The third season of the show will be set in the summer of 1985. Millie Bobby Brown has hinted at a blossoming romance between Jim Hopper and Joyce Byers in season 3. David Harbour says the new season is influenced by the 1985 comedy Fletch.
We have a lot of questions about Stranger Things 3 after that season 2 finale. So let’s check out:
When is Stranger Things 3 released?
Netflix have confirmed that Stranger Things 3 will debut in summer 2019. “It’s a handcrafted show,” Cindy Holland, VP of Netflix’s original content, explained. “The Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy have worked really hard, and they understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger and better than what they did last year. And so they really want to take the time to get it right.”
Holland added that “more special effects” is one of the main reasons for season three’s prolonged production – but it’ll be “worth the wait”.
How many episodes will there be in Stranger Things 3?
“It’ll be an eight or nine-episode season,” Levy said. We now know what is going to happen in season three to every character.”The titles of those eight episodes have now been revealed in a new teaser trailer that shows off the new title sequence too.
Those episodes are:
2.Do You Copy?
3.The Mall Rats
4.The Case of the Missing Lifeguard
5.The Sauna Test
9.The Battle of Starcourt.
What’s going to happen in Stranger Things 3?
we’ve already seen that happen: divisive episode ‘The Lost Sister’ from season two saw Eleven branch out and hang out with fellow telekinetic wonder Kali – AKA Eight. Chances are this was an important step to establishing a storyline outside the show’s usual setting of Hawkins, Indiana. According to The Duffer Brothers,”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.
Star David Harbour – who plays Jim Hopper – suggested to Insider that a long-held fan theory about his daughter Sara (it’s thought she died in Hawkins Lab) could be true. When the similarity between where Hopper was seen slumped in a stairwell in season one and where Dr. Owens was found hiding in season two was pointed out to him, Harbour responded: “It is the same location. So that’s interesting. Or it’s a similar location.”
Speaking at a special screening of Stranger Things back in August, Harbour revealed an unlikely source of inspiration for Stranger Things 3: the 1985 comedy Fletch, which starred Chevy Chase. The caper has apparently provided the Duffer brothers with some creative ideas for the new season. Harbour also said that Hopper’s fatherly relationship with Eleven will become more complicated as the season unfolds. “Their relationship is going to get far more complex, because, you know, things happen to girls and boys when they’re 13 and 14… a lot of changes go on in the body and in your social life, and I don’t think [Hopper’s] going to handle watching her become a woman in front of his eyes very well.
A new set of plot spoilers for season three has been released into the wild via the medium of an official companion book to the show, Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down.
