Stranger Things officially renewed for a third season
There can't have been too many people who seriously thought that there wouldn't be a third season of the Duffer brothers' hit series, but now it's official: Netflix have given the green light for a third instalment of Stranger Things.
It's news that will come as no surprise to those who have been following the chatter around the show closely, especially since Matt and Ross Duffer have been openly throwing around ideas about what a third season might entail in the weeks since Stranger Things 2 arrived, but with an official thumbs-up from Netflix the pair can now get to work on the next series of adventures in the town of Hawkins, Indiana.
Beyond the Duffer brothers' speculative talk in recent weeks there are still no concrete plans for a storyline for the third season, and as yet there is no proposed release date, though it seems likely that Netflix may stick with the Halloween release date that proved such a perfect fit for the show's second season released this year.
The Duffer brothers will serve as executive producers, with Dan Cohen and Iain Patterson expected to co-produce along with Shawn Levy directing.
