Last August, not only did Netflix announce the second season of Stranger Things but it teased the new episodes in a short video that included chapter titles.
Things creators The Duffer Brothers had been writing all summer, plotting out what another batch of episodes would be. “At that point, we knew everything major that was going to happen moving into season 2,” says Ross Duffer.
It was their decision to release the chapter titles for fans and, it turns, out a few Things watchers are right on the money with theories for season 2.
“Some of them are changing,” admits Matt Duffer of the episode titles. “Some of them we didn’t put because these people are smart on the f—ing internet. You’ve seen it with Westworld — they figured it out! I’ve seen videos analyzing the chapter titles and they’re right on a lot.”
