During an interview on Facebook with The Hollywood Reporter, Levy teased a "darker" and "more ambitious" return for the Duffer Brothers' supernatural phenomenon.

Levy warns season 2 might disappoint some fans, especially since Barb is not coming back from the dead.

Levy said that Barb's role, or lack thereof, in the second season will just be one of the disappointments fans will have to deal with. "I'll give one example that I've been asked about a hundred times which is people still think Barb's alive".

So if one thing's for sure going into season 2, it's that we're not going to see a miraculous recovery from Barb following her succumbing to the Upside Down. "I don't know that there's a bounce back from that, '" he said.

Stranger Things' second season is fast approaching and executive producer Shawn Levy is clearing up a few questions still bothering viewers. "Because you think you want that but you wouldn't really want that", Levy explained.

David Harbour, who plays Hawkins police chief Jim Hopper, suggested that change was afoot for his character in the new run. "But you can't try to recreate vanilla". Despite that, creator Matt Duffer did previously state we'd see "justice" of some kind for the fan favourite character, so we've got that at least to look forward to. All I'm going to tell you about season 2 ... I think people are going to be pissed off by things.

"So people who found season one too scary for them, probably you're going to be more scared by season two", he added.

Now confirmed for a second season, tidbits of information has been slowly drip-fed to the public, whether it be from cast or crew members involved in making the show.

As EW first reported in our exclusive cover story, Stranger Things season 2 picks up almost a year after the season 1 conclusion. Now sort of the beginning of the episode, we start examining the perils of what it is to be a hero or perhaps the fantasies that you have about yourself and the dangers of that.
