Elwes appeared on the USA show Psych a few times, but that's a few years back.

Guess Netflix won't be getting any of my dough until Summer 2019 then.

Joking aside, taking their time to do it right is always a good thing.

With the absolute insane amount of movies and TV shows being released constantly, maybe a year off for this show isn’t a bad thing? I know it’s one of the more popular Netflix shows, but it might be good not to rush it for October.

The kids will graduate high school in season 4 at this rate.

Which is always the biggest issue with a young cast or young actors. Bran anyone?

I'd much rather have them take the time to make the show right, lest we get another Season 2 Episode 7 debacle. No big deal with a delay.

But Stranger Things is such a HALLOWEEN time show... maybe they should hold off until October 2019? Or late September?

I think they already said season 3 will have some sort of time jump.

Yes S02E07 was bad, but it had been cut into 2-3 episodes, I donít think it would have been as bad.

So Hawkins is getting a mall? That's awesome. More 80s nostalgia.

Disagree. Even if had time to feel more organic, story wise, it still felt completely out of place.
Hawkins feels like a place you lived or visited in the 80s. The Chicago of episode 7 felt like it could come from a CSI episode.
Not to mention the "gang" was silly. They wear colorful masks to hide their identities, but otherwise wear the same clothes and hairstyles that would easily give them away. Mohawk guy for example, or the big dude with the long dreads coming out of his neck. They looked more like an 80s themed MTV costume party, then real life people pulling crimes in 1983. Sid Vicious and Cyndi Lauper.

Good news, Stranger Things fans: A brand-new origin story is coming your way.

EW can exclusively reveal some of the first details about Suspicious Minds, the first official Stranger Things novel, written by YA author Gwenda Bond (Fallout, Double Down). The book is part of a new initiative between Netflix and Del Rey, an imprint of Penguin Random House, which will flesh out a collection of characters from the beloved series and dig deeper into its mythology.

Suspicious Minds is set before the events of Stranger Things. It’s a prequel novel, and it’ll follow Eleven’s mother and her time as a test subject in the MKUltra program, which the series has only begun to scratch the surface on.

Intel on exactly what to expect is still sparse, but you can check out the first chapter of Suspicious Minds exclusively below, as well as the official cover. And as the book jacket indicates, there’s at least one major character from the Stranger Things series we can expect to figure into the novel prominently.

Suspicious Minds will publish Feb. 5, 2019, and is available for pre-order. (And if you can’t wait until 2019, get your Stranger Things fix with this special companion book, publishing Oct. 30.)

Excerpt from Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds, by Gwenda Bond: https://ew.com/books/2018/09/27/stra...e=facebook.com

Looks like a paperback horror novel from the 80s.

So now they'll have seen Goonies and should be getting around to seeing Back To The Future.

Great news...thanks for that.

FWIW, I thought S1 was just OK, but S2 really hit it out of the ballpark for me.

Looks good. Is that Cary Elwes? Glad to see he's still alive.
