Things would’ve been a lot stranger not having that character around for season 2.
One of the most popular characters might’ve not made it out alive, according to CinemaBlend.
Show creators Ross and Matt Duffer at a Q&A event said that one of the Netflix series’ breakout stars, Millie Bobby Brown, was supposed to have a tragic death before they made the decision to keep the show going for future seasons, rather than to cap it off after just one season.
“Maybe I shouldn’t say this because I like to pretend that it was all planned out, but it was originally pitched as a limited series,” Ross Duffer explained, as CinemaBlend reports.
“So it was like, Eleven was gonna sacrifice herself and save the world and then that was gonna be it, because there was a moment where limited series were a big deal.”
Lucky enough, we all got Eleven back after her brush with the Demogorgon, winning the audience in her bitchin’ new attitude in the second season.
And it looks like she’ll continue to be part of the playing field, keeping her character in the mix.
