While it has been nearly a year and a half since the last season of Stranger Things premiered, according to star Natalia Dyer, the wait for Season 3 will be well worth it.
While promoting her latest film, Velvet Buzzsaw, at Sundance Film Festival, Dyer briefly spoke about the upcoming season, promising it will be bigger, darker and scarier than the previous two seasons.
"It does feel bigger, just filming it," explained Dyer in an interview with MTV. "I haven’t seen any of it, but it does feel bigger, darker, scarier. It felt like they noticeably bumped it up to a different level this season. So I’m excited to see it, too. I don’t know how they do it, [creators] the [Duffer] brothers, but yeah, I’m excited."
This lines up with previous comments by executive producer Shawn Levy who claimed that Season 3 will be "darker and more action-packed" than the preceding seasons. The third season had wrapped principal photography this past November for a July premiere.
Created by the Duffer Brothers, Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalie Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Priah Ferguson, Cary Elwes, Jake Busey and Maya Thurman-Hawke. Season 3 will debut on Netflix on July 4.
