It's possible that no new show this year has instigated more fan theories about what the hell is going on than the hit Netflix spookfest Stranger Things. It's exactly the kind of show that people love to watch and try gathering up every detail to figure out all the ins and outs of the mysteries on the series. Now that the possible episode titles for Season 2 are floating around, thanks to the teaser for the next season, we know that some of those guesses are actually on point. Creators Matt and Ross Duffer are here to tell you that some of your theories are surprisingly on the right track.

Matt: Even if they aren't the final chapter titles, everything in that teaser is major. But they're ambiguous enough that no one is going to be able to figure it out. Some of the fan theories online are amazing. Most are wrong, but I've read a few that are right or very close. Is it Reddit? Some of those people have figured stuff out based off of the chapter titles.

Ross: Some of these theories are elaborate and smart. They're not crap. I love reading this stuff.

Matt and Ross Duffer, who, along with creating Stranger Things, also act as writers, showrunners and directors on the series, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the success of Season 1 and what they have planned for Season 2, and revealed that they've been made aware of some of the fan theories about what's going on in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, and they are pretty impressed with what some of those fans have to say about the show's potential directions.

After a blockbuster Season 1 that saw much of the pop culture conversation revolve around questions like "Holy crap, have you seen Stranger Things yet?" and "How did that damn Demogorgon get here? Is it Eleven's fault?", Stranger Things was finally officially renewed at the end of August. That renewal was accompanied by a teaser video for Season 2, which got the fandom in an uproar, as it revealed what will likely end up being most of the episode titles for the new season. People instantly started analyzing the titles, what had happened in Season 1 and what could happen in Season 2, and started to put together theories on what those titles would mean for the show in Season 2.

Well, I'm sure some of the fans who constructed theories about Stranger Things put a good amount of time into the process, and I bet it feels good knowing that they might be on the right track. Of course, we have no idea right now which of the Reddit theories are on completely on the money, heading in the right direction or complete wackadoodie, but it's a testament to the show that it can inspire such tries in the first place.

We can all start to compare theories to Stranger Things reality when Season 2 hits Netflix sometime in 2017.
