Season two of the supernatural drama will feature returning cast members Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin alongside newcomers Sadie Sink, Dacre Montgomery, Paul Reiser, Sean Astin, and Linnea Berthelsen.
In the interview, Levy said some time will pass between the events of season one and two:
I’m not gonna say how much time has gone by. It is not the next day, I’ll say that. And there are several new characters who I think several of them are going to be new fan-favorites because they’re great, great new characters. But we are definitely sticking primarily with our core group, and what is different, how are they changed from the experience of last season… maybe ‘normal’ is never possible again.
Will Byers was in that Upside Down for a while. So Season 2 is about this determined desire to return to normalcy in Hawkins, in the Byers family, in that group of friends, and it’s the struggle to reclaim normalcy and maybe the impossibility of it.”
Levy also revealed that he and the Duffer Brothers are already planning for season three:
We are not gonna be caught off guard and we don’t wanna be making stuff up like the day before we have to write it and make it, so we are definitely optimistic and we have started thinking ahead.”
Season two of Stranger Things is expected to debut next summer.
