While the second season of Stranger Things hasn’t even happened yet, the shows director duo, the Duffer brothers, confirmed that Stranger Things 3 is happening. Rumors have circulated for months that the show would be getting renewed for a third season thanks to hype and excitement for the upcoming installment and its trailers.
The brothers confirmed earlier this week that the kids from the Hawkins A.V. club would be returning for a third season, and that they would hope to end the show at the fourth. In an interview with Vulture, Matt and Ross Duffer talked about the story’s continued evolution, and the kids continued struggles.
“We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” says Ross. “I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year.”
Trailers for the second season have revealed that despite a lot of issues being wrapped up from the first season, the boys are far from out of the weird woods.
The end of the first season showed that Will is still infected by the Demogorgon, despite escaping his clutches. This season he doesn’t look much better, as trailers have shown him to be hallucinating about a Cthulhu like monster in the sky. One of the more interesting theories floating around forums and message boards currently even revolves around Will being the Villain of this season.
Eleven’s fate will be answered as well, as the latest trailer showed her attempting to escape the upside down.It should be interesting to see what role our favorite force like wielding character will play in this one, especially how long it will take before she is reunited with the boys.
