It’s been nearly two years since we last saw the kids from Hawkins, Indiana. Just in time for the season 3 premier, Netflix has dropped the final trailer for season 3 of “Stranger Things.”
The trailer opens with an ominous voice – presumably Billy’s (Dacre Montgomery) – warning, “You let us in. And now you are going to have to let us stay.”
“Stranger Things” gained instantaneous popularity on Netflix, largely due to its callback to cinema classics from the 1980s. The show – which takes place in the 80s – has referenced classics such as “Ghostbusters,” “The Goonies,” “Gremlins,” and “E.T. The Extra Terrestrial,” among many others.
Returning to Hawkins
At the end of season 2 of “Stranger Things,” life seemed to have improved for the residents of Hawkins. The recently returned Will (Noah Schnapp) had been released of his connection to the Mind Flayer, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) had closed the portal to the Upside Down, and the kids celebrated at a school dance. Mike (Finn Wolfhard) even shared a kiss with Eleven. However, a final shot of the Mind Flayer looming over the school in the Upside Down suggested things aren’t as happy as they seem.
The ending of season 2 was not without its sad points. Fans said a tearful and tragic goodbye to favorite Bob (Sean Astin), who was eaten alive by the demodogs.
While the Duffer brothers – the creators of the show – are keeping mum on details, they have indicated they have a plan for the rest of the show.
“We figured out what the ending is,” they told HuffPost. “But it will take us more than one year to get there.”
One thing we do know for sure: there is a time jump between the end of last season and this season.
“We realized the kids are just too old, so we had to jump forward,” they said.
