'The adventure continues' Stranger Things season 3 teaser

The official titles of eight brand new Stranger Things episodes have been revealed in the first teaser for the Netflix show’s third season.

The name of each installment was revealed in the first teaser for the Netflix show’s third season which has confirmed that events will take place in the summer of 1985 – half a year on from those seen in season two.

You can see the titles below, which – out of context – tell us absolutely nothing about what could possibly happen when the show returns, but hasn't stopped us from attempting to decode what could go down in each episode.

The hit show’s second season ended with Hawkins Lab shutting down and the chilling image of the Mind Flayer towering over the central characters’s high school in the Upside Down.

Stranger Things season three will see Millie Bobbie Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Winona Ryder and David Harbour all return. The Duffer Brothers will direct the opening two episodes with executive producer Shawn Levy returning to direct three and four.

The titles for all season three episodes are:

Chapter One: “Suzie, Do You Copy?”

Chapter Two: “The Mall Rats”

Chapter Three: “The Case of the Missing Lifeguard”

Chapter Four: “The Sauna Test”

Chapter Five: “The Source”

Chapter Six: “The Birthday”

Chapter Seven: “The Bite”

Chapter Eight: “The Battle of Starcourt”

It seems Hawkins’s shopping mall Starcourt is going to be featured fairly prominently in the forthcoming season. It’s the work place of fan favourite Steve Harington (Joe Keery).

There’s no official synopsis yet, but a few clues have hinted at what’s to come. In the official companion book to the series, Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down, showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer promised a lighter storyline this season, to fit with the summer theme. “Aesthetically, its’s going to feel very different,” Ross Duffer said. “Everyone is going to this new mall, seeing movies, and, of course, the Hawkins pool is open for business. I think there’ll be a sense of fun and joy.”

Stranger Things returns to Netflix in 2019. You can find a compilation of everything we know here.
