Stranger Things season 2 will have a lot more horror

It seems like you might not want to watch Stranger Things season two alone when it hits Netflix this Halloween.

From being a surprise hit last year, the show's second season has become one of the most anticipated TV events of the year, and Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike, has been busy reassuring us that it will be worth the wait.

"I think this season will be a lot [darker]. A lot more horror-oriented. I think people are going to like it more than the first season," he told Emmy Magazine.

When you consider that the first season delivered the terrifying Demogorgon and the Upside Down, we wonder just what extra horrors await Mike, Eleven and co in season two. All Wolfhard would say is that they're more "disturbing".

Gulp.

It seems the fact we'll get to know the characters better means we'll care even more when they face horrifying situations.

"You're going to see a lot more into the lives of how the characters are coping with what's been going on… they're all very emotionally scarred. They feel alone because their best friend is back and he's not acting like their best friend anymore. He's changed," teased Gaten Matarazzo, AKA Dustin.

It's not the first time that a Stranger Things star has spoken about a darker season two, either.

Last month, David Harbour revealed that Chief Hopper starts in a "completely different place" in season two: "I am so excited for you all to see this season. It's so fun and dark and complex."

Cannot. Wait.

Stranger Things returns to Netflix on October 31.
