How old is One supposed to be in Hawkins’ lab?

The Duffer Brothers did the math, as of writing Season 4.”It’s been about two and a half years… I think he was said to be about 29 at this time in the timeline. We’re not good at math, but we have authors who are good enough at math to do these calculations…” they answer in Variety. “Afterwards, Jamie Campbell Bower (who plays One and Vecna) is in his thirties (33 years old, editor’s note), so he was around 30 when he met Eleven!

How old is Eleven supposed to be right now?

The flashbacks go back to 1979 and “she was 9 years old. When we first meet her on the show, she’s 11. So in season 4, we see flashbacks two years before the flashbacks in season 1. We actually used images from season 1 but also visual effects from Millie (Bobby Brown) when she played in the series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, at the age of 9 years.

Why is time stopped in the Upside Down?

Time froze in the Upside Down world the day Will was abducted by the Demogorgon. Why didn’t he resume? “That’s a very good question“, comment the Duffers in Variety. “This is actually one of the few questions we’ve raised this season that will NOT be answered in Volume 2. But it sets the stage for some big reveals in our final season, Season 5. In the middle of season 1, Netflix asked us to explain to them what Upside Down is and where these monsters come from and all that. So we wrote a document. We spent a week with our writers writing all the mythology and that’s really where we really defined what the Upside Down was and where these monsters came from and what all of that meant. And so this season we’re giving the audience a lot of information, but there are still mysteries about the Upside Down. And that of the weather there is a huge one! But we really wanted to hint at it this season because it’s going to play a big role going forward…”

Why Eleven was much more talkative at 9 years old?

We remember in season 1, the young Eleven is a mute character. Who barely speaks when she crosses paths with Mike & co. Very uncomfortable with people. However, two years earlier, she seemed much more socially integrated. “In fact, she goes into a coma, wakes up, and has no memory of these events. Then she is brought up in total isolation by Dr. Brenner, who dares not bring any more numbers into the program. Lest it happen again. So he chooses to focus only on her. She lives alone, in an isolated room”, explain the Duffers. “This is the Eleven we meet in Season 1. Two years of isolation and really limited memories of what happened to her. And so that’s one of the reasons behind the fact that she hardly spoke anymore.”

Will Will’s sexuality really be explored?

We found him changed. Older. And obviously in love with his friend Mike… So will Will come out as gay in Volume 2? “At the end of episode 7, we are at the end of our second act. So there are a lot more resolutions coming and we’re trying to do the same with the character arcs. And I would say that applies to Will’s arc. So it will be a lot easier to talk about it for everyone – the cast and us – once those last two episodes air. But certainly, his journey and his arc are far from over.”soberly comment the Duffers.

Why does no major character ever die?

Although season 4 is significantly darker and more brutal than the previous ones, no original cast member has yet been killed off, in Stranger Things. So should we fear a drama in Volume 2? “I don’t want to divulge anything, but there will be something to be concerned about the characters, at the time of volume 2, of course. I hope the fans will be afraid for them, because that is the meaning of a longer season. dark place where kids aren’t kids anymore. Everyone’s in danger. There’s this ominous vibe in the air. Things, this time, might not go well. Now, is there Will there be a death or not? To be continued…”

This volume 2 of season 4 of Stranger Things will be released on July 1 on Netflix.
