Netflix’s popular series from 2016, “Stranger Things,” returns Oct. 27 with its second season. The series was well known for leaving fans with several cliffhangers and questions unanswered.
Many fans of the show are hoping to have those questions answered in season two. But if season one proved anything, the series will probably answer those questions while spawning many more.
We asked U of M students what they expected to happen in season two and what they think happened to the fan-favorite character “Barb.”

“I have this whole theory that Eleven is actually the monster. So I think that’s what we’re going to find out. What happened to Barb? Maybe the government people still have her.”
“Maybe the kids will deal with puberty, and it will be a feel-good comedy. Barb? I bet that they find her dead body somewhere. Like actually dead.”
“I honestly think they’re going to try and find Eleven, because they left that open. I love Eleven. Barb? I think hopefully she’s alive. Maybe she learned to fight the monsters.”
“I think Eleven is going to evolve. It’s a really interesting show. What happened to Barb? The thing ate her.”
“Aside from the obvious of Eleven returning? More explanation as to what was puked up at the end of the first season, in the sink. That leech thing that came out of his mouth ... Barb is dead. I don’t know why there are so many people who think Barb is alive. Even the people who made the show confirmed that she was dead.”
“Oh God, I watched the trailer a bunch. I just really want Eleven to come back. I want to know where she’s been. And I hope that Will is okay. That was kind of scary, seeing him in the hospital bed … Barb is dead. I’m pretty sure you heard it eat her. Maybe she’ll come back in a flashback or something.”
“I don’t remember enough of it to make a good prediction … Barb? I say that she comes back somehow. And that’s like a big arc somehow in the story.”
“The kids are going to run away from home. They’re going to evade the FBI and live in the woods. I don’t remember who Barb is so I can’t answer that question.”
