One of the big takeaways from the first season of Stranger Things is that the young performers on that show are going to be stars. Millie Bobby Brown and her four male co-stars, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), and Noah Schnapp had the breakout roles and they’ve been promoting the series everywhere. With the second season almost fully completed, the cast members have brought back together for a new photo shoot for Emmy Magazine.
Via People Magazine, Emmy Magazine has released a video preview of the photo shoot and the interviews with the cast. Of particular note, Wolfhard states that the new season will have a heavier emphasis on horror, and the boys indicated that there will be trouble with Will. Specifically, Will’s been changed by his time in the Upside Down and he isn’t acting like their friend any more.
The video also includes the young cast members gushing over their celebrity encounters, including Leonardo DiCaprio and even President Barack Obama. And it is actually quite funny to see how excited Brown still becomes when she shares the memories.
The second season will take place in October 1984, roughly one year after the events of the first season. Most of the story details are still under wraps, but it is known that a new threat will be visited upon the boys and their town, while Eleven will return from her self-imposed exile in the Upside Down.
Stranger Things season 2 will be released on October 31st on Netflix.
