  • If you've already binge-watched the second season of 'Stranger Things' -- twice --

  • then chances are you're probably anxiously awaiting news of what season three

  • will bring to the small town of Hawkins and its inhabitants --

  • of both the human and demogorgon variety.  

  • Luckily, the cast and producers of the Netflix smash gathered at the

  • Dolby Theatre for Sunday's PaleyFest panel to discuss the show and provide some answers.

  • But first, on the red carpet, executive producer Shawn Levy revealed that the

  • third season would take place one year after the second season,

  • during the summer of 1985. He also answered some big relationship questions,

  • revealing that Millie Bobbie Brown's Eleven and Finn Wolfhard's Mike will be a

  • couple at the beginning of the season, and so will Lucas,

  • who is played by Caleb McLaughlin and Max, portrayed by Sadie Sink.

  • None of the cast had gotten the script yet, so Brown actually

  • learned that she would be in a relationship on the carpet.

  • According to Levy: "Mike and Eleven and are going strong, so that's a

  • relationship that continues, and same with Mad Max and Lucas.

  • But Again, they're like 13 or 14-year-old kids, so what does romance

  • mean at that stage of life? It can never be simple

  • and stable relationships and there's fun to that instability.”

  • And for all you Steve Harrington superfans (a.k.a. everybody) Levy also

  • revealed that Joe Keery's character will have a bigger role next season, teasing:

  • "...I'll just say we won't be abandoning the Dad Steve magic.

  • I don't want to say much more, but I literally feel that we were

  • walking along and we stumbled onto a gold mine with Dad Steve.”

  • Oh, and get your flux capacitor ready, because during the panel itself,

  • it was revealed that a pop culture reference in the season will be...the classic 1985 film 'Back to the Future.'

  • My god! Do you know what this means?”

  • Also at the panel, the cast discussed their on-set bonding and the most

  • challenging aspects of the series. Brown pointed out that season two was

  • different from the first because there was "double the security" and fans

  • would camp out outside where the cast was shooting. But she added that it

  • was easier to act because she had a firmer grasp on her character:

  • "With season two I had the freedom to say, 'I think Eleven would do that.'"

  • David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper, revealed that in season two,

  • he came to feel about Brown the way he thought about a daughter.

  • "I don't have a child. All of my experiences of love have either been romantic,

  • or my parents, or a dog," he mused, prompting laughs.

  • He said that through his character he discovered

  • "a love that was human but pure, like you would take a bullet for someone."

  • Brown added that the most challenging scenes were her were the ones where

  • she had to get mad at Hopper. "Those scenes were so raw and real,”

  • she said. "...We are like father and daughter."

  • Renewed for a third season at Netflix, the new season comes with large

  • salary increases for its ensemble cast and recruited two new

  • recurring characters -- Lucas's sister Erica, played by Priah Ferguson

  • and Robin, played by Maya Thurman-Hawke, who will take on the role of

  • a young woman who is bored at her job until she learns more

  • about Hawkins' dark secrets. A release date for the new season has not been announced.

  • Earlier this March, a former crew member posted allegations on Instagram

  • that the Duffer brothers had "verbally abused multiple women" on set.

  • In response, the Duffer brothers apologized, and Netflix said that it would

  • investigate the allegations. Levy addressed the claims on the red carpet:

  • "We were genuinely upset. And we were surprised to hear that anyone

  • felt uncomfortable on set. I want to be really clear that nobody has been

  • targeting in any way on the basis of race or gender, we all cherish

  • the family that we've created onscreen and cherished equally the family that we

  • created on set and we're going to remain committed to the well-being of that.”

  • So, how excited are you for season three?

  • What other '80s pop culture touchstones are you hoping to find,

  • and which characters are you dying to see spotlighted?

  • Let us know in the comments.
