“We’re not kids anymore,” Mike (Finn Wolfhard) declares in the trailer for Stranger Things’ third season, released Wednesday. And with that, fans should know the cast is in for a new set of challenges: their teenage years.
Set to The Who’s “Baba O’Riley,” the trailer reunites Mike with his old pals Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Will (Noah Schnapp), Max (Sadie Sink) and of course, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), smack dab in the middle of the summer of 1985.
The gang is up to the usual habits of any group of kids going through typical adventures and growing pains — riding bikes, hitting the arcades and dealing with the emotions that come with your teen years. But of course, the crew is also contending with The Upside Down and all of its monsters. At the end of the trailer, we get a glimpse of one particularly large and slimey-looking Demogorgon, which will no doubt play a role in some of this season’s creepiest moments.
As the tagline notes, “One summer can change everything.”
The new season debuts July 4, 2019.
