Charlie Heaton Looks Fresh As A Daisy On The Cover Of GQ (And Ups The Ante For Season 2)
Nostalgia seems to be the aim of the game for GQ's most recent cover feat. Charlie Heaton a.k.a. Jonathan Byers, who's covered in an old school flower print — and we're loving it! But do you know what we're loving more? His conversation surrounding Season 2 of Stranger Things, of course! Namely that every expectation you have for the second season is going to be exceeded:
“I didn’t know what to expect about where the show was going. But it trumped whatever I was thinking. A lot of things are going to be addressed…”
He also tells GQ about why he feels a special connection to his character, Jonathan:
“I wasn’t a total outsider at school like Jonathan, but I wasn’t necessarily the popular kid either. I felt I understood why Jonathan was the way he was - a bit of an older soul… I had a very humble upbringing like him and was also brought up by my mother. I also liked the idea of how he’s trying to discover himself and work out who he is and where he belongs.”

According to composers Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein a.k.a S U R V I V E a.k.a composers of your favorite Netflix show, Stranger Things, have revealed that Season 2 will be spending much more time in the Upside Down:
"There are new characters, fun, and the Upside Down will be more of a place…you'll spend more time... So we'll make a lot more weird music this time around."
