Fans of Stranger Things should start getting excited because season 3 of the popular Netflix show is no longer a rumor, it's been confirmed. With two months until the premiere of Stranger Things season 2, there's plenty of time for the internet to speculate on but fans can do it knowing that the adventures of the Hawkins A.V. club will continue, as today we got confirmation of just that from the Duffer brothers.
The brothers have confirmed that the series will get a third season and possibly a fourth to end the series on. That's a nice even number and since season 2 will lay the groundwork for the show's ending it means a third season of a brand new story before wrapping up the show. Where the series will go in the future remains a mystery, but the Duffer brothers have a few ideas.
In an extensive interview with Vulture, Matt Duffer wants to keep the story evolving, while easing up on turning their child stars' worlds upside down. "I don't know if we can keep having something bad happen to them once a year," Duffer said. When asked if there's a hopeful note for them to go out on, he offered that, "They'll have to get the fuck out of town."
No matter what happens with this crazy season, fans can rest easy that the adventures of the Hawkins A.V. Club will continue. The show has captured hearts and minds and might capture a few Emmy Awards as well. Even though season 2 isn't out yet, season 3 makes sense. From a decision to create posters inspired by iconic '80s horror as well as classic '80s science fiction, the series is embracing nostalgia while creating something new. Season 3 is exciting news for '80s fans, and is sure to drive fan speculation for years to come.
There's plenty of things for fans of Stranger Things to speculate on before we start to focus on a season 3, though. From popular fan theories to an extremely worrisome response about Will becoming the villain of season 2, fans of Stranger Things have a lot to think about before the series drops in October. What happens afterward, much like the Upside Down, will remain a mystery until more information is revealed.
