Stranger Things Season 3: Casting Call For 80s Looking People & More

Stranger Things season 1 and season 2 was all about the 80s references and it doesn’t look like the showrunners are going to dial down that factor for the upcoming season as well. Though the details regarding its plot won’t be out anytime soon, a casting call we spotted does share some information from season 3 episodes that were filmed during June and episodes currently being filmed.

A casting call posted on Backstage reveals a search for extras to portray as 1980s looking people. Both male and female above the age of 18 are required. For men, the requirement is to have at least 3″ of hair, long all around. For women, “hair must be shoulder-length or shorter“. People of all ethnicities can apply for the role. The filming took place on July 3, in Atlanta.

Another casting call from the same website revealed the need for extras to play as “Attractive Female Dancer”. People between the age of 18-40 with no bar on ethnicity can apply for the role.

The second requirement from the listing states the need of background actors for a role described as “Attractive Men with 1980’s Big Hair“. As usual, people of all ethnicities can apply. The casting call is still live so it is possible that there may still be a need for extras with the above-mentioned qualities.

In a recent interview by Collider, Stranger Things DP Tim Ives assured that fans can expect the upcoming season to be as colorful as Season 2. Hopefully, we get to see more interesting 80s references as well and fans can expect to see the ‘big bad’ from last season return.

In more Stranger Things news, it looks like there’s one character that won’t be returning for Season 3. Brace yourself for SPOILER. you have been warned.

Actor Noah Schnapp, during his recent appearance at Chicago Comic-con, spilled the beans that Byers’ family dog, Chester died and that fans will get to see “like a grave for him” in Season 3.
