The cast and crew of the award-winning Stranger Things gathered in the Adobe Theatre this week and boy, did they dish.
According to executive producer Shawn Levy, season 3 will take place in the summer of 1985, a year after the finale of the second season. Our return to chateau-de-weird-shit-keeps-happening-here (Hawkins) will be marked by tween-age romance, as Levy announced that both Eleven and Mike, Max and Lucas, would be official items at the start of the season.
We will also see the return of Steve Harrington (i.e dad Steve). Levy revealed that Steve will again be adopting a parental role, commenting “we won’t be abandoning the dad Steve magic.”
Levy further answered the internet’s collective prayers in announcing that Lucas’s sassy little sister – Erica – would be awarded a bigger role in Season 3.
There was also an allusion to the arrival of a new character, Robin. Apparently, she’s a “young woman who is bored at her job until she learns more about Hawkins’ darkest secrets.”
Can someone please warn her to stay the fuck away from Hawkins?
And, on top of that, why haven’t any of the main characters left? Like, can’t you just move away from the giant laboratory and all the monsters that keep trying to kill your son (@WinonaRyder).
