'Stranger Things' Season 3 Episode Count Revealed

'Stranger Things' Season 3 Episode Count Revealed
From Slashfilm - February 9, 2018

Itll be a while before we seeStranger Things season 3. But for now, we have a definitive answer on how many episodes the new season will have. This might be good news or bad news, depending on your opinion. If you thought the episode count onStranger Things 2 was too long, youre in luck! If you wanted more, well, we have some bad news for you below.

Stranger Things season 1 had a healthy eight episode run. The show was such a hit, however, that Netflix gave in and letStranger Things 2 add one more episode for a total of nine. It seemsStranger Things creators the Duffer Brothers have decided that, like Icarus, they flew too close to the sun. As a result,Stranger Things season 3 will go back to the eight episode count, as confirmed by TV Line.

Personally speaking, I think this is a good move.Stranger Things 2 felt slightly overlong with 9 episodes, especially since it gave us that terrible spin-off episode where Eleven skips town and hangs out with the cast ofClass of Nuke Em High.

Netflix shows in general have a length problem. The numerous Netflix/Marvel originals are always way too long, far overstaying their welcome with 12 over-stretched episodes. More Netflix shows should learn fromStranger Things example and adopt an 8 episode model.
