“Stranger Things”: Season 2 Horror and Trepidations- ‘Make That Demogorgon Look Quaint’

Stranger Things season 2 returns this fall, and will be a lot more darker. During an interview with YouTube’s GoldDerby, executive producer Shawn Levy emphasized that this time around, the story will be far more precarious:

“Will Byers is very much at the center of several intersecting challenges, threats in season two and I think overall the forces of evil that are inherent in season two make that Demogorgon look quaint in retrospect.”

Stranger Things season 2 will feature a more various characters, he said:

“I think you’ll see more and more certainly in the movies that we are producing at 21 Laps and even in season two of Stranger Things — an increased diversity, not because anyone is telling us it needs to happen but because that is the world we live in, that is the mindset we try and kind of relate to others and the world around us with, so more and more I think you’re going to see that reflected in the content.”

He also explained as the first season was helmed  by him and Stranger Things creators, The Duffer Brothers, the open the ground for new directors, including Andrew Stanton:

“That’s been the difference this year. Last year we were very, very protective. In our first meeting with Netflix they were like ‘so what kinds of directors are you going to get for the show?’ and I was like ‘it’s going to be the brothers or me. That’s it. No one from the outside.’ I think it’s why season one has a real consistency to the tone, and to the look, and to the vision. This year, we’ve had two other directors come in and do episodes: Andrew Stanton and Rebecca Thomas and those episodes are turning out great.”
