Puberty, monsters, teenage romance, funfairs and a whole lot of eighties nostalgia is what you can expect from Stranger Things Season 3 if the action-packed trailer is anything to go by. At the start, Dustin returns from what looks like a Summer Camp and naturally, the rest of the gang missed him terribly, so they do what friends do best and scare the living sh*t out of him.
It’s also very noticeable that the cast is all grown up in the new season, and clearly, some time has passed in the show as well. With a few clues like the song “Home Sweet Home” from Mötley Crüe playing on Dustin’s radio and later an 80’s inspired remix of Baba O’Riley’s “The Who”, we think it’s safe to assume the new season is set around the mid-eighties, Summer of 1985 to be a bit more precise.
We’ve also done some extra digging to satisfy your Stranger Things cravings and found the new season episode titles. Do with them what you will, but we believe it’s a good indication of what the ominous town of Hawkins can expect. The Stranger Things Season 3 Episode Titles are below:
Suzie, Do You Copy?
The Mall Rats
The Case of the Missing Lifeguard
The Sauna Test
The Battle of Starcourt
It seems that the Starcourt Mall is going to be particularly dominant throughout season 3. Other than the episode titles that are a dead giveaway, remember the first teaser trailer with Steve working at Scoops Ahoy? No doubt they’ll be facing their demons, quite literally, in the little town of the Hawkin’s Mall.
For what seems to have been a forever wait for the new season to air, Netflix has finally set a release date of July 4th. Check out some stills from the new season below.
