Stranger Things is taking a bit of a break…
And it won’t be back until 2019.
During an interview with Variety, David Harbour – who plays Hawkins Police Chief Jim Hopper – revealed that Stranger Things Season 3 won’t be ready until 2019… and there’s a good reason for that, too.
“I mean, one of the things that’s annoying for fans is that it takes us a long time to do them,” he explained. “Like, you probably won’t get [Season 3] until sometime in 2019.”
“But also part of the thing is, like any good thing, they need time,” he added. “And those guys work so hard. I mean, they just sit in their apartment and write for 12, 14 hours a day.”
Of course, he’s referring to the Duffer Brothers – the creative minds behind Stranger Things.
And since the show became a cultural phenomenon when it debuted back in 2016, they’ve been hard at work, hashing out the ongoing story of Eleven and the Upside Down. But now it looks as though they’ll need a bit more time before the next instalment.
And that could be a good thing.
It certainly gives the show’s young cast some time to breathe… and it might even mean that some time will pass on the show as the young actors continue to grow up. Sure, we’ll miss out on some of their formative years, but it could prove interesting to see how they mature in the time that passes.
Sadly, it means we have a bit of a wait ahead of us.
And the many questions left hanging at the end of Season Two will stay there.
At least, for the time being.
Stranger Things stars David Harbour, Millie Bobbie Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Winona Ryder, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, Joe Keery, and Matthew Modine.
Stranger Things Season 3 is coming to Netflix in 2019.
