Stranger Thingsseason 3 is still several months away — some reports say a 2019 release date is likely — but luckily for fans, Netflix is partnering with Penguin Random House to release two books about the show this fall, with more to come next year.
According to Deadline , one of the books due in 2018 is Stranger Things: World Turned Upside Down: The Official Behind-the-Scenes Companion, which will take an in-depth look at the sci-fi show. The second, as-yet-untitled book will offer “advice, wisdom, and warnings from the Stranger Things world,” according to Penguin Random House.
Those will be followed next spring by a prequel novel written by author Gwenda Bond. The novel reportedly will focus on Eleven’s mother, Terry Ives, as well as the CIA’s MKUltra mind control program, which saw Ives subjected to brutal experiments on the show.
The books are good news for fans who can’t get enough of the show, especially since there may only be two or three seasons left. “I think, you know, four to five seasons is likely where we’ll end up, but who knows?” Stranger Things co-creator Ross Duffer told E! News . “I mean, none of this [is] official, and we know where we want to go. We’re trying to figure out still how long it’ll take to get there, so we’ll see.” His brother, Matt Duffer, added, “It’s hard, like four seems short, five seems long. So, I don’t know what to do.”
Netflix has not yet announced a premiere date for Stranger Things season 3.
