The Stranger Things Kids Can’t Even Tell Their Families Anything About Season 2!

no title

The second season of Stranger Things won’t be premiering until Halloween, which means the cast still has a good six months of being pestered for spoilers about the Netflix cult hit.

But for now, the mysterious second season may as well be in the Upside Down, as the breakout stars of the series can’t share a shred of information about Season 2 — not even with their families!

Series stars Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, and Gaten Matarazzo opened up about their top-secret work on the upcoming season of the sci-fi/horror series for the May cover issue of emmy magazine.

The kids explained they are sworn to secrecy about the next chapter of the Netflix hit, which is currently filming in Atlanta on a closed set — where only hair and makeup and a few key crew-members are permitted.

14-year-old Matazarro said production was much stricter this go-around, so much that he wasn’t allowed to send his brother any scripts like he did last year, before Stranger Things became an instant cultural phenomenon. He explained:

“My brother always asks me, ├óΓé¼╦£Gate, can you send me the script?’ I’m like, ├óΓé¼╦£It’s a new season, and it’s a lot stricter than last year ’cause he read them last year, but this year he’s not able to ’cause we don’t want any, like, hacking interference.”

The Duffer Brothers had to go to full Game of Throneslevel secrecy after just one season! Not bad!

Fans will be happy to know that the five kid costars have grown very close over the past year, with Brown — a self proclaimed “girl’s girl in pink and pearls and rings and necklaces” — even fitting in with the boys by taking up whiffle ball.

The 13-year-old Brit said that she and Schnapp have grown particularly close, adding:

“Noah comes around almost every weekend for sleepovers. We watch really scary movies on Netflix like The Babadook and Hush.”

Watching movies was actually what prepared the young actors to take on their roles at the start, with creators Ross and Matt Duffer assigning them homework of classics like E.T., The Goonies, Jaws, and Poltergeist.

Schnapp added that his father also helped shed a light on life in the ‘80s, sharing:

“They were always outside. It’s all phones and computers now├óΓé¼┬ª You know, I kind of miss the ’80s. Even though I wasn’t alive.”

We all do, Noah — that’s one of the reasons why Stranger Things is such a hit!

Look out for the kids’ full interview when their issue of emmy magazine hits newsstands May 17, and catch the return of Stranger Things October 31 on Netflix!
