The first trailer for of Stranger Things 3 has finally arrived, and there’s a ton to unpack here. Most importantly: The “kids” aren’t awkward little kids anymore. They’re growing up, and as they do the threats against them seem to be getting more dangerous (Nancy’s major perm notwithstanding).
From the new mayor, played by Cary Elwes, to a new location for creatures of the Upside Down in the Starcourt Mall, there’s a real sense of panic throughout trailer, and for good reason. This feeling, combined with the totally ’80s sound of Mötley Crüe’s “Home Sweet Home,” make for the perfect preview for season 3.
And, oh yeah: Hello scary Demogorgon-thing at the very end. You are waybigger than we remember.
Stranger Things returns to Netflix on July 4, 2019.
