A new poster for the series, which was shared by Netflix on Twitter, reveals that fans will be able to return to Hawkins, Indiana in summer 2019, on 4 July.
The teaser trailer announces the new setting of summer 1985 by opening on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve from the year in question, and includes cryptic shots of a computer interface with clues that fans are already poring over, including the words: "When blue and yellow meet in the west."
The confirmed release date appeared alongside a new poster for the season, which featured the whole gang – Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Will (Noah Schnapp), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink).
Most of them are watching Independence Day fireworks, but it appears that frequent visitors of the Upside Down, Eleven and Will, are preoccupied with whatever’s lurking behind them.
The season’s tagline reads: “One summer can change everything.”
Stranger Things season 3 once again comes from creators Matt and Ross Duffer. Main cast members Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Wolfhard, Bobby Brown, Matarazzo, McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Noah Schnapp and Sadie Sink all set to return.
