With two seasons under its belt, there are three things that fans can bank on seeing in Stranger Things: '80s nostalgia, Eggo waffles and that Will Byers is in for a rough day. When the hit Netflix series returns for a third season, however, it appears that Will's run of bad luck is (mostly) over.
"We're going to give Will a break," Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy told Glamour. "We’re not going to put Will through hell for a third season in a row. He’ll be dealing with stuff, but he won’t be at rock bottom the way we forced the amazing Noah Schnapp to play [previously]."
Levy made sure to clarify that although Will might be taking a bit of breather during the series' next foray, there will absolutely still be malevolence afoot in Hawkins, Indiana, adding, "We're [going to be] dealing with forces of evil that are new."
While its third season is yet to receive a confirmed release date, Seasons 1 and 2 of Stranger Things are currently available on Netflix. The series stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, Matthew Modine, Noah Schnapp, Joe Keery, Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery.
