Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy has revealed that the show’s third season will be both the darkest and most action-packed season yet.
Levy was sharing the excitement revolving around the show’s Emmy nominations, which were announced yesterday morning when he was asked about the show’s third season which was allegedly described as more lighthearted. He was quick to reveal that while there are more lighthearted moments this time around, the third season also juxtaposes that humor by also being the “darkest” and most “action-packed” season yet:
“There’s more comedy in season 3, but make no mistake: season 3 is probably the darkest and most action-packed season yet. That balance of the light and the darkness; that’s always been kind of at the heart of what we do in Stranger Things so we’re very much kind of devoted to that.”
