LOS ANGELES, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer have detailed their plans for characters Barbara and Dr. Martin Brenner for Season 2 of the hit Netflix thriller.
Speaking with IGN, the Duffer brothers said despite fan support for Barbara, the character portrayed by Shannon Purser would not be coming back following her death in Season 1, but that she would be given "justice."
"Barb will not be forgotten. We'll make sure there's some justice for Barb. People get very frustrated, understandably, that the town doesn't seem to be really dealing with Barb. That stuff is all happening. We're just not spending any screen time on it," they said before detailing how the second season will explore the aftermath of her death.
"It's not like her parents are like 'Oh Barb left. She died!' Season 1 actually takes place over the course of six or seven days – it's a really short period of time. So part of what we want to do with hypothetical Season 2 is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened," they continued.
However, Dr. Martin Brenner, portrayed by Matthew Modine, despite appearing to have been killed by the show's mysterious monster, could possibly still be alive.
"I would say that if we were going to kill Brenner... as an audience member watching the show, if that was his death, that would be very unsatisfying to me – when the monster jumps on him and we cut away. He would deserve much more than that as an ending. So yes, there's a possibility of seeing him again," the Duffers revealed.
While a second season has yet to be formally announced by Netflix, the interview comes after the duo confirmed with IGN that a second season would be happening and that it could also pick up a year after the events of Season 1.
