Stranger Things Season 3 To Finish Filming In November


Since its initial release in 2016, the retro/sci-fi/horror series Stranger Things has rapidly become one of the most popular and successful shows on TV today. Each season since the first has been heavily anticipated by fans around the globe and though the wait for Season 3 has proven longer than expected, the wait is almost over.

Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy told THR on the Emmys red carpet last night that the third season will finish principal photography in November.

Plot details surrounding the heavily-anticipated third season have been kept under tight wraps, though we know to expect a significant jump in time between the end of Season 2 and the start of Season 3. One thing we do know is that Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) is now living the life of a normal teenage girl, going to school and going by a new name; Jane Hopper.

Co-creator Ross Duffer stated recently to Yahoo! that a time jump is crucial to the show’s future, as the cast of the series are growing and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. He stated:

“It will have to be somewhat of a time gap, because the kids are, I mean, they already look so much older. No matter what we want to do, I remember when we were originally talking about Season 2, we wanted to just start it in Christmas and just go from there, but then we realized the kids are just too old, so we had to jump forward. Even the latest trailer, we had to loop a line with Caleb. He sounds like a man now. It creeps me out. He’s going to be driving to set next year.”

This is especially game changing for the actors like Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton, who play Nancy and Jonathan, respectively. Both actors are in their early-to-mid 20s  and their ability to depict high school students is becoming less and less reasonable. As a result, Season 3 will begin with those characters likely having transitioned to college, and the younger kids will have having gone from middle school to high school.

Shawn Levy has also stated that the third season is aiming to be more dark and action-packed, and will be without a doubt the most cinematic season yet.

With filming planned to be finished in November, the long wait for the third season is fast coming to a close.
