Government conspiracies, kids with supernatural telikinetic powers and a monster that can glide effortlessly between worlds, Stranger Things has everything a show needs to get people talking. It’s all mystery and magic, intrigue and action. The first season built a world that viewers fell in love with and would happily explore for many, many seasons more. Even if none had ever been commissioned, it seems only fair to assume that the fan fiction alone could’ve catered to people’s cravings for more. Luckily, Netflix has promised at least one more season and fans cannnot contain their excitement.Theories about what we can expect from the future episodes have flooded the internet. The cast have already received the first few scripts and have started dropping hints about what they’re like. The titles of some of the episodes have been leaked and that scant information alone is enough to generate some seriously cool ideas.
Perhaps one of the coolest things about them though is that some of them might well come true.
In a recent interview with THR, creators of the show Matt and Ross Duffer discussed what they think about some of the theories fans are coming up with.
They talk about the effort they put into ensuring that the teaser trailers were enticing without giving too much away. Matt Duffer says:
“Netflix had another teaser, but it was about going back to stuff that had happened already. I thought it wasn’t exciting enough, and we wanted to provide some hint of where we were going in season two without giving anything away. I do think some of the titles will change. There were titles we didn’t want to put on there because we felt like it would give too much away.”
Even so, it seems that there are at least a couple of people out there who have managed to piece the clues together pretty well, as Matt continues:
“Some of the fan theories online are amazing. Most are wrong, but I’ve read a few that are right or very close.”
Regardless of accuracy, though, fan theories are a lot of fun – and the Duffers aren’t immune to the joys of them either.
“Some of these theories are elaborate and smart. They’re not crap. I love reading this stuff,” Ross Duffer says.
But they try to steer clear of any that aren’t sent to them directly as they can draw you in and over into the other side. Ross admits, “I know I would never get out if I went in there.”
