Netflix drops release date for ‘Stranger Things’ season three


Netflix rang in the New Year by revealing the release date of sci-fi series Stranger Things season three in a new teaser the 1980s-set series will officially return on July 4, 2019.

The minute-long New Year themed teaser features archival footage of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve from 1984. As the ball drops in Times Square and 1985 dawns, things take a turn toward the Upside-Down just as the clock is about to strike midnight.

The teaser also introduces a few new clues regarding what season three might entail. The footage of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve is intercut with shots of an old-school green-on-black computer screen, which at one point displays the phrase, “WHEN BLUE AND YELLOW MEET IN THE WEST.”

The third season of Stranger Things will be eight episodes long, titled Suzie, Do You Copy?, The Mall Rats, The Case of the Missing Lifeguard, The Sauna Test, The Source, The Birthday, The Bite and The Battle of Starcourt.
