Stranger Things is heading back into production this month, and details on Season 3 are already giving us nostalgia for Season 2.
At PaleyFest in Los Angeles on March 25, executive producer Shawn Levy told The Hollywood Reporter that the most important storyline would thankfully make a return:
We’ll definitely get to see some more of Steve Harrington in Season 3, and I’ll just say we won’t be abandoning the Dad Steve magic. I don’t want to say much more, but I literally feel that we were walking along and we stumbled onto a gold mine with Dad Steve.
“Dad Steve magic” is one way of putting it. But perhaps the real magic is the daddiness of the whole season — at least if you ask David Harbour, the man behind Sheriff Hopper.’
But the real question remains: How much more dad dancing will there be in Season 3?
Levy went on to reveal that the season will begin a year after where we last left the Hawkins group. And sure enough, the Mileven ship will still be sailing:
Mike and Eleven and are going strong, so that’s a relationship that continues, and same with Mad Max and Lucas. But again, they’re like 13- or 14-year-old kids, so what does romance mean at that stage of life? It can never be simple and stable relationships and there’s fun to that instability.
So presumably, that means that we can expect some serious hand-holding, right?
