Major spoilers for season 3 of Stranger Things below!
Stranger Things fans have been trying to figure out what's next for their favorite group of misfits from Hawkins, Indiana as they finished going to head-to-head with a villainous monster and their craziest foe yet. While season four of Stranger Things hasn't been confirmed just yet, fans are still super excited to see what is going to happen next and what special little secrets they still don't know about from this past season.
Thankfully, the Stranger Things writers have been giving fans exactly what they want thanks to revealing some behind the scenes secrets from the show that haven't been revealed until now. So what have they been revealing? And what fun moments did they hide in season 3? Here's everything the Stranger Things writers revealed about season 4...
Robin's last name
As a beloved Scoops Troop member and a breakout character, Robin sure got a lot of love this season for her new friendship with Steve and how much she helped out during their big mission to uncover the secret Russian codes that were being transmitted at the Starcourt Mall.
However, some fans were curious about Robin's family and background, which they only got a little bit of when she revealed to Steve why she previously hated him when they were classmates in high school. While it isn't the big background story that fans were hoping for, the writers did reveal that Robin's last name was Buckley, which they hid in a series of tweets.

A special easter egg about Sneakers
Sneakers fans might have gone back to rewatch a scene featuring some of our favorite members of the Scoops Troop as they figured out a way to get to the secret Russian base that was hidden under the mall. Fans of the '80s flick were probably surprised to see one of their favorite scenes recreated for the show, but the Stranger Things writers revealed that co-creators the Duffer Brothers often quote the film.
We would like to give a special shout-out to everyone who spotted our Sneakers easter egg in ep3. Hardly a day goes by where the Duffers don't reference this underappreciated 90s gem! https://t.co/AarQpV5EWR— Stranger Writers (@strangerwriters) July 12, 2019
A special throwback for Winona Ryder
The Stranger Things writers hinted at fans that there was a special easter egg that no one had figured out just yet, but was hidden in episode 3.

After some time, the writers gave away tons of clues of different things that it wasn't. Finally one lucky fan figured it out and mentioned that Beetlejuice's tombstone could be found in Mr. Clarke's town model.

This is likely a nod to Winona Ryder, who plays Joyce and also starred in Beetlejuice as Lydia Deetz.
The Russians might actually be The Umbrella Corporation
It's not surprising to see the Stranger Things writers add in several '80s references, especially since the show takes place in that era. But some Resident Evil fans were surprised to see that they added in a special reference to the hit video game series in the show.
The writers did give a clue to those looking for the special easter egg that it "will give you life." One lucky Twitter user noticed the special green found in the games that give players more HP as they continue on their adventure.
Episode 6. Resident Evil's medicinal green herb appears on the Russian underground facility. 😀😀 Is that it??— Breno Gonçalves (@BetterCallNicks) July 9, 2019
Resident Evil continues to be one of the most popular video game series of all-time, but it's pretty interesting that they would add a special reference to in the show since it originally came out in 1996 and not the 1980s.
