Will only made an appearance in the first season of Stranger things, but season two is going to be all about the boy who faced the Upside Down.
The Duffer Brothers recently went into more details about what to expect plot-wise and they explained,
“We’re basically just finding out more and more about [Will], trying to find out what’s wrong with him. He’s having very weird psychological and physical effects from everything. He’s trying to deal with it; Joyce (Winona Ryder) is trying to deal with it as well.”
Actor Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, added that his friends are “trying to make sure they don’t talk about it a lot, trying that whole ‘pretend it didn’t happen’ thing.”
Mike is also drastically affected, over course. Ross Duffer said,
“I think Mike is probably the most outwardly affected when we first pick up because of his relationship with Eleven and what happened there. I think it’s interesting to see because he was clearly the de facto leader early on and we see him take a step back.”
The events of the Under Ground bring the boys closer together, and eventually bring them back to Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).
They will also have to face off a new villain, Billy.
“He’s not a good guy. That’s what we liked about him. He looks like he should be the lead in Power Rangers but I like taking that and making him a terrible person. It was fun. He’s the human villain.”
Season 2 drops October 2017.
