Strangers Things Season 3 is going to test our patience a lot this year but not without getting us all excited about it. The Strange Things Season 2 had released in October 2017 and the response from the fans was phenomenal.
When will Stranger Things Season 3 release on Netflix?
The new year started off with a bang for the fans. The official account of Stranger Things on Instagram announced that Stranger Things Season 3 will release on 4th July 2019. Well, that also happens to be the Independence Day for the United States of America (USA). The recent Title teaser, which was released two months ago, hinted at the summer 2019 release.
On 10 November 2018, David Harbour (Chief Jim Hopper) confirmed that he had finished filming for Stranger Things Season 3. He also said that he was looking forward to shaving off his mustache! He had already indicated that the third season wouldn’t be released until 2019.
Cindy Holland, Netflix’s Vice President of Original Programming, had confirmed the news but also assured that the delay will be ‘worth the wait’. In September 2018, Shawn Levy said during the Emmy’s that “cinematically, it’s our biggest season yet”. Well, that explains the long wait for the fans.
Also, on 6 November 2018, Netflix celebrated the first-ever Stranger Things day. They also had a special surprise for the fans for Christmas 2018: Happy Holidays from the Upside Down.
Is There a Trailer for Stranger Things Season 3?
Netflix did release a short teaser for Stranger Things Season 3 in the form of an ad for a new mall in Hawkins. The ad features Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) and newcomer Robin (Maya Thurman-Hawke) as ice cream vendors.
