Details are starting to come in about Stranger Things 2 and The Duffer Brothers tease a weirder season ahead that will also embrace the undeniable fact that the cast is growing up so fast.

What’s the first thing you do after binge-watching Stranger Things 2? If you’re like me, you start thinking about what season 3 is going to be like. While fans will have to wait another year or so until the new episodes are released on Netflix, the Duffer Brothers have teased fans with a few details about what to expect from Stranger Things 3.

In an interview with IndieWire, Matt and Ross Duffer said season 3 won’t be larger in scale after the second season was pretty grand, but it will result in our characters going on another journey. It will be more of an intimate character-focused journey, but they promise it’s going to be a fun watch.

Now, they can’t specify what that journey will be or which characters will be under the most scrutiny and they didn’t get to go into detail about which 80s movies they will draw inspiration from, but the Duffer Brothers did say the maturing cast will be something they have to accept. The cast is getting older and growing up in front of our eyes and teenage years are a pretty important journey so this adolescence will be a central theme in Stranger Things 3.

"“Adolescence is a very dramatic part of your life, and drama is good, said Matt Duffer! So I think it’s good it forces the show to evolve,”"

With Mike and Eleven hopefully spending a lot of time together on the screen instead of being in two separate worlds (almost quite literally) their relationship should be explored more as both characters are growing up and maybe there will be another school dance they go to together. Maybe they’ll use terms like boyfriend and girlfriend to describe each other. Maybe Lucas and Max are still an item too? And maybe Dustin and Will find a girlfriend?

No matter how they choose to go, teenage years are rife with potential storylines and sources for character development, so the Duffer Brothers should have a fun time of their own as they flesh out all the ideas running through their head to produce another eight or nine episodes that fans will binge-watch in one day.
