Stranger Things has been given the go-ahead for season three by Netflix. The streaming giant made the announcement via Twitter on Friday, Dec. 1, first opening things up with a poll of its followers, asking, "Should we make another season of Stranger Things?".

"I think we've clearly implied there are other numbers, and I can't imagine that the world will only ever know Eleven and Eight", Matt Duffer said.
