Stranger Things: Millie Bobby Brown to Return as Eleven in Season 2

Fear not, Stranger Things is hanging onto its lucky number.

Although a Netflix rep declined to comment, sources confirm to TVLine that the series’ breakout star, Millie Bobby Brown, will indeed be back as Eleven in Season 2.

Brown’s involvement beyond the show’s phenomenally successful first season was called into question over the summer when exec producers Matt and Ross Duffer said Eleven’s return remained “up in the air.” Shortly thereafter, eyebrows were raised when American Odyssey‘s Sadie Sink was cast in the role of “Max,” a “tough and confident” young female whose “appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era.”

It’s not clear how many of Season 2’s nine episodes Brown will appear in, but all signs point to her once again being a series regular.

Arriving sometime in 2017, Season 2 picks up about a year later, in the fall of 1984, and will delve into “bigger mythology” behind young Will Byers’ disappearance, Matt Duffer previously teased. Meanwhile, as previously reported, Joe Keery (Steve) and Noah Schnapp (Will) have been promoted to to series regulars.

    Not really surprising. I saw many Elevens for Halloween yesterday; she’s iconic now.
    SAVE BARB.

      Aww leave poor Barb alone, she didn’t deserve to die like that. I hope they find a way to bring her back. And Eleven coming back is the best tv news I’ve probably heard all year. Wish more shows would take a leaf outta Stranger Things’ book. Also, I’m nominating 21 pilots to do a couple of songs for the next soundtrack. Heathens practically belonged on this show.

    Although it was predictable… I am happy that it turned out this way!

  10. Good, but not surprising! It would have been really stupid of them not to do everything they could to get her back!
