The Stranger Things Season 3 trailer is finally here and it teases a thrilling '80s summer with teenage romance, mall trips, and a new Demogorgon threat to Hawkins, Indiana. The younger teens - Eleven, Dustin, Lucas, Will, Mike (Finn Wolfhard), and Max (Sadie Sink) - build what looks like a mini satellite in the middle of a field. I mean what did you think, we were just going to sit in my basement all day?
All episodes of Stranger Things' third season drop on Netflix July 4. While the end of last season painted Eleven and Max sort of at odds over Mike, it seems that the show chose to set the exhausted idea of a love triangle aside and have made the two girls friends.
Usually, Stranger Things banks on the Halloween hype to debut a new batch of episodes. This may not be the strangest scene from the season 3 trailer, but it is pretty hilarious not to mention. "But I can only promise you that season 3 eventually goes places that are darker, and unquestionably more action-packed, than we've ever gone before", Levy said in a previous interview.
Amid shots of a carnival, mall, beach, and the Hawkins newspaper, there were also terrifying signs of the supernatural "Upside Down".
The new trailer also features glimpses of a menacing gunman, a huge, insect-like beast and several characters looking freaked out by something happening offscreen.
Yesterday, the official Stranger Things account shared a video of rats on the run with the caption "it's nearly feeding time", perhaps implying a longer trailer is on the way or something quite evil is arriving.
A major theme of the trailer is how the kids from Stranger Things are no longer kids.
The Stranger Things crew marked the momentous occasion by sharing a video on the show's official Twitter account on Tuesday (November 6).
