Considering it's one of Netflix's most successful original shows, it should come as absolutely no surprise that Stranger Things has been renewed for a third season.

While no details were given regarding its return date or what the next season is about, the Duffer Brothers did confirm that the next season will jump forward to 1985, primarily because the young cast are growing up the way children are supposed to.

Since its launch, Stranger Things has been an instant hit for its mix of '80s nostalgia and compelling storylines, not to mention its cast - which also won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Cast (Drama) last year.

Stranger Things' third season hits Netflix some time in 2018.
