Stranger Things Duo Tease Eleven’s “Beautiful Storyline” Ahead Of Season 3


The cameras, they are a-rolling on the set of Stranger Things season 3. And don’t we know all about it.

Earlier this month, for instance, we brought you a batch of set photos fresh from the streets of Hawkins (see below), which showed the likes of Nancy (Natalia Dyer), Hopper (David Harbour) and Joyce (Winona Ryder) moseying about their local town.

So far, so familiar. But when Variety (h/t Bloody Disgusting) caught up with Millie Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp at a recent Netflix event, the Stranger Things duo took a moment to big up Eleven’s “beautiful storyline” ahead of the show’s return next year.

First up, Schnapp pinpointed the ways in which season 3 finds common ground between the first two installments – in terms of tone, at least…

Season 1, I feel like, was more playful. Season 2 was a lot darker. And then Season 3 does really well blending them together, and that’s what I love about it.

Bouncing off that, Millie Bobby Brown, who is about to make the leap into blockbuster territory with Godzilla: King of the Monsters, spoke more about the coming-of-age drama that awaits her on-screen oddity, Eleven.

It’s a beautiful storyline for Eleven this season. It’s really a coming of age for her and understanding what being a normal teenage girl is.

At least so far, the Stranger Things family has expanded to include the likes of Cary Elwes (Princess Bride, Saw) as Mayor Kline, Jake Busey (Starship Troopers) as Bruce, Maya Thurman-Hawke as an alternative girl bored with her mundane day job and, finally, Francesca Reale as Heather, a popular lifeguard at the Hawkins Community Pool.

The latter is supposedly thrust into the midst of a “dark mystery” during Stranger Things season 3, though we’ll have to wait for another few months before Netflix is ready to peel back the curtain on its latest spell-binding adventure.
