‘Stranger Things’ spills some se­crets

Com­pan­ion vol­ume of­fers hints to Sea­son 3

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - LIFE - Kelly Lawler

Net­flix has a small treat for “Stranger Things” fans this Hal­loween.

Sure, a big­ger treat would be a whole new sea­son of the hit su­per­nat­u­ral se­ries, but while fans wait for Sea­son 3 to ar­rive, they can tide them­selves over with “Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Up­side Down” (Del Rey, 223 pp.), the of­fi­cial com­pan­ion book to the Net­flix se­ries.

Part cof­fee ta­ble book and part be­hind-the-scenes nar­ra­tive, “Worlds” melds beau­ti­ful art­work from the se­ries with de­tails about the pro­duc­tion that are al­most as mag­i­cal as the show it­self. We picked out five of the most in­ter­est­ing tid­bits, plus some ex­cit­ing new hints about what’s to come in Sea­son 3.

The orig­i­nal ti­tle for the se­ries was ‘Mon­tauk’

Down that have sprouted all over Hawkins, the spores in the air are dan­de­lion seeds.
