What to Expect in Stranger Things in Season 3
THIS POST MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS!
Probably Stranger Things has been one of the greatest successful shows to ever hit Netflix. In fact, the hype for season 3 began as soon as season 2 dropped in October 2017. Although this time we have to wait much longer before Stranger Things season 3 officially premieres, we don’t mind it. Especially now that we have so many reasons to be excited about the upcoming season. There’s a lot that we already know, and there’s much more that we still need to discover. But definitely, it’s all going to be worth the wait!
All The ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Details…
Here’s all that you need to know before the season 3 hits Netflix. Maybe, it makes the wait for Stranger Things more exciting and easier.
When Does It Premiere?
Well, unfortunately, we do not have a release date for Stranger Things season 3. However, David Harbour announced that we should not expect it before 2019. Netflix’s vice president of original programming Cindy Holland also confirmed that the season would not be here before summer 2019. However, she added that all this delay will be worth it in the end. Her statement said that,
[Creators] The Duffer Brothers and [producer] Shawn Levy, they understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger and better than last year. I think it’s going to be a fantastic season. It will be worth the wait.
Have They Released A Trailer?
We do have something that looks somewhat like a trailer, but definitely is not. Netflix released a small trailer which was more of an advertisement for a new mall in Hawkins, but it works well as a Stranger Things season 3 trailer as well. It features Steve Harrington played by Joe Keery and newcomer Robin played by Maya Thurman-Hawke as ice cream vendors. You can watch the trailer here.
What About The Cast?
Thankfully, all the main cast members are on board for all the upcoming episodes in season 3. And that implies that Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven, Finn Wolfhard’s Mike, Winona Ryder’s Joyce, Noah Schnapp’s Will, Caleb Mclaughlin’s Lucas, Gaten Matarazzo’s Dustin, Natalia Dyer’s Nancy, Charlie Heaton’s Jonathan and the very popular Joe Keery as Steve are all going to take up the screens.
Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery who joined Stranger Things in season 2 as Max and Billy will be back too. But Sean Astin’s Bob might not return, and that’s going to shatter a lot many fans. Maya Thurman-Hawke will be entering Stranger Things as a new character- Robin. And she’ll uncover a dark secret in Hawkins but what it really is remains unknown till the next summer.
What Will The Plot Be?
Stranger Things season 3 will pick up right where season 2 left it. Now that we know there is a new mall in Hawkins, it’s safe to say that it will be the hangout spot for the children. Steve Harrington is all set to take up a job in an ice cream parlor with Robin. And speculation has it that some romance will be sparked between the two. As for the rest of them, there is still a lot of dealing to do with the forces of evil. From what Ross Duffer shared, we know that,
They’ve shut the door on the Mind Flayer, but not only is it still there in the Upside Down, it’s very much aware of the kids, and particularly Eleven. It had not encountered her and her powers until that final episode. Now, it knows that she’s out there. We wanted to end on a little bit of an ominous note.
But in season 2, Will has suffered more than enough. Getting covered in alien goop and screaming in fields is enough work for him. And maybe now Noah gets to play a normal teenage boy for season 3. Other than that, we are still hoping for Dad Steve and Dustin to continue their bromance.
That’s pretty much everything we know about Stranger Things season 3 and let’s desperately wait for 2019!
