Netflix’s Stranger Things created a household name for Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp. The popular science fiction thriller re-introduced our love for the ‘80s classics.
When we last left things in Hawkins, Indiana, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) had closed the Gate that gave access to the Mind Flayer. However, the Mind Flayer still exists in the Upside Down and will surely find its way back to the town.
While fans are anticipating the premiere of season three next month, the stars give their take on the show finding a proper way to exit.
“I think we should stop whenever the story feels like it needs to be completed,” said Gaten Matarazzo. “I don’t think any season should be pushed. If there’s no more story, there’s no more story.”
Added Finn Wolfhard, “I think we definitely need one more to tie it all up.” Schnapp agreed with five seasons being enough for the show telling its story.
“Either one or two more, for sure,” Wolfhard said. “At least one more to tie it up.”
When the trailer for season three was released, the vibe was different from previous seasons. Although still an ode to the ‘80s, the scenes showed the kids a bit more grown up now after a year from the events of season two.
“We wanted to explore the theme of change,” co-creator Matt Duffer previously told EW. “The season takes place during the last summer before high school. The kids are growing up, and that transition is going to be messy and awkward and painful. Are they able to grow up without growing apart?”
What seems like a typical summer will soon take a dark and dangerous turn for the residents of Hawkins.
Watch the premiere of season three for Strangers Things on July 4 on Netflix.
