While accepting her recognition, the 13-year-old couldn’t help but break down in tears while addressing her co-stars, fans, family and supporters. “First of all, I want to thank everyone that voted and especially MTV… I want to think the cast and crew for being my second family. I love you. I want to thank my family… you give me light every day. My mom and dad for being so supportive,” she said, before mentioning Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, the two people behind “Stranger Things.” “Thank you guys so much. I love you.”

According to US Weekly, Brown was the youngest actress nominated in the best actor in a show category. She was up against the likes of Gina Rodriguez of “Jane the Virgin,” Mandy Moore of “This Is Us,” Emilia Clarke of “Game of Thrones,” Jeffrey Dean Morgan of “The Walking Dead” and Donald Glover of “Atlanta.” Brown was also nominated in the best hero category, and she was up against Stephen Amell of “Arrow,” Taraji P. Henson of “Hidden Figures,” Felicity Jones of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” Grant Gustin of “The Flash” and Mike Colter of “Luke Cage,” according to Deadline.

Meanwhile, the upcoming second season of “Stranger Things” will stream on Netflix starting Oct. 31. The upcoming episodes will kick off a year after Will’s (Noah Schnapp) return. Everything seems to be going well until the children head out for Halloween. Will starts remembering the things he saw in the Upside Down and questions whether or not they are all real.

“Stranger Things” co-creator Matt talked about the plot for Season 2 in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “[Will] seems to be seeing images from the Upside Down – the question is whether they’re real or not. So it seems like he’s having some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder,” he shared.

Will’s mom, Joyce (Winona Ryder), on the other hand, will be trying her best to make things stable and normal for her two children. She will be dating an old high school classmate named Bob (Sean Astin) and attempt to avoid Will’s questions regarding what happened to him last year. “She’s trying to mask a lot. I think she’s made this choice with Bob because she wants a good father figure in her sons’ lives,” Matt added.

Elsewhere, Hopper (David Harbour) will try his best to also keep things secret since he wants to protect Joyce and her kids. However, Hopper will struggle with this because he also happens to be the voice of authority. “He’s struggling with the compromise that takes him to, having to lie and cover things up,” he said.

Meanwhile, “Stranger Things” has also cast Will Chase in a recurring role for Season 2. According to TV Line, the “Nashville” alum will play the role of Neil Mayfield, the patriarch of a family of recent transplants in Hawkins Indiana from California. The publication speculated that Neil could be the dad of the two new kids in town.
