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 news that production of Season 3 has started.
Well, get ready Stranger Things fans. It looks like our faves are finally back in Hawkins.
Earlier today, the official Twitter account for the series posted a behind-the-scenes video of the cast sitting down to do their first official table read for the upcoming season. With the caption of “back at it, nerds,” fans can officially celebrate the production of the long-awaited third season of Stranger Things.

The best part?
We're now getting to see the old, and new, faces that will be thrown into the Hawkins madness, and we seriously can't wait to see what's next. It doesn't look like we're alone, either. The cast shared their reactions of the table reading as well:

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.
