Ring in the New Year with the Stranger Things 3 as Netflix announces the premiere date with July 4, 2019.
“1985 will never be the same,” the video description teases.
A new poster has also been released which teases, “One Summer can change everything.”
Stranger Things 3 stars David Harbour as Jim Hopper, Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, Joe Keery as Steve Harrington and Noah Schnapp as Will Byers.
The series is created by brothers Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, with Shawn Levy as executive producer.
“So season 3 has a really healthy dose of poppy, bright levity and cultural fun. But I can only promise you that season 3 eventually goes places that are darker, and unquestionably more action-packed, than we’ve ever gone before,” Levy said in a previous interview. “It would be a mistake for anyone to think that season 3 is the summer of fun and lightness because it’s a whole lot more than that.”
Levy also said, “We’re not going to put Will through hell for a third season in a row. He’ll be dealing with stuff, but he won’t be at rock bottom the way we forced the amazing Noah Schnapp to play… We’re [going to be] dealing with forces of evil that are new.”
