The cast of Stranger Things season two have teased what's to come in the new episodes that'll debut on Netflix later this year.

The Duffer Brothers' series returns for a second run on Halloween (31 October), the title of each new episode of which was announced late last year.

Mike Wheeler actor Finn Wolfhard told Emmy Magazine: “There are going to be some challenges the characters face that are real, that are disturbing.

“This season will be a lot more dark, a lot more horror-oriented. I think people are going to like it better than the first season.”

The cast also teased the status of Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), the character who went missing in the show's first season only to be returned from the Upside-Down a bit different to before.

Dustin actor Gaten Matarazzo said: “I think they're all very emotionally scarred. They feel a little bad because their best friend is back and he's not acting like their best friend anymore. He's changed.”

Wolfhard and Matarazzo will reprise their roles alongside fellow child actor Caleb McLaughlin as well as Winona Ryder, David Harbour and Charlie Heaton.
