Netflix is currently filming Stranger Things 3 with first look set images having hit the net out of Atlanta, Georgia featuring the returning cast including Millie Bobby Brown, Sadie Sink, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, and Charlie Heaton.
The images reveal the cast to be having fun in-between filming scenes and offers a look at their 1985 attire in addition to some bicycles from the time.
While the kids appear to be having a lot of fun, and the recent teaser also seemed to foreshadow a lighter Stranger Things 3 season, executive producer and writer Shawn Levy recently let it be known the new season will be anything but lighter.
"So season 3 has a really healthy dose of poppy, bright levity and cultural fun. But I can only promise you that season 3 eventually goes places that are darker, and unquestionably more action-packed, than weâ€™ve ever gone before," Levy said in a recent interview. "It would be a mistake for anyone to think that season 3 is the summer of fun and lightness because itâ€™s a whole lot more than that."

Stranger Things 3
Netflix has yet to announce the Stranger Things 3 release date, but it is known to be delayed and returning in Summer 2019 in order to get things right.
"Itâ€™s a handcrafted show. The Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy have worked really hard, and they understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger and better than what they did last year. And so they really want to take the time to get it right," Netflixâ€™s VP of original content Cindy Holland said. "Itâ€™s going to be a fantastic season. Itâ€™s gonna be worth the wait.â€ť
The series also stars David Harbour and Winona Ryder.
