Stranger Things’ executive producer Shawn Levy recently spoke to Glamour about what to expect come Season 3.
And for fans of the show, one of the cornerstones of the previous two series will apparently be missing, and it’s about time really when you consider the extent of what’s happened in the previous two outings for the guys and girls of Hawkins, Indiana.
Levy said; “We’re going to give Will a break.”
It’s been two seasons with Will Byers suffering the worst that the Upside Down can throw at him, and Levy thinks Will has earned a break.
“We’re not going to put Will through hell for a third season in a row,” Levy continued.
“He’ll be dealing with stuff, but he won’t be at rock bottom the way we forced the amazing Noah schnapp to play.”
But, if you cast your mind back to Season 2’s closing episodes, you may recall how both Hopper and Dustin had their own struggles with the Shadow Monster, and you would probably assume that, if Will isn’t under the Monster’s spell, then one of those two might be.
Levy added, “you might assume that, but you would probably end up being wrong.
We’re [going to be] dealing with forces of evil that are new.”
It’ll be nice to see Will get a chance to join in the action as opposed to being contained by or being a part of the evil that stalks Hawkins.
While Season 3 is still little ways away, but the cast and crew will be ready to jump back into it after a successful and well-earned time on the red carpets of the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards.
