David Harbour admits that the show takes "a long time" to do.
The success of Netflix original series 'Stranger Things' is undeniable. Creators Ross and Matt Duffer, otherwise known as The Duffer Brothers, have brought to the small screen one of the most infectious and addictive shows of the modern day. With twists around every corner, references to the 80s and some of the best acting from young actors anyone has ever seen, the compelling show has found millions of fans all around the globe.
David Harbour will return to the role of Hopper in 'Stranger Things' S3
Following the series' second season which debuted on Netflix a little earlier this year, talk has of course turned to what we should expect from the confirmed third outing, and when exactly that season will premiere. Though some thought it would arrive in 2018, it now looks as if a busy schedule will push it back until some point in 2019.
Speaking with Variety, actor David Harbour who plays Hopper in the show teased: "I mean, one of the things that’s annoying for fans is that it takes us a long time to do them. Like, you probably won’t get [Season 3] until sometime in 2019. But also part of the thing is, like any good thing, they need time. And those guys work so hard. I mean, they just sit in their apartment and write for 12, 14 hours a day."
Harbour will be having a busy 2019 if his words turn out to be true, as the planned R-rated 'Hellboy' reboot, in which he plays the titular role, is also set for release in January of that year. An actor whose star is consistently on the rise, it's not only going to be interesting to see him in action in these productions, but to see just how his career progresses from this moment.
'Stranger Things' seasons 1-2 are available now in full on Netflix. We'll bring you more news on season 3 as and when we get it.
