When is Season 3 coming out?
Just before the clock struck midnight on the last night of 2018, Netflix sent fans into the new year with the exciting news that Stranger Things 3 will (finally!) return on July 4, 2019.
Along with the release date, they shared the official poster of the forthcoming season, featuring the foreboding phrase, “One summer can change everything,” and a graphic of the young cast watching fireworks explode over what looks like a local fair. This is Stranger Things, though, and of course Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven looks terrified, even as she holds her sweetheart Mike’s hand, as some sort of darkness continues to encroach on their quaint Indiana town.
The season comes nearly two years after Stranger Things 2, but the long wait will likely be worth it, as Netflix’s VP of original content Cindy Holland told Deadline that “more special effects” and a higher production value contributed to the lengthy gap between seasons.
