Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, co-director Matt Duffer revealed that he wants the show's young cast to grow in front of viewers' eyes.


"The dream is a Harry Potter situation," Duffer said. "I love watching kids growing up on camera. So the idea seeing where these kids and these characters are one year later is cool to me. And it allows us to explore the mythology of our nether."
