Welcome to summer of ‘85 in Hawkins.
Netflix has today released the official trailer for "Stranger Things" 3 today, which premieres on July 4th, 2019. The trailer is packed full of nostalgia and emotion, and reintroduces all of our favorite characters, who have all grown up since the last time we saw them. This season looks to feature all of the fun of movies like Stand By Me and The Sandlot with a pinch of horror thrown into the mix. There's also enough footage shown to keep die-hard fans picking apart the trailer for days to come.
Oh, and just wait until you see the new threat to the town of Hawkins!
Returning for the third season are Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, David Harbour as Jim Hopper, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, and Joe Keery as Steve Harrington.
Jake Busey plays Bruce, a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor.
Cary Elwes has been cast as Hawkins' Mayor Kline, a classic '80s politician who's more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs.
Priah Ferguson has been made a recurring star in her role as as the precocious scene stealer Erica Sinclair, Lucas' little sister who first made a guest appearance in "Stranger Things 2."
Maya Hawke will play Robin, an alternative girl who is equal parts sharp and playful. Bored with her mundane day job, she just wants a little excitement in her life... and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins.
The series is created by The Duffer Brothers, who also serve as executive producers and directors along with Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen and Iain Patterson.
