Netflix has released two brand new stills for upcoming Duffer brother’s series Stranger Things 3, that teases more teams up between favourites Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Steve (Joe Keery), as well as a closer bond between Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard).
The Duffer Brother’s recently spoke to American publication Entertainment Weekly about the highly anticipated third season, teasing a period of change for the Hawkin’s kids we all know and love, as they’re growing up and possibly growing apart from each other, now Mike’s involved with Eleven…
“We wanted to explore the theme of change,” says Matt Duffer, who created the series with his brother, Ross. “The season takes place during the last summer before high school. The kids are growing up, and that transition is going to be messy and awkward and painful. Are they able to grow up without growing apart?”
They also teased the growing threat of the Mind Flayer that the kids will have eventually have to face again this coming Summer.
“Eleven closed the Gate, but the Mind Flayer is still alive in the Upside Down,” teases Matt. “It will find another way into Hawkins.… It’s just a matter of time.”
Check out the stills below!
