“Stranger Things” star David Harbour has finally allowed Season 2 details to slip, including who “Goonies” alum Sean Astin will be playing.
We previously knew that Astin would play a former classmate of both Hopper and Joyce (Ryder), but this is the first time we know the nature of his relationship with latter.
He also said that the new season will feature a time jump. “It’s a year later in the story, so there are several things that happened last year, like Will has come back,” he said.”There are certain people in the town that know what happened, and then certain people that don’t know what happened. So there’s a lot of fall out with who knows what.”
But the biggest question: Will there be justice for Barb, Nancy’s friend who was killed in the Upside Down early in the season and then basically forgotten?
“The question and the feelings that Nancy has that no one ever cares about her friend Barb are very much present in the beginning of the season,” Harbour said.
Most of the main cast will be returning for Season 2, with Harbour and Ryder being joined by Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) and Millie Bobby Brown, who plays the specially gifted Eleven.
