'Stranger Things' given third season on Netflix

Netflix's 'Dark'


Netflix have renewed Stranger Things for a third season.

The story of a group of friends in Hawkins, Indiana based in the 1980's has gripped audiences and critics alike. The battles begin after a lab in the town opens up a door to an alternate universe called the Upside Down. But Digital Spy reported that we might see a new trailer in spring 2018.

This includes the return of Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, David Harbour as police chief Jim Hopper, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler and Millie Bobby Brown, as the mysteriously powerful child Eleven. It was also an absolute "ratings" monster (insofar as Netflix has ratings) that solidified the series as one of Netflix's biggest hits and one of the most popular shows around. This could mean that the third season could take longer especially if they decide to add another episode as they did with season 2.

The show's second season released back in October this year, and was met with positive acclaim to match the first 80s nostalgia trip. "Like we're going to stretch credibility". Watching those kids and actors grow up in front of the camera was, to me, very powerful. While the /Film staff was mixed on the sophomore season (it has its ardent defenders!), there's no denying the fact that people love this show and that there's more than enough juice in it to power a few more seasons.

"Stranger Things" has won five Emmys and a 2017 SAG Award, according to The Wrap.
