Well, if this doesn't give us an excuse to just graze on Eggo, nothing will.
There's been a Demogorgon-shaped hole in our hearts ever since we binge-watched all of the second season since it was released on Netflix in October, 2017.
Luckily for us, we're slowly getting details on what's happening in Hawkins, Indiana, for Stranger Things' third series.
WARNING: You may encounter spoilers. But luckily, you won't come across any Mind Flayers.
While the third season has been given the green light, no official release date has been given yet, but it is rumoured to be on your screens by late 2018, or early 2019.
Halloween played a key-role in the previous season of 'Stranger Things', and if they follow suit, expect to see an October release.
Again, this is all pretty fresh, so no cast members have officially been announced, but you can bet your Eggos that the old cast will return, including:
Lucas's sister Erica, played by Priah Ferguson, will be getting a larger part in the show after impressing fans with her hilarious segments during Season 2. Speaking to Yahoo, one half of the show's writers Ross Duffer said, “There will definitely be more Erica in Season 3.
He added, "That is the fun thing about the show — you discover stuff as you’re filming. We were able to integrate more of her in, but not as much you want because the story [was] already going. ‘We got to use more Erica’ — that was one of the first things we said in the writers’ room.”
There sure are! In fact Season 3 will see the introduction of Maya Thurman Hawke as Robin. Maya has previously starred in 'Little Women' and she's set to make quite the impact in Season 3 of 'Stranger Things'.
Maya is the daughter of iconic Hollywood stars Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, so there will be plenty of eyes on her when she makes her debut in Hawkins.
Shawn Levy, the producer behind the Netflix series, recently spoke to Glamour, and dished some details on the much-hyped third season.
We all know Will's had some rough time - from being tortured by a smoky monster to throwing up weird slug fellas in the sink, he hasn't had it easy. But apparently the writers are "giving him [Will] a break". This doesn't mean that Noah's character will get off easy - he'll be forced to deal "with forces of evil that are new".
The Duffer Brothers also want to further the bromance of the decade, by seeing Dustin and Steve become closer, and have an almost brotherly-like relationship. We can't wait to see them beat up demon-dogs together. N'AWH!
You'll be able to catch the show on Netflix just as you did with the first two seasons. Plus, if you wanna catch up on any of the previous instalments of 'Stranger Things', you can do it right there too!
When 'Stranger Things' creators The Duffer Brothers spoke to Vulture about how long they envisage the show lasting they revealed that they were “thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out”.
So if they stick to that aim, Season 3 is going to be the second last season and we'll hopefully be lucky enough to get Season 4 sometime in 2020!
