Rumor had it that the world of Upside Down was coming to an end in season 3 finale of Netflix’s Stranger Things with multiple headlines mentioning that it could be Duffer Brother’s last. Netflix US put the rumors to rest by tweeting that the reports are false.
Relieved fans instantly responded with multiple thank yous. “Don't drop your Eggos. Rumours that the Duffer Bros are leaving Stranger Things after season 3 are false,” read the tweet accompanied by a gif.
Netflix Life has confirmed that the filming of 1980s-set science thriller series will commence in April and will wrap up by September. While the next season is unlikely to air until 2019 as established by David Harbour in his interview with Variety, the details are trickling down and fans are eagerly waiting. What has been confirmed so far is that the season will be one episode shorter than Season 2, which means eight episodes, the same as that of Season 1.
Co-showrunner Matt Duffer told The Hollywood Reporter that the next season will take place in 1985, a year advance from the end of Season 2. Another insight shared is that Kali, Eleven’s lost sister will likely be back on Season 3.
As for other important characters, executive producer Shawn Levy says to Glamour that Will Byers will not be the Upside Down's vessel. "We're going to give Will a break," he explained to Glamour. "We're not going to put Will through hell for a third season in a row. He'll be dealing with stuff, but he won't be at rock bottom the way we forced the amazing Noah Schnapp to play."
While we eagerly keep our eggos warm and patiently wait for 2019, let us look at the immediate reactions of the fans who took to tweeting and weeping to find the much-needed solace on rumors put to rest.
