We know, this seems like a no-brainer, but Netflix has officially announced that Stranger Things will be returning for a third season. The Duffer Bros. hit show dropped the highly-anticipated second season on Netflix in October to mostly positive reviews.
The announcement came on Twitter after a quick poll, and the streaming service provided a press release shortly after:
FOR THE LOVE OF STEVE, DUH! So hold tight baby darts — season 3 is officially happening.

The series stars Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, David Harbour as Chief Jim Hopper, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven,Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler, Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, Joe Keery as Steve Harrington, Dacre Montgomery as Billy, and Sadie Sink as Max, among others.
The series is created by The Duffer Brothers, who also serve as executive producers and directors along with Shawn Levy (who also directs), Dan Cohen and Iain Patterson. Stranger Things is a Netflix production.
Stranger Things received 18 Emmy nominations this year (with five wins) and was honored with the 2017 SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, as well as the 2017 Norman Felton Producer of the Year Award in Episodic Television — Drama from the Producers Guild of America.
We can’t help but wonder if the mention of Baby Darts is a clue to the next season or a nod to the fanbase, but either way, we can’t wait to visit Hawkins and the Upside-Down again and again.
