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.

Stranger things season 3 could just be the cast hanging out and going to school and playing board games and I'd still watch it twice— Katie ♡ (@ItsKatieTracy) February 15, 2018
Not sure why people are freaking out over the fact that there is one less episode of #StrangerThings in season 3. Unless that’s the last season.— MasquedBlonde (@HeavyMetalDisco) February 16, 2018
Better not be.
I’ve seen far worse series get at least five seasons.
We got a pretty great thing going on here.
So it better not be. pic.twitter.com/ASOzkW2LQz
