The kids will also be exploring the Upside Down even more.

“We kinda just peeled back the curtain and revealed a tiny bit of the Upside Down,” says Matt. “So we definitely want to explore a little bit more. There’s a lot we don’t know about the Upside Down at the end of season 1.” Adds Ross: “We obviously have this gate to another dimension, which is still very much open in the town of Hawkins. And a lot of questions there in terms of, if the Monster is dead, was it a singular monster? What else could be out there? We really don’t go in there much until they go in to find Will at the end. So we’ve opened up this doorway, and to us it’s exciting to talk about, like, what else is behind there? There’s a lot more mystery there to be solved.”

A love letter to the supernatural classics of the ’80s, “Stranger Things” is the story of a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.

    Hopefully we get a bit more originality in the second season. While I did enjoy the first season there was far to much stuff lifted from other movies from the 80s. The bike scene was ripped straight from ET for example….

    As I have said numerous times the scene where Eleven kills the monster was stolen directly from Supernatural when Sam kills Alastair in season 4. “On The Head Of A Pin” is the episode.

    I mean the entire scene is lifted from that episode.

    Just far to much material taken directly from other tv shows and movies for my taste. There is a line where imitation becomes down right thievery.

      I give you that on the whole Bike scene since it does took much of ET where they could’ve come up with a more creative way still using it as an homage as they intended.

      I saw that scene and it maybe look similar it’s really not the same, i mean i have seen others using telekinesis like in X-Men 3 when Jean Grey supposedly killed Professor X or the recent Mob Psycho 100.

      Anyway some already mention this but folks don’t want originality in their shows, they want to see shows that reminds them of their youths when they where living in the 80’s, they love watching the reference they add in the show and it’s one of the reasons why it became so popular.

      I suggest reading the comic “Paper Girls” It’s really good where it gives a ton of good 80’s reference where main characters will remind you of the 80’s kids from The Goonies and Monster Squad but have their own identity and the story really keeps you in suspense on what’s going to happen next

        i am in love with this show but it wasn’t really (in large part) due to the 80’s references/flourishes. it was because of how engaging i found the characters and the storyline as well as the gorgeous cinematography, etc. yes the 80’s gig in it was extremely well done and fun but for me it wasn’t THE thing that made me love this show. just sayin’. 🙂

        • Grimphantom

          I agree with ya but just wanted to point out what attracted the show more. It’s like with Paper Girls where the story and characters are handle so well yet you can’t help to also enjoy the 80’s reference they add.

          • J Jett

            Grim, i agree w/ you 100%. 🙂

    The problem with Stranger Things is that some people simply enjoyed it and others have gone flat out insane crazy over it. It was enjoyable but it was neither groundbreaking or original. A big part of it’s appeal was there was real lull in tv and movies this summer, so when this came along people freaked.The people who have gone insane over it have kind of ruined it for everyone. They’ve built a hype and expectation for season 2 that will be hard to match. It could be good, but I honestly think it will fall far short of the high bar set by the crazies.

    • Grimphantom

      Dude, don’t much about it. If you enjoy it, that’s what matters, don’t let others because they went over crazy for it ruins it for you.

  • Grimphantom

    That’s a big duh. They have to film i mean the most obvious reason is that they need to take advantage on the whole Fall to give it a more realistic look also we have to remember that the kids grow up and we already saw they are not as little anymore.

  • J Jett

    i figured they were either filming already or just about to start filming. with the kids growing up/getting taller/hitting puberty they needed to start ASAP. regarding Eleven, i’d bet good money that Millie/Eleven will definitely be back. they are probably just keeping it a secret so as to have the moment she returns be emotionally impactful.

    Photos don’t show much signifigance

  • LOX TO THE DEATH

    First season was good the kids were likeable, best performance from Winona Ryder in years the ending could of been better but i guess its just set-up for whatever is up next
