The Duffer Brothers on Wednesday talked about the evolution of Stranger Things in season 4 and how it went from a TV version of The Goonies in previous years to the small-screen horror show inspired by A Nightmare on Elm Street and Hellraiser.
“The kids are now not kids anymore. They are in high school,” explained Ross Duffer during Netflix’s Geeked Week. “Suddenly that opened up a lot of doors for us. We can put them in danger that is really scary.”
But sometimes the scariest thing in Hawkins isn’t the supernatural monsters; it’s the jocks and cheerleaders who terrorize kids like poor Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown). “A lot of horror comes from humans in the story, the darkness in all of us,” added Ross Duffer. “This season really is no different.”

Sadly, no one shared any scoop about Volume 2 that drops July 1. Instead, the younger cast members waxed on about playing high schoolers and the rites of passage that go with it.
“It’s definitely a goal for Dustin to feel a little more confident,” said Gaten Matarazzo. “He’s put more emphasis on his look. I think it’s just a general confidence search, maybe motivated by his friendship with Steve [Joe Keery].”
“I understand where Lucas is and his life at the time,” added Cale McLaughlin. “He’s kind of going through this time, who am I, where do fit in. He needed to venture out to figure out who he was before he can appreciate his love for his friends, the nerd that he is.”
