Stranger Things gang looking worriedly at something.

‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Will Have John Carpenter Influences!

It looks like Stranger Things season 3 is shaping up to be the most ambitious and darkest season yet! Now, each season seems to be set in a different year of the ‘80s with specific references to works from iconic directors and writers of that decade. The first season has major nods to Stephen King movies and novels while season 2 harkens back to Spielberg’s movies. Season 3 is expected to take place in 1985 with influences from classic John Carpenter movies. Carpenter, a famous director and screenwriter, is known for his movies such as The Fog and Halloween.

We Got This Covered reported on Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy and what he’s saying about the upcoming season and how it’s the most ambitious one yet! “There will also be very much the ghost of John Carpenter and other ‘80s horror directors here,” explains Levy. He talked about how the second season has become more cinematic and much more character-focused than the first and how that evolution will continue in the third while having more action.
