The third season of Netflix original series Stranger Things won't be ready until the summer of 2019. That puts significantly more time between the launch of the third season compared with the arrival of the second although according to Netflix programming executive Cindy Holland, it'll be worth the wait. During a speaking engagement at the Television Critics Association's press tour this weekend, Holland said
the Duffer Brothers and Shawn Levy (the show's creators and one of its executive producers) understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger and better than last year, she said, adding that she thinks it's going to be a fantastic season. Without revealing too much about the upcoming season, Holland did say it would feature more special effects work than previous seasons. "It's a really exciting season, just takes a little more time," she said.
