Stranger Things 3 Stars Filming Next Month

Netflix begins production next month on Stranger Things 3.

In their report on the actors' paygrade, THR reports that Stranger Things 3 will begin production on April 23.

Details known for the third season include that it will feature a new evil and won't focus on Will as much.

"We’re not going to put Will through hell for a third season in a row," Executive producer Shawn Levy previously told Galmour. "He’ll be dealing with stuff, but he won’t be at rock bottom the way we forced the amazing Noah Schnapp to play... We're [going to be] dealing with forces of evil that are new.”

It's also known that Stranger Things 3 will feature eight episodes, which is the same as the first season, but down one episode from Season 2.
