Stranger Things Season 3 Is Officially Coming & We Know When
If you’re like anyone else on the planet, no doubt you’ve heard of, or started watching Stranger Things and become #obsessed.
It’s a phenomenon sweeping the planet right now - and just as we’re on the cusp of season two, it’s been announced that season three is in the works. Cue cheers.
A couple of months ago, showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer (collectively known as the Duffer Brothers) confirmed to Vulture that Season 3 of Stranger Things is on its way.
Unfortunately, they divulged a little bad news, too.
The guys said that the plan for Stranger Things was to have it end after four seasons, which means after the third is filmed, there’s only one left to go.
‘We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out... I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to [the kids] once a year.’
Since it's still pretty early, Elite Daily report that they don't have a firm grasp on when Season 3 is going to drop, and the erratic release schedule of the first two seasons isn't much help.
Season 1 dropped in mid-July of 2016, and Season 2 came out at the end of October of 2017.
If they follow that one year and three months gap, then Season 3 won't be released until around January of 2019.
However there’s also word that the Stranger Things team want to hurry up the release of the final two seasons - so there’s a chance we could get them even SOONER than we thought.
Another interesting detail is that the child actors starring in the show are reportedly signed on for a six-year contract.
But if the show ends after a fourth season, which will likely premiere towards the end of 2019, then are they out of their deals three years earlier than expected? Curiouser and curiouser…
