Stranger Things is one of those few shows that just gets better and better with every season. The fans went gaga over the first two seasons, and so did the critics. And now with production on the third one underway, the wait is killing us.
We have many spoilers, some from the casts themselves.
Millie Bobby Brown who plays our favorite eleven has teased in an interview to a blossoming romance between Hopper and Joyce Byers. Finn Wolfhard who plays Mike Wheeler says the show will be set in the summer of 1985, the new “summer of love.” Chief Hopper portrayed by David Harbour in an interview went so far as to say that the third season is inspired by a 1985 comedy by the name Fletch. Does this mean the third season will have funny undertones in a shift from its darker ones? We hope not!
It will be interesting to see where the third season will lead us. The second season saw, eleven going out of town and befriending kali aka eight with identical powers. That story arc is expected to have a big impact in the upcoming season. And then there is a whole upside-down world to look out for!
The complete story of Sheriff Hopper may come to light. Many fan theories are doing the rounds on the internet, one of whom explains that his daughter died in the Hawkins lab.
Cindy Holland of Netflix revealed in a press tour the reason for the upcoming season’s delay. She said “Well, it’s a handcrafted show, you know, the Duffer brothers and [director] Shawn Levy have worked really hard & they understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger & better than what they did last year. And so, they really want to take the time to get it right. I think it’s going to be a fantastic season; it’s going to be worth the wait.” We hope so Cindy!
It was revealed by Executive Producer Shawn Levy that the third season would have eight or nine episodes. The first season set the bar very high and then the second season came and raised the bar further. It remains to be seen if the third season can continue the tradition.
The third season premieres in the summer of 2019. According to the rumors floating on the internet, the third season will be coming out in December 2018. Just a side note, nothing regarding the release date is confirmed, but we will keep you posted.
