In an interview with Glamour, Stranger Things producer, Shawn Levy, has offered up both juicy plot details and the number of episodes to expect for the third season of the hyped Netflix show.

Much like season one and season two - which each respectively had eight and nine episodes  - the third season will follow suit and will ultimately be dictated by how much story the creative team wants to pack in.

As for what we can specifically expect from the Duffer Brothers and co., Levy says, "We're going to give Will a break. We’re not going to put Will through hell for a third season in a row. He’ll be dealing with stuff, but he won’t be at rock bottom the way we forced the amazing Noah Schnapp to play," while also adding, "we're [going to be] dealing with forces of evil that are new."

For anyone who has seen season two, you witnessed the unexpected connection between Steve and Dustin. According to Levy, this trend will continue, saying, "In season two, it was all very cute and there was a funny factor to it because it was unexpected, but now that it is expected, I want to see them connect more and be more familiar with each other," he says. "I want them to have a connection like they’ve really had a connection for a year—like they’re brothers."

Levy points to aspects like Dustin not having siblings or a father as a major reason why Steve will be so important to him.

He then goes on to insinuate that we may also expect a forbidden romance between the mullet-clad, Billy, and Mike's mother, Mrs. Wheeler.

"There was clearly a connection there," Levy says. "Karen has some unhappiness that is brewing. I think that makes her vulnerable to all kinds of things in season three.”

Stay tuned for more Stranger Things information as it becomes available, and head on over to Glamour for the full interview.
