Season 3 may not arrive until 2019

Season 3 may not arrive until 2019

The scene became the defining meme for Stranger Things' second season, spawning Twitter accounts and video remixes - and plentiful gifs. The reason, he said, is because the show's creators, the Duffer brothers, need time to write the scripts. "Like, you probably won't get [season 3] until sometime in 2019". And those guys work so hard. "They just sit in their apartment and write for 12, 14 hours a day".

The actor also talked about how he compared season one "Stranger Things" from season two, describing them as great individual pieces of their own. Hence, a delay in the show's return date isn't surprising.

Season 2 began production in November 2016, wrapped up in June 2017, and premiered in late October. If Harbour is right and Season 3 does dip into 2019, it stands to reason that it will benefit from the extra time and blow our minds.

After the news hit that Harbour was in the running for his first ever Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a TV series, he took to Twitter to express his excitement and gratitude for the opportunity.

Stranger Things season three probably won't be released until 2019 because the world is a dark and cruel place.

"It forces you to do a time jump. It forces the show to evolve and change, because the kids are changing", he later added.

The work I do on "Stranger Things" has been the most satisfying of my career, due to the brilliance of all departments, but of course most especially the writing and directing of the Duffer Brothers and the directing and producing of Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen and the generous license to play that Netflix gives us.
