Netflix Officially Orders 3rd Season of Stranger Things

Not really surprising, but word came down this morning that streaming service giant Netflix has indeed officially ordered a third season of perennial favorite Stranger Things. Very rarely does a show permeate the social consciousness quite like it has after two seasons; fans are many and vocal.

Set in the 1980s, the coming-of-age sci-fi horror drama shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.  Stranger Things received 18 Emmy nominations and won five during the 2017 awards show.

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

 Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

 Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
