Netflix’s spooky and strange show returns for a summer to remember this July with season 3. Stranger Things makes it long awaited comeback, hopefully with more answers than questions in tow. We’ll we get justice for Bob? Will we know more about Eight? What’s in it for Eleven and Mike? And what’s in store for the whole town of Hawkins with the Upside Down still existing?
It’s a whole new territory for the kids of Hawkins, Indiana, now that they’re entering adolescence while also dealing with the ever looming presence of the Upside Down and everything that lies beyond. There’s not much that we know about the main plot of the third season, but the newly released trailer does show a few things fans can expect — summertime fun with pool hangs and galavanting through fields, not to mention a creepy abundance of rats. Check out the trailer below and make sure to tune in when Stranger Things season 3 drops on July 4, only on Netflix.
Stranger Things Season 3 TV Preview
There’s a lot that fans are expecting with this long awaited season and it seems there’s a lot that they can definitely look forward to once the full season drops this July. So what do we know so far? For starters, season 3 will not pick up from where the second season left off. There will be a time jump and the simple rationale behind it is mainly because the child actors are growing up, which in a way, also allows the story to evolve even more so.
Consisting of only eight episodes, this season will also see a more intimate take on the characters’ journey — but not without the occasional heart-stopping horror that viewers have come to love about the show. Speaking of action, much of it is said to happen at the newly built Starcourt Mall in Hawkins. We also know that the Mind Flayer will be back in what the creators and actors are dubbing as the “grossest” and most “brutal” season to date. If that’s not enough to get you all hyped up, there’s a lot of season 2 storyline leftovers that will also be addressed, which includes Kali’s (a.ka. Eight) comeback, as well as the possibility of other “numbers” entering the picture.
