Stranger Things Season 2 is going to be more foul-mouthed than ever, and mostly thanks to the kids on set. Read what the Duffer Brothers said when Netflix tried to step in and censor things below, and continue reading:
It's hilarious that out of everyone who might be outraged at Netflix attempting to censor Season 2 of Stranger Things for profanity, the kids were the most vocal. Of course, those who watched Mike actor Finn Wolfhard in IT recently may not be as surprised that some of the children are as fond of potty language to the point that they are foul-mouthed when they're off camera. Hopefully, it's all in fun and they're not cussing out random crew members on set for messing up!
Luckily, as we learned in their Wired interview, the Duffer Brothers and the kids of Stranger Things got their way, and while there were no specifics doled out as to what swear words are going to be used, one has to think it won't be anything too extreme. For example, it seems as though whatever Netflix reviewed was far tamer than they initially thought and we're probably not going to hear Eleven start calling people a "mother fucker" or anything like that. Ultimately, any parents concerned about the amount of swearing by children in the series should perhaps travel back to the children's films of the '80s for a brief reminder of how foul-mouthed those kids could be:
Unfortunately, the Stranger Things characters can't blame their swearing on The Goonies yet since the film didn't release until 1985, but there's a good chance they one day could if the timeline continues to jump forward a year for the next season! Wouldn't we all love to see Dustin do the "Truffle Shuffle"? Hell, I'd even settle for someone referring to an Upside Down monster as Sloth.
