Shawn Levy Says 'Stranger Things' Season 2 Will Both Disappoint And Satisfy

Barb was one of the most beloved and breakout stars of Stranger Things Season 1, and we were wondering just what her future would be on the show.

Levy warns season 2 might disappoint some fans, especially since Barb is not coming back from the dead.

Stranger Things will return to Netflix in October. I don't know that there's a bounce back from that!'


Online, Twitter armies infamously launched the hashtag #JusticeForBarb, lobbying the show's creators, the Duffer Brothers, to give a second season reprieve to the character - be it by resurrection, flashbacks, a magical time-swipe, anything. Taking place in the fictional town of Hawkins in the USA, the show - set in the 80s - followed the usually ordinary story of a boy gone missing. "You think you want that, but you wouldn't really want that", he laughed.

Stranger Things season 2 is not coming this summer, like we originally thought after the release of the first season.

"No, we are not going to cravenly service the wish-list of fans, we're going to service the Duffer instincts and what they feel is the right story to tell", he said.


During a Facebook Live event with The Hollywood Reporter, David Harbour, who plays the role of Chief Hopper in Stranger Things, discussed how Hopper will be back for the next season. According to Harbour, his character's realizations will take him to an entirely different path, but the actor guarantees fans they will be "very satisfied".

The 43-year-old United States actor said that Hopper would be going on a "different arc" in the second run and that his character could be put at risk. "Much like The Force Awakens, I think there's this delicious torture in not knowing".

You will soon be able to enact your very own "Stranger Things" storylines with the August release of a set of action figures from toy maker Funko. You can see the entire interview with Levy below.
