WARNING: SEASON 1 SPOILERS AHEAD!
Hey, mouth-breathers, “Stranger Things” is coming back in October, and the show’s composers are promising even more of the Upside Down.
The first trailer for Season 2 emerged on Super Bowl Sunday, teasing a Halloween 2017 release. It also featured real or imaginary spider-like monsters crawling out of the Upside Down, haunting Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), who appears to be suffering from a sort of parallel universe PTSD.
Now, the show’s composers, Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, are teasing even more of the eerie, desolate and web-filled wasteland that Chief Hopper (David Harbour) and Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) journey through toward the end of Season 1. Will and Nancy (Natalia Dyer) also make their way into the alternate plain, but even so, there are a ton of questions remaining about the strange home of the Demogorgon.
Ars Technica spoke with Stein and Dixon on the making of the music for the show, and Stein offered up some interesting tidbits about the music for — and reoccurrence of — the Upside Down.
“The Upside Down is weird and experimental, and we approached it with something like the ‘Alien’ soundtrack, but this music focused on the monster,” he said.
Judging by the relatively ambiguous ending of Season 1 — where Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) tackles the Demogorgon back into the Upside Down (?) and then has Eggos delivered to her by Hopper in the woods — it’s clear the Duffer Brothers, the show’s creators and co-directors, are not through with the strange, barren land.
On this uncharted territory, Dixon said that in Season 2, “There are new characters, fun, and the Upside Down will be more of a place — you’ll spend more time [there]. So we’ll make a lot more weird music this time around.”
According to ScreenRant.com, Season 2 will also feature behind-the-camera work from the man who directed “Finding Dory.”
It’s also been reported that Martin Brenner (played by Matthew Modine) will return — perhaps to fill in the blanks about Eleven’s “upbringing.”
Paul Reiser will be appearing in the second season as well, in a currently unknown role.
Sean Astin, Linnea Berthelsen and Brett Gelman are also new cast members for the next chapter.
ScreenRant.com also points out that the Duffer Brothers have also planned beyond Season 2, which provides a measure of comfort for all the show’s diehard fans.
