Netflix Reveals ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Release Date in Cryptic Trailer

Stranger Things 3 will debut on July 4, 2019.

Appropriate for the time and pretty dang creepy (which is very on-brand for Stranger Things), the clip comes from the fictional 5 WIYZ news station in Hawkins, Indiana and is brought to viewers by the gracious folks at the town's hottest new spot, the Starcourt Mall.

The third season of "Stranger Things" will launch on Netflix July 4, 2019. Which means a whole lot of Americans are going to skip their annual fireworks and Brit-bashing to marathon the new series.

By the time "Stranger Things 3" begins streaming, it will have been nearly two years since fans were last treated to new episodes, with the most recent run streaming from October 2017.

It's definitely a day of celebration, 'cos the premiere date for Stranger Things season three has just dropped - in the creepiest way possible.

Along with the release date, a new teaser clip and poster were unveiled early on Tuesday, just minutes after the New Year had descended on the U.S. east coast.

The image - published on Instagram - has the tagline: "One Summer Can Change Everything". They want to deliver something bigger and better than a year ago.

The new season will again feature Eleven (Mille Bobbie Brown), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink).

As you can see in the following video, Netflix used a Dick Clark's New Year's Eve broadcast and turned it Upside Down.

Cary Elwes and Jake Busey will join the series in guest star roles.

David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper in the series, previously discussed how the new season will draw inspiration from Chevy Chase's 1985 comedy Fletch.

Eagle-eyed fans will also spot familiar phrases that flash up on screen, such as ' the silver cat feeds" and "when blue and yellow meet in the west'.
