Netflix today made official what most everybody already knew: Stranger Things has been renewed for a third season. The news really comes as no surprise given that the series is one of the hottest properties out there right now, easily ranking as one of pop culture's most-talked about TV shows.

The 1980s-themed horror/mystery drama burst onto the scene last year and wasted no time in amassing a huge following backed up by plenty of critical praise and awards. Everything from its enthralling storytelling and immensely-likable characters to its creepy atmosphere and nostalgic references to old movies and televsion, really struck a chord with a wide range of viewers.

Created by the Duffer Brothers, Stranger Things takes place in Hawkins, Indiana with the town rattled by the disappearance of a 12-year-old boy that leads to a string of events ranging from an unknown supernatural force being unleashed to a mysterious girl that possesses psychokinetic abilities.

There have been no details announced yet regarding Season 3 in terms of returning cast members or storyline. While no premiere date is known either, a late-2018 return appears likely.
