The Trailer For Stranger Things Season 3 Is Here

The trailer for the forthcoming third season of hit Netflix series Stranger Things has dropped, ahead of its release to the streaming platform this summer. And it looks like we're in for another binge-watch of nightmarish monsters and fierce '80s fashions.

The trailer was posted to Twitter with the mysterious caption: "One summer can change everything."

Set to The Who's 'Baba O'Riley', the trailer shows that our beloved gang are 'not kids anymore', and are instead facing the teenage wasteland that follows their already troubled childhood.

But, by the looks of things, they're still tackling whatever comes their way together. It seems as though Eleven and Max have even become close pals as they dance around a bedroom listening to music together.

Better still, is that a kiss between Mike and Eleven we see towards the end?

Steve, meanwhile, is busy working at the mall, while Joyce still looks like she's about to wet herself - and probably rightfully so, given what they've all had to put up with over the past two series.

We already know the episode titles for the new series, which are: Suzie, Do You Copy?; The Mall Rats; The Case of the Missing Lifeguard; The Sauna Test; The Source; The Birthday; The Bite; and The Battle of Starcourt.

While we don't have many specific details about the upcoming season, other than that it's set in 1985, David Harbour - who plays Police Chief Jim Hopper - told us last year that the new series will see a great deal of experimentation and risk-taking.

Speaking to Deadline, he said: "If you're a real fan of Stranger Things and you really want to know, I would go look at the great films that were released in '85 - of which there were many - and just go down that list and think of the possibilities that we could be going with.

"I think it is a specific season to 1985, and so you'll see references to that.

"We're experimenting a lot this season, and we're taking risks, and I hope that they pay off, but they are risks. We're going into territories we've never been to before, and it's exciting."

Netflix's programming executive, Cindy Holland, has also said the team behind the show have been aiming 'bigger and better'.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association tour in Beverley Hills, she said: "The Duffer Brothers and Shawn Levy, they understand the stakes are high.

"They want to deliver something bigger and better than last year. I think it's going to be a fantastic season. It will be worth the wait.

"It's a really exciting season, just takes a little more time."

Looks like we're in for a totally tubular ride, kids.


"School is out, pool is open," the season three tagline reads.

"Welcome to summer of '85 in Hawkins."

The new series is due to land on Netflix on 4 July.
