Interviews: Producer Shawn Levy talks the new villain in Season 3 of Stranger Things, and Greg Nicotero cried during the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead?
Uh oh! A new villain will be introduced in Season 3 of Stranger Things! Fans of the Netflix hit know that Will (Noah Schnapp), one of the leads of the series, has been put through hell and back as the storylines of season 1 and 2 followed his demise. This time around, a new evil force will affect Hawkins, Indiana – the city where Stranger Things is set. Levy mentions:
“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.”
Cue the waterworks: EW revealed in an interview with Greg Nicotero, the executive producer of The Walking Dead, that Nicotero cried during the mid-season premiere of TWD! The mid-season premiere of the series will be airing on February 25th and will follow Carl’s succumb to his walker bite and its effect on the crew. Are you all ready?
