In a new interview with People, the cast of Stranger Things has hinted at what could be about to go down in season two of the hit Netflix drama — and all is not well in Hawkins.
With the Halloween premiere still a good six months off, the kids — Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) and Noah Schnapp (Will) — remained tight-lipped on wider plot details, but did concede that the new series will be a lot "darker."
“I think this season will be a lot darker. A lot more horror oriented," said Wolfhard. "I think people are going to like it more than the first season.”
Matarazzo then went on to explain how there would be a stronger individual focus on the characters, with an onus on the emotional impact of Will's disappearance.
"The great thing about this season is you get to see insights into each character on their own. You’re going to see a lot more into the lives of how the characters are coping with what’s been going on," said Matarazzo. "I think they’re all very emotionally scarred. They feel alone because their best friend [Will] is back and he’s not acting like their best friend anymore. He’s changed.”

Claims of a darker series are corroborated by these images of Will in trouble, which leaked last month.
