David Harbour, who plays Police Chief Jim Hopper in Stranger Things, recently talked about the first five minutes of Season 2 and how fans of the series will likely react to the new concepts it will introduce. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Harbour said that the first few minutes of Stranger Things Season 2 will depart from the original:

"The first five minutes, you're not going to know you're watchingStranger Things.You're going to be checking the thing: 'Did I put on something else?' Then something happens in the last part of those five minutes where you realize we've opened up the world in a fresh new way, and we introduce some new concepts."

What could those new concepts be? It sounds like the scope of the story will widen in the next season. Hopefully, we'll see the main cast explore a larger world beyond Hawkins, Indiana (and its alternate dimension). When asked to describe what the new concepts are, Harbour was careful not to let details slip away but did tease how the new season will change:

"It's things the fans have mentioned and have been talking about. I don't want to bring up what those are specifically, but we delve into questions that you guys had about the past histories of these people. It really opens up the world, and then the whole world is able to get bigger and darker and weirder. I think people are going to be really blown away."

I'd rather see a fresh concepts and new settings than see the kids doing the same kinds of things and being in the same places again, and I'm glad to hear that the upcoming season will take us to a different direction.

Stranger Things season 2 will premiere on Netflix on October 27.
