Strangers Things 2

Story by Jack Foley

NETFLIX has announced that one of its landmark shows, Stranger Things, is now in production for Season 3.

The official synopsis for the third season reads: “A love letter to the ’80s classics that captivated a generation, Stranger Things is set in 1983 Indiana, where a young boy vanishes into thin air.

“As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.”

The announcement was accompanied by an official video.

Returning for the third season are ‘old friends’ Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Sadie Sink (Max), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) and Noah Schnapp (Will).

There’s also the teenage cast of characters – Dacre Montgomery (Billy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), Natalie Dyer (Nancy), and Joe Keery (Steve) – and the adults, including Cara Buono (Karen), Winona Ryder (Joyce) and David Harbour (Hopper).

But most significantly, the video introduces several newcomers, or “strangers” as they’re called in the video, including Maya Hawke, Jake Busey and Cary Elwes, all of whom were announced as part of the cast over the last two months.

According to Netflix, Hawke plays Robin, a woman on a collision course with a dark secret in Hawkins; Busey will play Bruce, a Hawkins Post journalist with questionable morals; and Elwes is playing Mayor Kline, described as a slick and sleazy politician.

As yet, plot details remain sketchy.

Stranger Things and Stranger Things 2 are available on Netflix now.
