It's a while yet before we return to Hawkins for the third season of Stranger Things but at long last, we have got some plot details telling us what we can expect.

The cast and the creative team behind the show gathered in the Dolby Theatre on Sunday to discuss the upcoming series where executive producer Shawn Levy confirmed that the third season would once more have a time jump of one year. Well, almost a full year - it will take place in the summer of 1985.

Those of you rooting for Mike and Eleven will be happy to hear that they are still together and so are Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink).

"Mike and Eleven and are going strong, so that's a relationship that continues, and same with Mad Max and Lucas. But Again, they're like 13 or 14-year-old kids, so what does romance mean at that stage of life? It can never be simple and stable relationships and there's fun to that instability," Levy told The Hollywood Reporter.

It seems the showrunners took notice of how popular Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) proved with fans in the second season, particularly with his father-like influence on Dustin, with Levy promising he will also have a prominent role in season three.

"We'll definitely get to see some more of Steve Harrington in season three, and I'll just say we won't be abandoning the Dad Steve magic. I don't want to say much more, but I literally feel that we were walking along and we stumbled onto a gold mine with Dad Steve," he said.

The eighties pop culture references will be abundant once more too, and this time round Back to the Future will be referenced as it hit cinemas in 1985.

Levy also responded to the recent allegations that the the shows' creators, the Duffer brothers, had "verbally abuse[d] multiple women" on set.

The pair have since apologised and said that "due to the high-stress nature of production, tempers occasionally get frayed", but added that the allegations sought to "mischaracterise" their behaviour. Netflix also investigated and "found no wrongdoing".

Levy said: "We were genuinely upset. And we were surprised to hear that anyone felt uncomfortable on set.

"I want to be really clear that nobody has been targeting in any way on the basis of race or gender, we all cherish the family that we've created onscreen and cherished equally the family that we created on set and we're going to remain committed to the well-being of that."

Season three of Stranger Things will begin filming in April, so hopefully we will have it on Netflix by the end of this year.
