'Stranger Things' Season 3 Officially Confirmed By Netflix

As expected as Will Byers having a supernaturally bad day, Netflix officially announced it's renewing Stranger Things for a third season today.

The announcement, posted on Twitter, comes weeks after the show dropped its hotly anticipated second season, bringing a darker and gorier level to the Hawkins-based drama.

That said, should the popularity of Stranger Things continue to skyrocket-and those involved continue to be interested-it's possible the series could run beyond four seasons. So we will probably have to wait until late 2018, or even early 2019 before we get to see what happens next.

Both seasons hold a 94 percent "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and Season 1 picked up five Emmy Awards out of 18 nominations.

According to the report, fans should not expect the same formula for Season 3 as the creators shared that there will be some time jump due to the nature of the young cast. We can only write and produce the show so fast.

Season 3 should start off from where Season 2 left off. It provides certain challenges.

Season two, which Netflix released October 27, played off similar themes as the first season and has also received positive reviews. It's cool, though. The audience is going to be able to watch these kids come of age every year. "Beyond that, it becomes I think very unlikely".
