Netflix’s has released the first official trailer for the third season of the Emmy award-winning show Stranger Things due out on July 4.
While season two took place around Halloween in 1984, season three sees a time jump to the summer of ’85.
Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Will (Noah Schnapp) and Sadie Sink (Max) return and seem to have moved on after escaping the Upside Down, the dark dimension where the monsters like the Demogorgon and mind flayer, named after “Dungeons and Dragons” creatures, from the first two seasons came from.
However, the gang is never far from danger. The trailer gives fans a glimpse that Will is likely still dealing with some unresolved issues from his connection to the Upside Down, and it offers a taste of the new monster the unlikely crew will have to face. Not to mention, the looming threat of puberty and growing up.
Netflix’s “Stranger Things” has become a cultural phenomenon and a critical success. The series has had 30 Emmy nominations and won six, including outstanding casting for a drama series and outstanding sound editing.
