While fireworks will light up the sky on July 4th, there will fireworks on screen as well, when Netflix’s monster hit ‘Stranger Things’ returns for its third season. While no one wants to be spoiled and the cast certainly doesn’t want to spoil things for viewers, the actors were willing to offer a few teases.
For starters, newcomer Cary Elwes, who plays Hawkins Mayor Larry Kline stated:
“I can tell you that from my standpoint, I feel like this season is more intense and more powerful and terrifying than seasons 1 and 2 combined.”
That’s quite a bold statement, but after taking two years to craft the new season, it’s a sure bet that the show’s creators, the Duffer Brothers, were going to crank things up.
David Harbour, who plays Police Chief Jim Hopper, says that ‘Stranger Things 3’ is “bigger, epic, majestic, and extremely moving.” In particular, he says:
“I was blown away by episode 8.”
Harbour also promises surprises and curveballs that “I didn’t see coming.”
Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers), and Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler) both stated that the new episodes have more action, and Dacre Montgomery (Billy Hargrove) concurs:
“You see a lot of characters wield weapons and do fight choreography — characters that you haven’t seen do that before. The last day of shooting I was in a burning car.”
Okay, that was a little SPOILER-Y, but keep in mind, that scene could have been cut and the show was not shot in sequence, so the burning car could come in the first episode or the last.
Montgomery also revealed that bad guy Billy gets some redemption.
‘Stranger Things 3’ will be available in its entirety on July 4, 2019.
