The end of Stranger Things' first season didn't really leave us with answers so much as questions. And theories. And a lot of hand-wringing as to when the next season will arrive.

At the New York Comic Con 2016, managed to get a few new details surrounding the events that fans can see once the show gets back for its second season's run.


First things first, while Eleven's return is the biggest theory and hope of fans, Eleven actress Millie Bobby Brown and Chief Hopper's David K. Harbour both confirmed one thing: Barb is not coming back from that icky death by Demagorgon feeding.

Granted, this is a sci-fi series, but it's good to hear that it won't be bringing back a character who has so obviously died. For one, it will cheapen the moment wherein Will Byers was saved, while she wasn't.

But that doesn't mean Stranger Things won't get any stranger than how it was the first season. Harbour revealed that there will be a love triangle in the series—and you guessed it, it will involve Nancy, Steve, and Jonathan.

That much was pretty clear, considering that Steve didn't end up being just the popular bully in the end. And even though some may be rooting for the popular girl, emo guy hookup for Nancy and Jonathan, they each have their own priorities and characteristics, that Harbour is right to describe then as "so three dimensional."

Let's just hope that the love triangle isn't meant for fan service, but something that will let us get to know more about the characters.

The love triangle characters aren't the only ones who will be getting more story explorations. Hopper has had his fair share of mysterious backgrounds, especially in connection with his daughter. And Harbour promised that his character will explore this in Stranger Things season 2.

"I feel like with the loss of a daughter like that, I just feel like he's truly broken in a way that almost cannot be healed. In a certain way, he has so much guilt because he's so used to saving people—used to good guys and bad guys—and finally he puts himself in a situation where it's just life."

Perhaps the biggest mystery is what had happened to Eleven after that epic exploding scene. While Brown did not give any hints, all she said about the next season is that it will be "incredible."

Stranger Things season 2 is still currently filming.
