Stranger Things

Netflix



What's next, the Left-Side Right?

When "Stranger Things" returns for its third season on Netflix next summer (yes, summer 2019 ... sigh), the story will take some interesting twists and turns.

"The scripts are really great this year. And in the new directions that we're going, all of us are taking a lot of risks," star David Harbour told The Hollywood Reporter. "We're all a little bit out of our comfort zone."

New directions, eh? We've gone to the Upside Down, what other dimensions might be lurking in Hawkins, Indiana? You know, aside from a new Starcourt Mall:



Harbour didn't say much else, naturally. "I wish I could characterize the season, but to me it's so big," he continued.

"For example, did you find last season to be darker? There were certainly elements of it that were scary, but I thought there was also a lot of fun, a lot of joy and a lot of silliness, with Steve being a dad and the kids as Ghostbusters. Just taking my story, for example, it's fun to see Hopper having adopted Eleven. She's become legitimized in the society, in the world of Hawkins. And he's a father now. He's raising a teenage daughter, with all that that entails. So I think that can be pretty funny to see his inadequacies in all of this."

We're calling it: Hopper's new direction is making epic dad jokes.
