I’m betting that the good but traumatised kids of Hawkins, Indiana are the only ones sitting down in their class at the beginning of the school year and dreading the inevitable request from the teacher to write a report about what they did over the summer.
While everyone else was sunning themselves by the pool, going to parties or going on fun-filled road trips, Stranger Things‘ Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Will (Noah Schnapp)
While everyone else is sunning themselves by the pool, going to parties or heading off on fun-filled road trips, Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Will (Noah Schnapp) and associated beleaguered siblings and parents are doing battle with unholy, screaming monsters from the overgrown depths of the Upside Down where no one bothers to prune a damn thing (likely because they’ve all been eaten).
In the first full trailer for season 3, it becomes very obvious very quickly that the gang are not going to get a reprieve over summer 1985, and that while they’d like to just be working at the mall or the pool, listening to music or going on picnics, that’s not what they’re going to get to do.
In fact, the horror quotient of their holiday is about to get all Jordan Peele’d (yes, he is now a verb, and deservedly so), something the trailer ramps slowly and ominously in a way that suggests the lazy, hazy days of summer are going to be short-lived as hell.
Which is pretty much they’ll end up all over again.
Someone better start investing in good therapy or at least move away from Hawkins quick smart.
Great ideas but not until after 4 July when Stranger Things season 3 arrives in all its Demogorgon glory.
