Eleven will return from the Upside Down just in time to witness all the problems plaguing Will Byers and the town of Hawkins, Indiana, in Stranger Things Season 2. Despite the trailers and expectations for Season 2 of the Duffer Brothers’ hit Netflix series, Stranger Things fans have sprouted a plethora of fan theories since Season 1 premiered over a year ago. And according to Eleven actor Millie Bobby Brown, a fan favorite cast member, you nerds have it all figured out.
“It’s crazy how deep they get into things, but I love every single fan and every single fanatic out there that has supported the show since day one,” Brown told Deadline in an interview published Friday. “It’s very interesting to hear their theories, and sometimes I’m like, ‘OK.’ Sometimes, they’re right, and I send it to the directors. I’m like, ‘Wow, you should sort this out.’”
When prompted to clarify on whether or not fans had already figured out Season 2, Brown said, “All the answers are out there. You just have to piece them together.”
The problem is that there are so many fan theories. Stranger Things fans have had over a year to marinate in their own desperation on Tumblr, Reddit, and other fan sites with rabid tendencies; so, while some of the theories are reasonable, others are getting a little wild. As Brown said, though, you just have to sift through the insanity to get to the real plot of Season 2.
Best of luck figuring it out.
Stranger Things Season 2 premieres on Netflix on October 27.
