“Stranger Things” Producer Shawn Levy Confirms That Season 3 Begins Filming Today!



'Stranger Things' Producer Shawn Levy Confirms That Season 3 Begins Filming Today!

Just a few days ago it was announced via Netflix that actors Cary Elwes (Saw) and Jake Busey (“From Dusk till Dawn”) had joined the cast of “Stranger Things” season three.

Today, however, we have more exciting updates from “Stranger Things” producer Shawn Levy, who broke the news to Collider that season three has officially begun filming! And we might even get a forth season.

Producer Shawn Levy talks “Stranger Things”  Season 3:

I’m once again directing the third and fourth episodes so that I can give the Duffers a breather, and send them back into the writing cave, so that they can buff out the rest of the season. That’s why I took on these episodes in Season One, and now the three of us are just a little too superstitious to mess with what’s worked so far. The prep beyond that, it’s really a similar juggling act where the Duffers, because they always understandably want to direct the kick-off episodes, they have to juggle their limited time between writing and re-writing and prepping as directors, all at the same time.

Levy was asked if “Stranger Things” director Andre Stanton would be returning for season 3:

No, you know what? We had some schedule issues trying to figure out how to bring Andrew back, because we were beyond thrilled with him as a human being and his episodes. So the only answer I can give you today is it’s not Stanton, though we very much hope to keep him in the director club of Stranger Things as we move on to other seasons.

Will we see “Stranger Things” return for a forth season?

I mean I will say we have a good sense of stuff that happens in Season Four. Season Four is definitely happening. There’s very much the possibility of a season beyond that one, that’s currently undecided. And what I would just say is part of the chaos and fun of this particular show is that while the Duffers and the writer’s room and we producers outline the entire season, the Duffers really use the writing process to revisit, reassess and question all of their prior assumption. So even though we always start off with a good sense of the major arcs of the season. We’re always ready for shifts and surprises because if the Duffers stumble into a different or surprising inspiration while they rewrite the script, we’re going to follow that inspiration and throw out some ideas in order to embrace some new ones that are more exciting. And I have no doubt that Season 3 will be no exception.
