Stranger Things season 3 probably won't be released on Netflix until 2019

Season two of "Stranger Things" premiered in November, earning positive reviews from critics, much like the show's first season.

Sophie Turner recently reminded us that Game of Thrones won't be back until 2019, and now Stranger Things star David Harbour (who plays Police Chief Jim Hopper) is saying the same thing about Stranger Things 3. "The more time they take, the better the scripts are, and so that, to me, is the most important thing".

"Those guys work so hard", Harbour said.

Stranger Things Season 3 has been officially confirmed by Netflix. "They just sit in their apartment and write for 12, 14 hours a day".

Harbour told Variety that the masterminds behind the series, the Duffer brothers, will probably need a ton of time to actually write the next season.


Though the news is tough to hear, Stranger Things' delayed premiere date shouldn't come as a surprise.

The second season launched in October and although Netflix doesn't reveal information about viewership, Nielsen reported that the first episode brought a staggering 15.8 million viewers within the first three days. Yet, the official confirmation of Season 3 and only Season 3 may be telling, since there had been rumblings in the past that Netflix was contemplating filming back-to-back seasons to negate the power of puberty over its young primary cast. "Though I don't know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year".

"We just have to keep adjusting the story", one of the Duffer brothers told Vulture before the renewal about the plans for season 3.

Stranger Things is now streaming on Netflix.
