Stranger Things Season 3

American web television series

It’s the fall of 1984, about a year after Will Byers was found, and he has been plagued by seeing visions of the Upside Down featuring a more dangerous monster. That leads the boy to see a suspiciously friendly new doctor, with the possibility that Will’s visions are the result of suffering from PTSD. Nancy deals with survivor’s remorse over the death of best friend Barb. Meanwhile, a new sinister entity threatens the Hawkins residents who survived the year-earlier events. New to the town is tomboy Max, who befriends the boys and attracts the romantic interests of Dustin and Lucas.

Netflix’s Stranger Things season three was a dead cert even before the second season dropped to widespread hysteria in October 2017, and the company made it official late in 2017.

When is Stranger Things 3 released on Netflix?

Netflix confirmed at the start of 2019 that the new third season would be released on 4th July 2019 – Independence Day in the USA.
David Harbour (Chief Jim Hopper) had already indicated that season three probably wouldn’t arrive until 2019. Netflix’s vice president of original programming Cindy Holland then confirmed that season three would not be released until summer 2019, saying however that the delay will be “worth the wait”.
“[Creators] The Duffer Brothers and [producer] Shawn Levy, they understand the stakes are high,” she said. “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.”
On 10 November 2018, David Harbour confirmed that he had finished filming – and that he was looking forward to shaving off his moustache.
The summer 2019 release ties in with the show’s initial ‘mall teaser’, which first hinted at a summer release.
In September 2018, executive producer and director Shawn Levy said during the Emmys that “cinematically, it’s our biggest season yet”, which perhaps goes some way to explain the additional time required to film season three.

Is there a trailer?

YES. Netflix unveiled the first full trailer for Stranger Things’ summery season three on 20th March. Set to The Who’s Baba O’Reilly, it’s clear the Stranger Things kids are starting to grow up – but the terrors of the Upside Down haven’t gone away…

A couple of months later, Netflix released another full-length trailer that revealed the return of season two’s monstrous Mind Flayer, who now appears to be possessing Dacre Montgomery’s character Billy.

Netflix had previously released a short teaser in the form of an ad for a new mall in Hawkins, which features ice cream vendors Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) and newcomer Robin (Maya Thurman-Hawke).

And on 20th May, we got our first look at a full scene from the series, in a promo entitled “Summer in Hawkins”. It sees Billy – now a lifeguard at the local pool – and Mrs Wheeler having a flirt. Check it out below.

Who is in the cast?
The good news is that all of the original cast are on board for the new episodes. That means: Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven, Finn Wolfhard’s Mike, Winona Ryder’s Joyce, Noah Schnapp’s Will, Caleb Mclaughlin’s Lucas, Gaten Matarazzo’s Dustin, Natalia Dyer’s Nancy, Charlie Heaton’s Jonathan and fan favourite Joe Keery (Steve) are all set to return.
