Netflix has greenlit critically acclaimed drama “Stranger Things” for a third season, with an unconfirmed number of new episodes for 2018. Debuting with season one on July 15, 2016, the series takes place in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, where a secret government lab accidentally opens a door to another dimension referred to as the Upside Down.
The news comes just months after “Stranger Things” picked up five awards, out of 18 nominations, at the 2017 Emmy Awards. It also picked up a SAG Award earlier this year for best drama series ensemble.
The sophomore season found the young characters (played by Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo and Sadie Sink) dealing with a dark force took control of one character.
”Stranger Things” also stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour as Chief Jim Hopper, Cara Buono Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery and Dacre Montgomery.
