While Stranger Things 2 just hit Netflix today, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer have confirmed they are now beginning to work on the third season of the smash hit series.
In a spoiler-filled discussion with Deadline, Ross explained the challenges of writing the series’ multiple storylines out like a movie as he revealed that writing on the third season is just beginning now:
“The hardest thing with this story is that we were tracking these multiple storylines and having them sort of build about at the same pace as to crescendo at the same time. It’s always the hardest part as we move into writing.
Like we’re starting on Season 3 now, it’s always the most difficult thing just to get those to build simultaneously. It’s always a challenge, and so we’re still learning. I mean, we’re trying to do this eight-hour, nine-hour movie so to get that pacing just right, you know, it’s always hard.”
A Season 3 has been on the creator’s minds since the development of the second season and The Duffer Brothers have already confirmed they are planning to run the series for four to five seasons. As far as when fans can expect the third season to arrive on the streaming service, The brothers have previously said they expect to turn another season around on the same fifteen-month timetable as season two, meaning we may not see a Stranger Things 3 until 2019.
Stranger Things 2 stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, and Noah Schnapp. The series has also added Sean Astin (The Goonies), Paul Reiser (Aliens), Brett Gelman (Jobs), Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers), Danish actress Linnea Berthelsen, and Broadway star Sadie Sink into the mix as well. Here’s the official synopsis:
It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.
Stranger Things 2 is now streaming on Netflix.
