Netflix has quietly renewed Stranger Things for Season 3, RenewCancelTV can exclusively reveal.
The third season pick up comes months ahead of the sci-fi period drama’s second season release on October 27.
In the upcoming second season, it’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.
The proactive Season 3 renewal is not a surprise given the huge success of the series, with the creators already in the midst of mapping out its four to five season run.
Stranger Things Season 3 doesn’t yet have a hard release date, but is expected to drop in 2019, per sources.
