Production For Season Three Of ‘Stranger Things’ Is Finally Getting Underway
It's been months since fans of Stranger Things binged on season two of the Netflix show and many of us have been waiting in agony for the next chapter. What happened to the Mind Flayer and Kali? Will the town of Hawkins ever be the same again? Who will be the next villain?
While we don't have those answers just yet, we do have news that production for season three has finally got underway. Netflix has released a video showing the cast and crew getting together to run some lines and acquaint themselves with the script.
The video revealed that we can expect whole gang back again, including Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Noah Schnapp and Joe Keery.
But there will also be a few new names added to the list: Maya Hawke, Cary Elwes, and Jake Busey.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Elwes will be cast as a 'sleazy politician' and Busey is a journalist at a local newspaper, the Hawkins Post, who will likely be prodding into all the weird and mysterious things that have happened in the town in the past two years. Hawke's character is described an 'alternative girl' who finds out a bit too much.
Little has been leaked about the third instalment to the fan favourite that is Stranger Things, but apparently we're going to get a lot more action from Steve Harrington, played by Joe Keery.
The cast and creatives responsible for the Netflix hit gathered at the Dolby Theatre, LA, back in March to discuss the making of the most recent series.
However, before they took to the stage, executive producer Shawn Levy spilled a few secrets on the red carpet, giving us a little bit of insight on what to expect next time round.
"I don't want to say much more, but I literally feel that we were walking along and we stumbled onto a gold mine with 'Dad Steve'," he told the Hollywood Reporter.
Shawn added that love will definitely be in the air for Stranger Things season three, saying: "Mike and Eleven and are going strong, so that's a relationship that continues, and same with Mad Max and Lucas.
"But again, they're like 13 or 14-year-old kids, so what does romance mean at that stage of life? It can never be simple and stable relationships and there's fun to that instability."
Unfortunately there's been no release date for the next chapter so we'll all just have to sit and wait.
