In season 3 of Stranger Things, one thing we can expect is a time jump!
This is the easiest way to go around the puberty issue when filming is a time jump!
It happened between seasons one (which was set in 1983) and two (1984) and it will happen again for season three.
While speaking at the Stranger Things PaleyFest panel with the cast over the weekend, executive producer Shawn Levy revealed next season will be set in the summer of 1985.
Shawn also added that Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink), respectively, would all be couples at the beginning of the season.
None of the cast had gotten the script yet, so Millie learned that she would be in a relationship on the carpet.
Shawn said, "Mike and Eleven and are going strong, so that’s a relationship that continues, and same with Mad Max and Lucas. But Again, they’re like 13 or 14-year-old kids, so what does romance mean at that stage of life? It can never be simple and stable relationships and there’s fun to that instability."
Are you excited for the new season?
