DONTNOD’s episodic Life is Strange is only one episode in at this point, but the studio already has ideas for a second season.

“You will get clues as to why Max can rewind time and how she got this power, but we won’t go full sci-fi. We’re more interested in what people do when they have this power rather than how they got it and who gave it to them.
