Somewhere in the Upside Down, Eleven is indeed out there munching on Eggo waffles. Actress Millie Bobby Brown just confirmed that she will indeed return as the quiet heroine for Stranger Things Season 2.
The 12-year-old breakout star announced the news by reposting Netflix’s upside-down cast photo from a table read, which indicates that the show is back in production. “See you next year,” the Facebook post says, alongside a photo of the actors—sans Winona Ryder—at work.
“011 is back! It’s official, can’t wait to be back working with this lovely cast again for #strangerthings,” Brown wrote. “Thank you to the amazing duffer brothers for having el back for a second season!”
