Stranger Things star David Harbour (aka Jim Hopper) has hinted towards when we’ll see Season 3 on Netflix, and it’s a little later than we’d hope—but it only makes sense.

“I mean, one of the things that’s annoying for fans is that it takes us a long time to do them,” he tells Variety. “You probably won’t get [Season 3] until sometime in 2019. But also part of the thing is, like any good thing, they need time. And those guys work so hard. I mean, they just sit in their apartment and write for 12, 14 hours a day.”

And, of course, we want Season 3 to be the best it can be, so I guess we can patiently wait until 2019 for a new season.

Season 3 was officially confirmed earlier this month and, of course, this is no surprise whatsoever. Everyone’s ready for more, and there are already speculations about what'll happen in Season 3. There might even be some hints from the writers and cast members… See everything we know so far here. (One thing we can expect? More ‘80s references. Heck yes.)

The first episode of Season 2 averaged a whopping 15.8 million viewers within the first three days. Not to mention, 361,000 people watched all nine episodes of the season within the first 24 hours of its release… That might have been us. We have no shame.

Season 2 gave us an unbelievable amount of epic and unforgettable moments. From Chief Jim Hopper’s incredible dancing flashback to when he and Eleven were cleaning up their new hideaway home (which is now an amazing meme), to the new cast members who stole our hearts, we’re just waiting as patiently as we can for Season 3.
