Eleven set to return in series two of Stranger Things

Standard

strangerthings-1280jpg-19acd4_1280wStranger Things was the word-of-mouth hit of the year, Netflix’s 80s mash-up of crime and horror gaining enormous viewing figures (indeed, it was the show that tipped me over the edge and prompted me to finally subscribe). The ending was a flurry of monsters and kinetic energy, and one of the main characters – Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) – seemed to sacrifice her own life to vanquish the monster. However, it seems that Eleven will be back for series two…

TV Line reports:

Brown’s involvement beyond the show’s phenomenally successful first season was called into question over the summer when exec producers Matt and Ross Duffer said Eleven’s return remained “up in the air.” Shortly thereafter, eyebrows were raised when American Odyssey‘s Sadie Sink was cast in the role of “Max,” a “tough and confident” young female whose “appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era.”

Arriving sometime in 2017, Season 2 picks up about a year later, in the fall of 1984, and will delve into “bigger mythology” behind young Will Byers’ disappearance, Matt Duffer previously teased. Meanwhile, as previously reported, Joe Keery (Steve) and Noah Schnapp (Will) have been promoted to series regulars.

2017 is going be quite a year…
