Stranger Things Season 3 Will Not Arrive Until Next Summer
We’ll be waiting a little longer than usual to return to Hawkins.

Netflix has officially announced that we will not be returning to Hawkins until summer of next year, when Stranger Things season 3 is scheduled to hit the streaming platform. We suspected this would be the case after the ‘80s throwback mall teaser commercial dropped a hint that it will be "coming next summer," with this latest announcement confirming that this is indeed the case.
Netflix’s VP of original content, Cindy Holland, revealed the news at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour and offered a short explanation.
It’s a handcrafted show. The Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy have worked really hard, and they understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger and better than what they did last year. And so they really want to take the time to get it right.
Holland also took the time to reassure fans that the new season will be worth the wait. Season 2 was no doubt bigger in scale than the first and it looks like the Duffer brothers want to continue that trend with the next installment. We think it’s a safe bet to say it will be worth holding out another year for, as the series has been nothing but fantastic since debuting in July 2016.
Stranger Things season 3 will hit Netflix sometime next summer. In the meantime, stay tuned here on Dead Entertainment for all the latest updates.
