The 2nd Season of Stranger Things will be based on Indiana Jones
According to the Duffer Brothers; creators of Stranger Things, the second season of the series will be influenced by the 1984 cinema of Indiana Jones and will be set at one year after the proceedings of season one.
Despite the second season of the series not yet being confirmed, Reed Hastings the CEO of Netflix said that the streaming service would re-commission it.
In an interview with IGN Ross and Matt Duffer said that season two would draw a lot of influence from the 1984 cinema. Matt was quoted saying “1984 was a f**king amazing year, especially the movies that came out in the summer of 1984.”
He continued to say that they were trying to capture hopefully some of the magic contained in those films giving the example of the film “Temple of Doom.” He adds that the thin he loves about this particular movie is that it gets little weirder and darker from Raiders.
He further explains that he also loved the film due to the way it messed up kids ‘traumatizing them.’ However, he adds that their aim is not to traumatize children but to make the series a little bit darker and weirder.
A far as the finish goes, the brothers said they want to get to the ending in a believable way. Matt said it’s a matter of figuring out how many episodes as well as potential seasons they would need to tell the story. He added that that was the goal as well as the hope, mentioning that it was a difficult task, but they were hopeful they would get there.
