Netflix announced season two of Stranger Things back in the summer, but since then, there has been precious little information about what might happen when Eleven and the gang return in 2017. 

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, show creators Matt and Ross Duffer weren't exactly forthcoming about the new episodes, but they did share a couple of new tidbits. First of all, Eleven and the boys will no longer be the only cool preteens in town. "We did a wide, wide search for one new kid that we're adding," Matt said. "She's a cool new character."

That's very exciting, but what's more interesting is that the brothers admit to having read a few fan theories, and hint that a few of them have come close to ferreting out the truth. "Most are wrong, but I've read a few that are right or very close," said Matt. 

"Some of those people have figured stuff out based off of the chapter titles." Ross added that some of what he's seen is "elaborate and smart," and also "not crap," but noted that they only read what people send them and don't go searching on Reddit themselves because they're busy guys with a show to make. 

But that shouldn't stop you from trying to figure out what's going to happen. (Take an Eggo for the road.)
