While we don't have word on a second season of Stranger Things yet, theories are popping up everywhere about the Upside Down, Eleven and what's really going on with Will.
The Duffer brothers—the writers and creators of the hit show—sat down with IGN to discuss the fates of two huge characters on the show: Barb (Shannon Purser) and Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine).
According to Matt and Ross Duffer, it sounds like Barb's exit is final, but they'll make sure there's "some justice" for her. The duo said in a statement:
“Barb will not be forgotten. We’ll make sure there’s some justice for Barb. People get very frustrated, understandably, that the town doesn’t seem to be really dealing with Barb. That stuff is all happening. We’re just not spending any screen time on it. It’s not like her parents are like ‘Oh Barb left. She died!’ Season One actually takes place over the course of six or seven days – it’s a really short period of time. So part of what we want to do with hypothetical Season 2 is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened.”
Although it looked like the monster ended Dr. Brenner's life, there seems to be a chance that he'll be back.
The brothers said, "I would say that if we were going to kill Brenner… as an audience member watching the show, if that was his death, that would be very unsatisfying to me – when the monster jumps on him and we cut away. He would deserve much more than that as an ending. So yes, there’s a possibility of seeing him again."
