Ready to take another trip to Hawkins?
Netflix announced that its enormously successful original series Stranger Things has been picked up for a third season (via Variety).
This news is definitely exciting, but it shouldn’t come as a surprise to most, as series creators the Duffer Brothers already mentioned that they were thinking up what storylines to pursue come season three. Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy once noted that the second season almost wrapped up with “epilogue scenes… that would have hinted more at season three, but there was a decision made by all of us where we said, ‘Let’s not back in to any promises again.'”
Season three of Stranger Things will see the return of many familiar faces, though a few from the second season sadly won’t appear. The current roster includes Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, David Harbour as Chief Jim Hopper, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, Joe Keery as Steve Harrington,Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler, Dacre Montgomery as Billy, Sadie Sink as Max, Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler, and Paul Reiser as Dr. Sam Owens. Seasons past saw Matthew Modine as Dr. Martin Brenner (who will likely pop up again in flashback sequences) and Sean Astin as Bob Newby.
A release date for the third season of Stranger Things has yet to be announced, but you can count on us to fill you in when it is.
