Pools, chocolate milk, Stranger Things.
The folks at HuffPost caught up with Gaten Matarazzo – who plays Dustin Henderson – poolside at a special Holiday Inn “Summer of Smiles” event (which includes chocolate milk) and spoke to the actor about Stranger Things season 2.
Promising an action-packed season featuring more information about the Upside Down, Matarazzo said fans can also look forward to “a good amount of explanation that they’ve been looking for, but also there are some new stories coming in that you’re gonna want to hear about if there is a Season 3. Also, we got another cliffhanger in there for ya, so that’s gonna be exciting.”
We already know that the Demogorgon will look quaint compared to the threats season 2 has in store, but Matarazzo’s teases suggest we’ll get some answers to go along with our new mysteries, terrors, and cliffhangers. We can only hope that one of those explanations will be concerning what happened to Eleven, who disappeared at the send of season 1. And although Matarazzo couldn’t give anything away in that regard, he did say something we’re all feeling: “Who doesn’t want to be like Eleven? Eleven’s awesome.”
But don’t worry too much about Eleven. Millie Bobby Brown (who plays the girl with psychokinetic abilities) has been shown in the season 2 teaser as well as promotional materials. It’s likely then that one of the explanations we will get will concern what happened to Eleven. Hopefully it involves waffles.
The second season of Stranger Things will arrive on October 31, 2017. Its cast includes Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, David Harbour as Jim Hopper, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler, Matthew Modine as Martin Brenner, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, and Joe Keery as Steve Harrington. It will also introduce Sadie Sink as Max and Dacre Montgomery as Billy.
