New Stranger Things Photos Reveal Changes to Come

first_imgStay on target What to Stream on Netflix This WeekendZach Galifianakis Hits the Road in ‘Between Two Ferns: The Movie’ Trailer We’re only a month away from “Stranger Things 2,” and details about the new season are starting to come out. Entertainment Weekly revealed some new photos from season two that show off some of the changes coming to the series. Among them, Eleven has a new hairstyle, the cast includes a grown-up Goonie, and a bad boy teen with a car. Every ’80s movie needs one of those. First, let’s look at Eleven, back from the Upside Down with a brown, curly mop on her head.Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven (TINA ROWDEN/NETFLIX, via Entertainment Weekly)Next, Mike, Dustin and Lucas have apparently seen Ghostbusters, and had pretty much the same reaction we all did.Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson nd Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair (Photo: JACKSON LEE DAVIS/NETFLIX, Via Entertainment Weekly)Sean Astin, who had his own ’80s adventure as a kid, also joins the cast this season. He’ll play a nerdy character named Bob Newby, and if the photo is anything to go by, he’s taking an interest in Joyce Byers.Sean Astin as Bob Newby and Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers(JACKSON LEE DAVIS/NETFLIX, via Entertainment Weekly)Another new cast member is Dacre Montgomery, who drives a Camaro, has a mullet and wears a denim tuxedo. You know, a cool guy. From the sound of things, he’ll play an antagonistic role this season. Maybe he’s the new bully in town.Dacre Montgomery as Billy (TINA ROWDEN/NETFLIX, Via Entertainment Weekly)More photos are available at EW. That’s not the only Stranger Things news to come out of this week’s issue, though. The site also revealed a few new details about that giant shadow monster we saw in the trailer for the new season. Creators Matt and Ross Duffer elaborated on how the new monster will be different from season one’s Demogorgon.“Our big reference for [the demogorgon] season 1 was mostly Jaws. It’s a shark, and the other dimension is the underwater. So there has to be something more sentient, and that’s that thing in the sky,” Matt said. The brothers still wouldn’t elaborate on the new monster’s true nature. From the sounds of things, we’ll be a ways into season two before we find out. We will see plenty of it, though. Most of the season will be spent with this ominous shadow overhead.Ross told the magazine, “I think the difference is you don’t really see how it’s all tied together until later. But it’s all connected to this singular threat which is tied into this shape that Will sees in the sky. Will is the way through which we’ll be able to understand what’s going on.”Sounds like Will will have a much larger role in the second season then. That’s good. The rest of the kids took center stage in last season’s adventure, and Will missed most of it. It’ll be cool to see him share the spotlight more this season. The Duffer Brothers don’t reveal too much about the nature of the shadow monster, but they did say they took inspiration from H.P. Lovecraft, suggesting “and inter-dimensional being beyond human comprehension.” So you’re telling us it’s Cthulhu?Shadow Monster (via Netflix)Entertainment Weekly also asked them about an earlier report that they had four seasons planned. When the Duffers told Vulture that they were “thinking it will be a four-season thing and the out,” it didn’t go so well at Netflix headquarters. Producer Shawn Levy said they were suddenly getting calls from actors’ agents, and had to calm their fears. The show isn’t for sure going to end after season four. The Duffers say that the narrative of Stanger Things wasn’t built to sustain a long-running show, and they don’t want to wear out their welcome. That said, they don’t have a for sure end point just yet. Levy says they can all see the possibility of a fifth season, but the show probably won’t go much further beyond that.“It’s not wrapped up this season,” Ross Duffer told EW. “I think [season two] will be a satisfying end but there’s still danger out there. There’s too much to deal with in one more season. If we’re able to, there’ll be at least four, there could be more. I think there’s going to be a point where we stretch credibility, like why aren’t these people leaving Hawkins?”Whatever future seasons bring, they’re still a long way off. For now, we have more 80s childhood adventures and a giant shadow monster to look forward to in season two, premiering on Netflix October 27.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
