Netflix released the first trailer for the third season of Stranger Things, on its way to the streaming platform this Fourth of July. The main cast is all back, with David Harbour‘s Sheriff Hopper trying to raise teenager Eleven (played by Millie Bobby Brown), who is now best buds with Max (Sadie Sink). Following up on last season, Gaten Matarazzo‘s Dustin is still pals with Joe Keery‘s Steve Harrington, and everyone else looks more than a bit older. With last season’s hero Bob Newby (Sean Astin) obviously not returning, backfilling the fan favorite actors from the 1980s means the introduction to the series of newcomers Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride, Psych) and Jake Busey (Starship Troopers, Contact) taking on more than guest roles this season, as revealed in the trailer.
It’s now the Summer of 1985, but we’re back in Hawkins, so that means more bad things are coming our way from the Upside Down. More music you remember that was played to death on the radio. More fashion, big hair, and 1980s designs. New villains, new beasties. And a big new addition: The Mall and the battle at Starcourt. But we hear the pretzels aren’t even that good, so…
Take a look at this great preview for Season 3 of the next best thing since the 1980s, Stranger Things:
It’s going to be a long wait.
Stranger Things returns this Fourth of July with eight Season 3 episodes beginning with, “Suzie, Do you Copy,” only on Netflix.
