It looks like the Duffer Brothers are finally ready to begin production on Netflix’s Stranger Things Season 3. But the series won’t be returning anytime soon according to its production schedule.
UPDATE: A recent report states filming will wrap on October 2nd, suggesting further delay for Season 3’s premiere.
A listings report from Production Weekly has revealed that Stranger Things Season 3 will begin filming on April 23. Furthermore, Season 3 will be filmed under the working title “Wonder View”, the same was used for the last season as well.
Filming will take place in Atlanta as it did with Season 2. Production is scheduled to wrap on September 14th.
It is likely that Stranger Things Season 3 will premiere late January or February 2019. Season 2’s production was wrapped in June and the series returned nearly 5 months later on October 27th.
Last December, David Harbour also suggested the same stating fans “probably won’t get [Season 3] until sometime in2019.”
Season 3 is expected to take place a year after the incidents that occurred in Season 2 as suggested by the show’s producers during an interview with Collider. Fans can check out the video below.
The upcoming season is also expected to broaden its plot to touch upon other elements outside the fictional town Hawkins. In Season 2, fans got to see Eleven interact with Kali aka Eight, a fellow telekinetic. It is possible that the directors have made plans to establish other stories that do not just revolve around the town.
In other Stranger Things related news, the Duffer Brothers have responded to claims of Verbal Abuse on set through a statement.
For those unaware, the directors were accused of verbally abusing multiple women on the set by production crew member Peyton Brown. Here’s the directors’ response via the statement from THR.
“We are deeply upset to learn that someone felt uncomfortable on our set. Due to the high-stress nature of production, tempers occasionally get frayed, and for that, we apologize. However, we think it is important not to mischaracterize our set, where we believe strongly in treating everyone fairly regardless of gender, orientation, race, religion, or anything else. We remain totally committed to providing a safe and collaborative working environment for everyone on our productions.”
