Stranger Things 3 – The trailer is out!

The Stranger Things 3 trailer was released by Netflix on March 20, 2019, and it is absolutely full of new clues about the third installment of the beloved Netflix original. From audio clips, to briefly flashed images, fans of the show are beginning to piece together exciting details about season three. Today, I’ll cover some of the details that give us an idea of season three’s plot.

If you haven’t seen Stranger Things, you may want to now. Even with only 2 seasons (17 episodes total) since July 15, of 2016, when it first aired, Stranger Things is still incredibly popular. According to Nielsen – a rating service well known for its accuracy – 15.8 million people watched the first episode of Stranger Things 2 within the first three days.

To give a very brief summary, the show follows the story of friends Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Will as they encounter strange mysteries in their small hometown of Hawkins, Indiana. Along the way, they meet Eleven – a girl with supernatural abilities and the number 11 tattooed on her wrist.

From the opening scene of the trailer, we can tell when the third season will take place. Dustin has returned from summer camp, as we can see he is wearing his camp uniform and is talking about how he is finally home.

We can also assume that Nancy and Jonathan are attempting to spread the word about what is really happening in Hawkins. In season two, they were working with the reporter Murray Bauman to expose the Hawkins Laboratory. In the trailer, Nancy and Jonathan are shown in the waiting area of The Hawkins Post, presumably about to talk with a reporter.

Finally, many fans have speculated that the main source of evil in this season may use, or be related to, mind control. The opening scene where Eleven is controlling Dustin’s toys could be hinting at this.

Throughout the trailer, we also see many people with blank looks on their faces, and Steve Harrington seems to have an infection on his arm that closely resembles the typical texture of the upside down. Shortly after that, we see someone in a hospital transform into a new kind of monster while Jonathan watches in horror.

Water and electricity may play a role in the controlling of the people of Hawkins, as both are common themes in the trailer.

Whatever happens, Stranger Things 3 is sure to be a great addition to the series.
