There's just about a month to go before "Stranger Things" Season 2 premieres on Netflix and fans are eagerly awaiting the return of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) from the Upside Down. The series promised to bring back, even more, horrors from the supernatural dimension that seems to lurk over Hawkins, where the AV Club is forever haunted by memories of the Demogorgon. Will Byers, in particular, is still dealing with surviving the Upside Down and is still having visions of the horrific creatures that reside there. Now, the sophomore season is set to pick up a year after the first season finale's events and fans are expecting that the show will open in Hawkins, where viewers were shown a glimpse of the characters post-Demogorgon.

However, the show won't open back in Indiana and instead will find itself in a more "urban" setting, as per creators Matt and Ross Duffer.

Sophomore season to pick up in a new town

In a recent chat with Entertainment Weekly, Matt Duffer shared that they wanted to surprise viewers with "Stranger Things" season 2 by opening the new season "in a place not in Hawkins, in an urban environment." Duffer admitted that he and his brother wanted to catch viewers off guard and that ultimately, their goal was "broadening and expanding" the world of sci-fi series.

Multiple stories to come together to form a whole

David Harbour, who plays Chief Jim Hopper on the show, previously hinted that the Duffer Brothers had a fresh take on "Stranger Things" season 2. He even likened it to strawberry and vanilla ice cream, saying that fans may not like the new flavor that the sophomore season has.

Unlike the first season that tackled stories solely in Hawkins, Indiana, the upcoming season will feature multiple "threads" that would be woven together to form a whole story. Ross Duffer explained via EW, "We have all these different threads and you don’t see how possibly all these things could come together and then slowly but surely they all play an integral role in the story this season."

Someone new coming to town

It would be interesting to see where these new "threads" will take the story as a whole. In fact, one possible "thread" would be the one that newcomer Sadie Sink will bring to the table. She will play Max, a Hawkins town newbie who arrives and becomes a new squad member of the AV Club. While most of the boys are smitten with her, Mike will noticeably be unaffected, as he's still looking out for the return of Eleven. "Stranger Things" season 2 premieres on Netflix on October 27.
