When Netflix announced a second season for its hit 80s-inspired horror-drama “Stranger Things,” it did so with a teaser video that included a list of episode titles. Unfortunately for some Internet detectives who immediately set to squeezing out every ounce of information from said titles, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer have admitted they are not final and that changes can and will happen.
In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, the brothers said they were nonetheless impressed with some of the fan theories put forward.
“Even if they aren’t the final chapter titles, everything in that teaser is major,” said Matt Duffer. “But they’re ambiguous enough that no one is going to be able to figure it out. Some of the fan theories online are amazing. Most are wrong, but I’ve read a few that are right or very close. Is it Reddit? Some of those people have figured stuff out based off of the chapter titles.”
The titles in the teaser video were chosen to provide hints at what might be in store for a second season while maintaining a spoiler-free level of ambiguity. Some of the titles were foreboding, like “The Pumpkin Patch” and “The Boy Who Came Back to Life,” while others were downright, well, strange, such as “Mad Max.”
The second season of “Stranger Things” is currently slated for release digitally on Netflix in 2017.
