'Stranger Things' Season 3 Drops Trailer; Features Monsters, Fourth Of July Celebration, Summer Fun & More
Netflix made sure that fans will not get disappointed when it dropped the Stranger Things Season 3 trailer. The streaming service released a nearly three-minute sneak peek that is packed with pop culture references and hints on what to expect in the upcoming season.
The 80s vibe is still very much in the third installment of Netflix's sci-fi horror TV series even though Mike (Finn Wolfhard) said they are not kids anymore. The trailer kicks off with Mötley Crüe's 1985 song, "Home Sweet Home," as the gang surprising Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) after he returns home from a summer camp.
Monsters are still present in the upcoming season as a creepy creature is seen terrorizing a hospital towards the end of the teaser. Producer Shawn Levy earlier hinted that kids will be dealing with new forces of evil this season.
The new villain in Season 3 could be something close to a monster in Dungeons and Dragons or something to do with rats. Clearly, the small filthy mammals will be playing a significant role in Season 3.
First, some rodents were seen at the bottom of Stranger Things Season 3 poster that was released on New Year's Day. Then, Netflix dropped a cryptic tweet about rats this week prior to the release of the teaser. And finally, the trailer features a hoard of rats in an abandoned warehouse.
Meanwhile, it looks like Steve (Joe Keery) will be closer than ever with the kids particularly with Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) as the two are seen goofing around at the former's workplace. However, the fun summer will be short-lived as some monsters will attack Hawkins while the locals are celebrating the fourth of July. By the looks of it, this will indeed a summer that can change everything for the kids.
Aside from Mike and Dustin, the rest of their crew-Will (Noah Schnapp), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown), and Max (Sadie Sink)-will all appear in Season 3. Winona Ryder (Joyce), David Harbour (Jim Hopper), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), and Natalia Dyer (Nancy) are also returning this season.
Stranger Things Season 3 is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on July 4. It will have eight episodes.
