Hold your breath and grab your nearest box of eggos. Netflix has dropped the trailer for Season 3 of Stranger Things (finally!) and this season looks even more exciting than the second. Featuring the return of all the actors from the previous season, including Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matazarro, Caleb MacLaughlin, Charlie Heaton, Sadie Sink, and Dacre Montgomery. A new addition to the cast is actress Maya Hawke, who made her screen debut in the BBC 2017 adaptation of Little Women. She will be playing a new character who works at the town’s mall, which looks to be a centerpiece for the season.

Highlights from the trailer include the characters dealing with something more horrible than any demogorgon: puberty! Yes, it seems this season will be about growing from kids into teenagers in this season and dealing with the pressures of growing into adulthood. The kids, from Eleven to Mike to Max, all looking to be handling these confusions with appropriate teenage angst and it looks to add even more drama to the circle of friends. Of course, not all threats are grounded in reality, and besides the themes of maturity, the monsters are coming back in full force as well. Glimpses of a terrifying new beast are seen near the end of the trailer, a grisly thing pulsating with tentacles and teeth. Not to mention, the whole thing is set to the chaos of July 4th, with images of fireworks and celebrations littered throughout the trailer.
We look forward to seeing the continued adventures of the Stranger Things crew this summer. The new season drops on July 4th and should prove for a binge-worthy time.
