Fellow Stranger Things fans, the Heavens have answered our prayers! Netflix announced today that we will get a third season of thrills & chills in Hawkins, Indiana as we watch our favorite kids try to avoid getting Will stuck in the Upside Down! There has not been a release date confirmed yet, but it most likely will be released at the end on 2018, maybe even the start of 2019. Based on the end of season 2, the Mind Flayer is going to continue to mess with these kids, so they may just have to get the hell out of this town! According to the Duffer brothers (who created this amazing show), ”They’ve shut the door on the Mind Flayer, but not only is it still there in the Upside Down, it’s very much aware of the kids, and particularly Eleven. It had not encountered her and her powers until that final episode. Now, it knows that she’s out there. We wanted to end on a little bit of an ominous note.” Job done, then. Could Jim Hopper’s daughter, Sara, have died in the lab? Is Eleven’s controlling “Papa” returning? Eight, meanwhile, also looks like she’s set herself up as the baddie – as she uses her power for not-so-wholesome endeavors. Will we meet the other numbers? So many questions! What we do know is that these kids are growing- FAST! The Duffer Brothers also suggested that the new episodes will have to deal with the kids’ growing up and puberty. “Even if we didn’t want to deal with [puberty], we have to deal with it because our real-life actors are going through it. I think that’s exciting because it forces the show to evolve and become something different every year.” “It’s going to test their friendships. Obviously, like Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink) are together, but really, when you’re that age, how long do relationships last? They usually last about two weeks if you’re lucky. I think that’s going to be fun to explore.” This most likely will not be the last season, but season 4 just may be! Will the entire cast be back for season 3? That con not be confirmed considering these kids are all over & will eventually want to branch out of the Stranger Things world. Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, has already been eyeing some major Hollywood roles. She’s confirmed to star in Godzilla: King of Monsters. Charlie Heaton (Jonathan) is starring alongside Game of Thrones star, Maisie Williams in The New Mutants. Obviously the demand for these rising stars is getting higher, especially after the success of season 2. The Duffer brothers said that filming will begin soon in Atlanta- & that makes us very excited!
