The original season of Netlix’s hit sci-fi 80s homage contained eight as well, while season 2 contained nine. Production on the new season will start in April. The vast majority of the cast from the last season will be back for season 3. Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Noah Schnapp (Will), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Winona Ryder (Joyce), and David Harbour (Jim) will all be back.
