Millie Bobby Brown reveals Stranger Things season 3 production details at Netflix’s FYSEE


Millie Bobby Brown may not have Eleven’s epic powers, but she can find other ways to shake the world up by revealing new info about the third season.

Netflix held its second annual FYSEE event at Hollywood’s Raleigh Studios on Saturday. Stranger Things was obviously on the roster for the five-week showcase. The event reunited the show’s leads Millie Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp, as well as the director Shawn Levy and casting director Carmen Cuba. All were on deck to reveal details on what we can look forward to in the highly anticipated third season of Stranger Things.

Production on the season began last month and Brown said that the experience has been “amazing and wonderful” since. In the season 2 finale, fans were left with Eleven finally feeling like she was able to be her own person and not an experiment.

“It’s a beautiful story-line for Eleven this season… It’s really a coming of age for her and understanding what being a normal teenage girl is,” Brown said. “The Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy, and Netflix really know how to grow with the characters so it’s very good. They know how to write to us and how we’re growing and our voices are changing and our mindsets are changing and we are maturing every day.”

All of the leads of the show are expected to return. Plus Brown has an idea who should play her long-lost older brother (if there ever is one). “I have already made a storyline,” she added. “Leo, if you want to be in Stranger Things, here’s the contract.”

The upcoming season already has its fair share of celebrity appearances. Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride) and Jake Busey (From Dusk Till Dawn) are both joining the cast. Maya Hawke, daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, is also joing the crew and her character is set to uncover a dark secret.

“What’s great about her is, just like these kids and the other ones, is that she’s just an individual. There’s not another human on this earth like Maya Hawke,” Cuba said of the casting process.

Though Schnapp and Brown were the only cast members to turn up, they revealed just enough to have us on the edge of our seats for the return.

“Season 1, I feel like, was more playful. Season 2 was a lot darker. And then Season 3 does really well blending them together, and that’s what I love about it,” Schnapp added.
