Stranger Things Season 3: Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Spoilers & News

Netflix has fallen into a habit of producing brilliant shows. Stranger Things is one such product of Netflix’s endless string of shows. Loved by people of almost all demographics, the wildly popular show premiered on 15 July 2016 on Netflix. The sci-fi horror series opened to wide critical and commercial success, earning unprecedented ratings by the audiences. Both the seasons in total have garnered 18 Primetime Emmy and two Golden Globe nominations. The cast members have become household names, just another reason for the love it receives. The series is created by the Duffer Brothers, who have cited works of auteurs like Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter as inspirations.

Stranger Things Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?

The show’s unprecedented success has encouraged Netflix to order a third, and possibly a fourth season. The brothers claim they won’t stretch the show for commercial purposes, and will probably bring the series to an end by the fourth or the fifth season. On Jan 1, Netflix released an early look at Stranger Things season three in the form of a clue-filled teaser, and announced a release date for the eight-episode installment. Stranger Things 3 will arrive on July 4, 2019.

Stranger Things Season 3 Cast: Who’s in it?

The original cast is set to reprise their roles, much to the elation of the fans. Netflix has divulged some exciting details about two new characters joining the cast. The popular streaming service announced that actors Cary Elwes and Jake Busey will appear as new characters. Elwes will take to screen as Mayor Kline, and is supposed to assume the role in a negative capacity. Busey’s character has been kept under close wraps, but Netflix has strongly hinted he’ll play a local journalist.

The character of Kali, who has been underutilized in the previous season, is slated to return and play a vital role in the young group’s next adventures.

Stranger Things Season 3 Plot: What is it about?

The brothers have said that the timeline of the show will remain intact, the third season operating in the summer of 1985. While no official statement has been made from Netflix, executive producer Shawn Levy has revealed that “Mike and Eleven and are going strong, so that’s a relationship that continues, and same with Mad Max and Lucas,” Levy said. “But again, they’re like 13 or 14-year-old kids, so what does romance mean at that stage of life? It can never be simple and stable relationships and there’s fun to that instability”. The previous two seasons focused on the upside down and the shadow monster that haunted Will. The first season pointed towards the untimely and unexpected death of eleven, probably the most loved character of the series, while the second brought her back and brought a new emotional dimension with her and Hopper’s relationship. The latter thought of the former as his own daughter and in retrospect, she reminded him of his own daughter who met a tragic demise.

Talking further about Steve, a character whose spectrum has gone through and come out the extremes, Lewy revealed he’ll return in a similar capacity, despite Nancy and Jonathan beginning a romantic relationship. His bromance with Dustin became a highlight of the second season, and expect to see much of the same in season 3.
