Why Did Stranger Things’ Sean Astin Have to Leave the Set of Season 3 for a Broadway Comeback?

The reason that Stranger Things star Sean Astin had to leave the set of season three is because he was chosen for a Broadway production. Sean Astin is going to be starring in the Broadway production, “His Dark Materials,” a play based on the novels by Phillip Pullman.
The book is based on a series of novels written by Pullman. The books are set between two parallel universes: one in which humans can only see colors; and another in which humans see shapes. The themes presented in the books deal with questions of faith, love, hope, and fear.
Sean Astin plays the lead character Lyra Belacqua who has been “deceived by her parents after she discovers an otherworldly item” (Pullman).
The other main character in the story is Will Parry who is an ordinary boy. He meets Lissa, a girl of no religious beliefs, who becomes the closest person to him because she comes from a family of believers.
As to when the play will be made available for viewing, it’s hard to say for sure. Possibly soon though. The presale period has already begun for those wanting to get tickets now. The play is set to open on March 30th at the Broadhurst Theater on Broadway.
