After surviving an attack from the Upside Down in 1984, Stranger Things returns with a third season for a summer that can change everything. The trailer opens with Dustin returning home from summer camp and the entire gang surprises him with a ‘Welcome Home, Dustin’ banner. It goes on with many different scenes with the characters of the show doing their own thing followed by Mike Wheeler’s voiceover, "We're not kids anymore," what did you expect? We were just going to sit in my basement and play games for the rest of our lives?"
Well, not exactly, Mike. Considering you guys also fought off monsters from a different dimension on two separate occasions using the help of a girl with psychic powers, but whatever, we all know that growing up is hard.
It looks like they're trucking right along into their teenage years this season, with amusement parks, and romances, and malls, and jobs. But, since this is Hawkins and all, there's also the small issue of the horrifying monster we see at the end of the trailer. Not to forget, with 22 Million views, it is the most watched Netflix video on YouTube by far. Take a look for yourself here:
With less than four months to go until the new season is released, Netflix is all geared up for the millions of Stranger Things fans who are most likely going to crash the website as soon as the episodes are released.
Returning of old characters and some new faces.
All of the young actors are returning for Season 3, including Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Sadie Sink (Max), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), and Noah Schnapp (Will). There’s also the teenagers Dacre Montgomery (Billy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), Natalie Dyer (Nancy), and Joe Keery (Steve). Adult actors Cara Buono (Karen), Winona Ryder (Joyce), and David Harbour (Hopper) will also return. However, we do see a new character in the trailer played by Maya Hawke who seems to be partnered with Joe Keery but, hey, who are we to make any assumptions?
