[Spoiler alert: The following interview covers plot details from the entire eight-episode first season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” Do not read until you’ve finished the season.] The world got very strange indeed over the first eight episodes of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” The ’80s-set and inspired series from creators-writers-directors The Duffer Brothers (twins Matt and Ross) solved its central mystery of exactly what happened to Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) — who was reunited with his mother, Joyce (Winona Ryder), and brother, Jonathan (Charlie Heaton), after spending a week in a parallel dimension known as the “Upside Down” — but raised plenty of other questions.What happened to telekinetic badass Eleven (scene stealer Millie Bobby Brown) after she destroyed the Upside Down monster?A lot of the drive of the show is not just looking for Will, it’s learning about her and her backstory, and how she connects to all of this.We built an entire backstory for her, and the trick was where to drop those puzzle pieces in.Omegle (oh·meg·ull) is a great way to meet new friends.When you use Omegle, we pick someone else at random and let you talk one-on-one.We have that whole other world that we haven’t fully explored in this season, and that was very purposeful.

As you head into future seasons, have you thought about how much of that 30-page document you want to reveal and explore? If people respond to this show and we get to continue this story — we had those initial discussions of where we might go with it.

If there was going to be a season two, we would reveal more of that 30 page document, but we’d still want to keep it from the point of view of our original characters.

By the end of episode six, you know a lot about her.

It was the same approach we had with the monster, that sort of “Jaws” approach — hint at it but don’t show much, so you have somewhere to go.

You start simply — with floating a Millennium Falcon, very small things, and hopefully it builds and builds.
