The third season of Stranger Things was officially green-lit on December 1, 2017.[1] It is currently in the early stages of development. An official release date has yet to be revealed.

While no specific plot details have been revealed, the season will have a time jump like the previous season.[2]


The Duffers stated they wanted to start the third season with a clean state, intentionally ending the previous season with few cliffhangers.[3] They also hinted that several ideas that didn't make it in the second season may be used this season.[2] As of mid-November, the season is in the early stages of development.[4]


According to actor David Harbour, production is scheduled to begin in April 2018.[5]
