EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT ‘STRANGER THINGS’ SEASON 3
Is there going to be a Stranger Things Season 3?
“FOR THE LOVE OF STEVE, DUH!” That’s what the streaming service said a month after 2 ‘s release, when it made things official. The quick re-up makes sense: Netflix nixing Season 3 would have been like the Bulls dropping Michael Jordan in 1997 — extremely dumb, basically impossible. Nielsen said that a “significant viewing event occurred” when 2 premiered at the end of October, with a reported 15.8 million Stateside viewers tuning into the first episode in the first three days (plus the full nine-episode run averaged 4 million, and 361,000 lunatics became permanently fused to their couches as they watched the whole thing within the first 24 hours of release). The Walking Dead‘s most recent premiere bagged around 15 million viewers. In other words, Stranger Things is the streaming service’s MVP. You can probably bank on at least a four-peat.
FOR THE LOVE OF STEVE, DUH! So hold tight baby darts — season 3 is officially happening.
