Netflix’s STRANGER THINGS Renewed for Season 3
Surprising exactly no one, the supernatural Netflix thriller Stranger Things will be back for a third season after another successful outing. Following its surprising but emboldening SAG win earlier this year, the question was how the popular show would do when its second season dropped.
All questions where quickly put to rest. The show was a hit and its life has been extended. The series focuses in a small town in Indiana in the 1980s and started with the disappearance of a young boy under mysterious circumstances. It was created by the Duffer Brothers.
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.
Stranger Things received 18 Emmy nominations this year (with five wins) and, as mentioned, 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. The series is critically acclaimed, currently Certified Fresh, with a 94% rating for both Season 1 and Season 2 on Rotten Tomatoes.
