Netflix has been producing many popular original series and movies. One that has stuck out from the rest considerably is Stranger Things. With fans around the world, it’s no wonder the Duffer Brothers are in for another season, their third one! Although this news comes as no surprise to some, the closure of knowing for sure must be sweet. During the PaleyFest Panel at Dolby Theater, executive producer Shawn Levy spoke about the new season. He confirmed the cast and crew will be back to work this month on Stranger Things Season 3!
What This Means for the Characters
A lot about the new season was confirmed during this panel. Also, the cast discussed their relationships on-set, as well as how the show affected their lives. Winona Ryder went on to share how she had a crush on Sean Astin. I mean… who hasn’t? Sean, of course, played the very lucky Bob Newby in Stranger Things Season Two.
Shawn Levy confirmed that Mike and Eleven will be a “couple” in the new season, as will Lucas and Max.
“Mike and Eleven… 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.”
The ongoing emotions that were set between Mike and Eleven were met at the end of Season Two. Since the cast had not received the script yet, the status of the characters was news to the actors as well. It will be interesting to see how the dynamic between the two will blossom, or differ in the upcoming season.
Who Else is Returning for Stranger Things Season 3?
I know what you’re all thinking: “What about Steve?!” Don’t fret, Levy confirmed that there will be more of him, for all you Steve lovers.
“We’ll definitely get to see some more of Steve Harrington in season three, and I’ll just say we won’t be abandoning the Dad Steve magic.”
This panel certainly gave fans a closer look into the upcoming season. With discussions of what to expect and insight from the cast, Stranger Things Season 3 is on its way. Let the easter egg-filled adventures begin!
