From time to time, actors from TV shows tease future installments of their respective series. Nevertheless, Stranger Things star Winona Ryder does not seem to have this kind of freedom.
Speaking to E! Online at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, the actress jokes about secrecy surrounding Stranger Things season 2. The source quotes her as saying, “We’re sort of like sworn, you know, we would have to probably be killed if we revealed anything.”
Ryder plays Joyce Byers, mother of missing kid Will. Despite proof that her son is gone for good, she doesn’t give up on looking for him. With the help of police chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) and Will’s friends, she is eventually reunited with her missing boy.
By the time the first season finale is down to its last minute, it appears Joyce and her two sons are back to their old life. That’s before Will coughs up a slug and gets a momentary glimpse of the Upside Down.
A darker Stranger Things season 2 awaits
What then, did that last scene mean? Noah Schnapp himself was willing to share a few details on that finale. The young actor, who is now a series regular, spoke to Vanity Fair at the annual BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party last Saturday.
The source quotes him as saying, “You’ll be seeing more of me. I’ll be there. In the last episode, I threw up a slug, so Season 2 begins with what happens from there. There may have been some effect on him. I may or may not have turned into a monster. You’ll have to watch to find out.”
It’s interesting to note that some fan theories point to Will being some sort of host for the Demogorgon. Though the story points to only one monster out there, could Will’s long stay in the Upside Down mean he was infected by the monster somehow?
With the Stranger Things cast sworn to secrecy, there’s no way to know for sure. All fans can do at this point is wait.
Stranger Things season 2 drops on Netflix later this year.
