Stranger Things' third season to give Will Byers a much needed break

  1. The third season of Netflix’s hit original series Stranger Things is off to a solid start. In a recent interview with Glamour, executive producer Shawn Levy revealed that he and the show’s creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, have already planned out all of the story lines for season three.

    Levy was reluctant to share too much information about the upcoming season but did say it’ll be an eight- or nine-episode season, a number that’ll be dictated by “the amount of story that excites us.” In other words, they aren’t planning to stretch the story out simply for the sake of producing additional episodes.

    The executive producer further notes that Will Byers will be getting a much needed break. "We’re not going to put Will through hell for a third season in a row. He’ll be dealing with stuff, but he won’t be at rock bottom the way we forced the amazing Noah Schnapp to play.”

    Instead, the show’s lovable characters will be “dealing with forces of evil that are new.”

    Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin on the show, said he wants his character to have a connection with Steve (played by Joe Keery) “like they’ve really had a connection for a year – like they are brothers.”

    Season two of Stranger Things hit Netflix on October 27, 2017. Fans hoping for another Halloween-ish release could be disappointed, however, as the show isn’t expected to return until late 2018 or early 2019. Here’s to hoping it’s sooner rather than later.

    "Fans hoping for another Halloween-ish release could be disappointed, however, as the show isn’t expected to return until late 2018 or early 2019."

    Since when is Halloween not defined as "Late" in a year? Still... I suppose season 3 will make a nice Christmas present...

    I wonder how all grown up they'll turn up to be on season 3. It'll be Harry Potter all over again.

    Season 2 took place a year later, so it at least worked with that. They might do the same thing with season 3 so that the "kids" age appropriately with their actual selves. I don't care! I just want more ST! Steve and Dustin - bro-mance! Need it!
