The first season of Netflix’s original series Stranger Things had eight episodes. The second season had nine. The third season does not have ten. In fact, the number goes down to eight again. This confirmation comes from TVLine who also reports that production for the season will start mid-April 2018. I’m really excited for this series to return, but am very sad that it probably won’t be until 2019. We still don’t know too much, but I’m glad to know that Will Byers will catch a break. I’ve felt so bad for him these last two seasons. My wife and I have joked before that season 3 should just be about Will having the best day of his life. Maybe he goes to Disneyland!
Apart from Will catching a break after two brutal seasons, I’m excited to see more Dustin and Steve. That relationship was a nice surprise and it really made me care about Steve. I’m sad we’re only getting eight episodes in season 3, but I’m sure they’ll be great just like the last two.
