The Second Season of Stranger Things Promises to be Much Darker – “More Horror Oriented”

When the first season of Strangers Things hit Netflix, the show rapidly became a hit with TV watchers everywhere inspiring a line of collectibles and cosplayer creativity all over the world. When the first reveal trailer announcing season 2 hit, it quickly became one of the most sought after series coming in 2017. With the cast returning to resume their well-known roles, Stranger Things promises to bring on the horror and focus the narrative more on the cast itself.

Sitting down with People magazine, Finn Wilfhard (who plays Mike) promises fans that the new season will be much darker, which was a statement also promised by the show’s creators last year. Wilhard stated,

I think this season will be a lot more dark. A lot more horror oriented. I think people are going to like it more than the first season.”

The interview can be seen in the video above and it is incredibly interesting to see these young actors express their experience with filming eloquently and passionately, getting an insight to just how much these roles have impacted their lives.

Prior to Wilfhard’s comments, the actor who portrayed Dustin, Gaten Matarazzo, let fans of the show in on the fact that the focus of the new season’s shifts a bit to a more personalised focus:

The great thing about this season is you get to see insights into each character on their own. You’re going to see a lot more into the lives of how the characters are coping with what’s going on. They’re all very emotionally scarred.”

Stranger Things promises another impactful season when the series returns on Netflix in October. Were you a fan of the first season? Excited to see Eleven and the rest of the cast back on the screen?
