Netflix has officially greenlit Stranger Things 3, surprising literally no one.
Stranger Things 2 has been out for a while, and when the news came out that the Duffer Brothers’ nostalgia-fueled series sequel was the most streamed show in the platform’s history, season three had been a foregone conclusion.
That being said, the eventual appraisal of Stranger Things 2 was much milder than the original season. Reviews were mostly positive, and It held up its end of the bargain with the thrills and the callbacks, but it didn’t quite capture the zeitgeist the way the first season did. Which is to be expected, but it also means Stranger Things 3 might wind up being the end of a trilogy.
Obviously there are no more details right now, and there probably won’t be until this new season drops. My prediction: look for it in October 2018.
