Though the series won’t hit Netflix until Christmas, the third season of “Stranger Things” is already in development. The director and executive producer, Shawn Levy, said in a statement to Mashable that there will be plenty of “Stranger Things” seasons in the future. He explains that the crew has various interesting ideas for the second and third seasons of the show. However, it’s very tough to give it a date since the development is continued.

Shawn says that if Netflix does not pick up the new seasons of “Stranger Things,” he will contact Amazon or another network to sell the rights.

On the other hand, some writers argue that the first season plot was very weak. To this, Levy replies that he is writing the stories and dialogues himself so there won’t be any problem.

‘Stranger Things’ – a science fiction show

“Stranger Things” is a popular web television by the Duffer Brothers and Shawn Levy, with Dan Cohen serving as the screenplay writer. The cast includes Noah Schnapp, Millie Bobby, Cara Buono, Joe Keery, Winona Ryder, Finn Wolfhard, David Harbour, Natalie Dyer, Matthew Modine, and Gaten Matarazzo.

The most exciting thing is that all of these stars are returning from the first season, with Dacre Montgomery and Sadie Sink as new cast members. The story revolves around a boy, Hawkins, who gets kidnapped by his own friends.

Later on, the police officer discovers that supernatural events are occurring around the city, including the appearance of a psychokinetic boy and girl who help the cops in finding the missing boy.

The Duffer Brothers have created the show as a mix of supernatural powers and investigative drama. Some of the directorial aspects are inspired by the projects of John Carpenter, Steven Spielberg, and others.

Critical response

The show was originally released on Netflix in August 2016, receiving critical acclaim for its atmosphere, background music, direction, screenplay, and performances of the stars. The first season received several awards and nominations, including two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and nine Filmfare Awards.

Season 2

The second season will focus on incidents of Halloween when the missing boy gets discovered. He is back to his home but the supernatural powers are after him. Levy describes that the season will mainly cover up the incidents of the personal life of the lost boy. He attempts to rebuild his life and develops a relationship with his neighbor, Nancy.

The director names "Madmax," "The Pumpkin Patch," "The Storm," “The Secret Cabin,” "The Pollywog," “The Lost Brother,” and "The Brain" as the best episodes.
