Brown debuted as everyone’s favorite Eggo-loving telekinetic nose-bleeder in season 1 of the Duffer Brothers’ hit series. Spoiler warning for anyone who hasn’t finished watching, but she vanished after a finale tussle with the demogorgon. Now we know she’s not gone for good. Mike will surely be pleased.
Brown’s return was confirmed via a photo of a table read for season 2 featuring the original main cast members, sans Winona Ryder.
Season 2 also features Dacre Montgomery (the Power Rangers reboot) as Billy, “Max’s hyper-confident and edgy older step-brother,” while Sadie Sink plays Max, “a tough and confident girl” with “a complicated history.” Joe Keery (Steve Harrington) and Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) have also been upped to series regulars.
Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer teased a “darker” second season and “a bigger mythology behind what happened.”
Matt explained, “We hint at where we might go at the end of the season. Will was living in this Upside Down, this other dimension, for about a week, so the repercussions of that can’t be good. [The] inter-dimensional rift is still very much open, so that also can’t be good.”
Stranger Things season 1 is currently streaming on Netflix.
