We may still be recovering from the ups and downs of Season 2 of Stranger Things, but that doesn't mean we haven't been anxiously awaiting the highly anticipated third season of the show.
Over the weekend, Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) and Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) appeared at Netflix’s FYSee Event at Raleigh Studios, where the two teased what to expect from their characters in the upcoming season.
Per a report from Variety, Schnapp shared that his character will be a blend of his character from the first two seasons, saying: “Season 1, I feel like, was more playful. Season 2 was a lot darker. And then Season 3 does really well blending them together, and that’s what I love about it.”
During the end of the show’s second season, we saw that things for Brown’s character, Eleven, was looking up (luckily not upside down), and it appears that her storyline will continue that progression:
“It’s a beautiful storyline for Eleven this season,” she tells Variety. “It’s really a coming of age for her and understanding what being a normal teenage girl is.”
We’re pretty interested to see just how these two characters will adjust to the town of Hawkins, and it looks like we won’t have to wait too much longer! A few weeks ago, the show’s official Twitter page announced that they were starting production for the third season with a sweet video that introduced old, and new, favorites!

Season 3 can't come soon enough!
There's not a whole lot of information regarding the show's third season, but we do know that the cast will be adding three new characters into the Hawkins mix—an “alternative girl,” Cary Elwes playing the Hawkins mayor, a “handsome, slick and sleazy” '80s politician and Jake Busey playing a local journalist with “questionable morals.”
As previously reported, the show's producers recently shared that Season 3 will take place during the summer of 1985, a year after Season 2. Plus, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard), as well as Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink), will begin the season as couples.
The best news, though? Producer and director Shawn Levy tells fans that Steve (Joe Keery) will have a bigger role in Season 3—and dad Steve is BACK.
“We'll definitely get to see some more of Steve Harrington in Season Three, and I'll just say we won't be abandoning the Dad Steve magic. I don't want to say much more, but I literally feel that we were walking along and we stumbled onto a gold mine with Dad Steve,” Levy said.
The third season of Stranger Things is set to debut sometime in 2019.
