Stranger Things Season 3 is in development, which looks to be released later in 2018 or more than likely in early 2019.
Executive producer Shawn Levy reveals the new season will have a new evil and also that Will gets a much needed break.
“We’re not going to put Will through hell for a third season in a row,” Levy 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.”
The article makes mention that with Will not getting the attention of the baddies, maybe Dustin or Hopper will be next in line.
“You might assume that,” Levy teased. “But you would probably end up being wrong. We’re [going to be] dealing with forces of evil that are new.”
Levy also tackles why it takes so long for new seasons of Stranger Things to be released as fans are a bit impatient.
“If we could make it [return] faster, then we would,” Levy said. “But we’re going to make it well. We’re going to do it right. We’re there. It’ll be an eight- or nine-episode season. The number of episodes will be dictated by the amount of story that excites us. We now know what is going to happen in season three to every character.”
Also look for more from Dustin and Steve.
“I want them to have a connection like they’ve really had a connection for a year—like they’re brothers.” Gaten Matarazzo said. “He’s never had that, so I feel like Steve is definitely someone in that sense who could be that person to him.”
Season 1 and 2 of Stranger Things are currently on Netflix.
