If you are a fan of Stranger Things, you better cling to that Stranger Things season 3 teaser they released a while ago, because that’s likely all we are getting for a while. Netflix programming exec Cindy Holland has revealed that the third season of the Duffer brothers’ show is launching in the summer of 2019. That’s a super long wait of over 15 months between the first two seasons and a minimum of 18 months after season 2.
This is because the Duffers and executive producer Shawn Levy want to provide “bigger and better” material than in the second installment. There will be more special effects than before too. Plus Netflix wants to get it right and please the fan.
Still, I’m sure that Netflix is not too worried about Stranger Things’ extra development time since it has about 700 originals lined up for 2018 alone, but even so, it can’t afford to wait too long. You have to keep viewers coming back for more. Not all of their shows get good numbers after all. More Stranger Things could be crucial to keeping the company’s growth and revenue on track.
We will have to see what happens. Hopefully, they can trim some time off of that estimate.
