Stranger Things: Season 3 Episode Count Has Been Lowered

Season 3 of Stranger Things will not have the same episode count that Season 2 of the hit Netflix TV show did. Season 2 of Stranger Things was nine episodes long, with the final episode featuring the showdown between Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and The Mind Flayer.

Season 3 of Stranger Things will only eight episodes long, the same length as Season 1. Usually when a show is as successful Stranger Things, the episode count increases.

My guess is that the narrative of Season 3 does not support a ninth episode. Instead of the narrative being manipulated to accommodate a lengthier season, remember Peter Jackson‘s Hobbit films being stretched from two films to three and how they turned out, Stranger Things‘ creators have made a sensible and thoughtful choice.

Season 3 of Stranger Things will begin filming in April 2018. The setting of Stranger Things: Season 3 will be 1985.

Stranger Things: Season 2’s plot synopsis “It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.”

Stranger Things: Season 2 starred Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, Matthew Modine, Sadie Sink, Dacre Montgomery, Brett Gelman, Linnea Berthelsen, Sean Astin, and Paul Reiser.
