Call 1985 the summer of love ... the cast will be 15.. malls are booming. Ollie North is selling farms for hostages .. and demagorgans are about to run wild again in Sheriff Hopper’s town..
Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) talked to US Weekly about when exactly the next season will be set. “I don’t know much about it because we get the scripts as we go along,” he said at the premiere of his new film Dog Days. “But yeah, it’s set in 1985, in the summer. It’s the summer of love — that’s all I can say, really.”
Initial rumors had the third season playing the Fourth of July angle ... which could truly bring in lots of amazing political feel for the show, keeping the angle of government officials doing wrong in a small town..
We will also meet Bruce, a sleazy-sounding journalist played by Jake Busey, son of Gary. “If you think about the way culture has changed, life was a lot different in the ‘80s,” he told Bloody Disgusting. “This is a character who is fully living in that time period. He doesn’t mind making fun of women and children. He doesn’t mind poking fun at someone else’s expense, that type of thing. He’s just a crass newsman.”
The most recent reveal came with a humorous fake mall commercial with Steve Harrington serving ice cream.. but the fun may stop at that point..
