'Stranger Things' Season 2 Will be Darker and 'Very, Very Disturbing'

"Stranger Things" Season 2 spoilers reveal that the show will face "darker threats", as they begin to explore the characters and the Upside Down.

"We don't have the element of surprise on our side this time, but we execute it better", says Ross. News about the new season, the duo revealed that this new villain will be even worse than we imagined.

Netflix's Stranger Things, a sci-fi drama set in a small town in the 1980s was one of the first hits for the streaming giant. One aspect of the series that did not get a lot of screen time was the show's monster, the Demogorgon.

"Last season, a lot of the horror and a lot of what was happening with Will was off screen in the Upside down", co-showrunner Ross Duffer said. But for all of the Stranger Things coverage now littering the Internet, there are precious few details out there regarding the actual story arc of season 2.

Fans will get more answers when the new season premieres on Netflix on October 31.

The cast had a few things to say about season 2 too. And, "now the pressure is we know people are going to watch it". The more horror-focused new season is said to be more unsafe, so expect better monsters.

Noah Schnapp hinted that his character Will - who was trapped in the frightening dimension for most of season 1- didn't escape completely unscathed.

Aside from nearly everyone in season 1 returning, there's also hype about the monsters in the series.

Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, added that the group knows Will "is not well... but they are just trying to pretend [nothing] happened".

"The first four episodes are exactly like season one". Mike and Eleven were close throughout the season but she sacrificed herself to save them all in a fight against the Demogorgon. However, he said that when it comes to season two that will not be the case at all. A lot more horror oriented. "We didn't want to lose that sense of wonder".
