Just as folks were preparing to ring in the new year, Netflix dropped the release date for season three of Stranger Things. We’ll be able to rejoin Mike, Eleven, Steve, Hopper, and the rest of the Hawkins gang on July 4, 2019. The teaser above contains some cryptic phrases — e.g., “When blue and yellow meet in the west” — that will no doubt be analyzed to death by the nerdwebz.
Some other season three tidbits: season three won’t put Will Byers through the ringer yet again; David Harbour (Hopper) has said the series is aiming for four or five seasons; producer Shawn Levy described season three as “cinematically… our biggest season yet”; Cary Elwes and Jake Busey have joined the cast as the “slick and sleazy” mayor of Hawkins and a journalist for the local newspaper, respectively; and there’ll be more of Lucas’ nosy little sister, Erica.
