Streaming service Netflix has confirmed a third run of hit horror series 'Stranger Things' is already in the making.

The announcement, posted on Twitter, comes weeks after the show dropped its hotly anticipated second season, bringing a darker and gorier level to the Hawkins-based drama.

After inviting followers to vote on whether they wanted to see a third instalment, Netflix's US and Ireland branch tweeted: "FOR THE LOVE OF STEVE, YES. Hold on to your nail bats, Season 3 is officially happening."

The post referenced fan favourite character Steve Harrington, who won viewers' hearts with his impressive 1980s hairstyle and fearless bravery in keeping his young friends safe from the gruesome man-eating "demidogs".

According to Netflix, the upcoming series will see a return of all key characters.

This includes the return of Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, David Harbour as police chief Jim Hopper, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler and Millie Bobby Brown, as the mysteriously powerful child Eleven.
