Viewers will have to wait a little longer for their next trip to Hawkins, Indiana.
According to a report by Entertainment Weekly, Netflix has announced a release window for the third season of Stranger Things. Though fans were hoping for a 2018 premiere, the new season is now slated to start streaming in summer 2019.
The news comes from Netflix programming executive Cindy Holland, who made the announcement during the Television Critics Association's press tour. The extra time is being used to make sure the new episodes are as good as they can be, with Holland teasing a "bigger and better" season marked by even more special effects work. Season one of Stranger Things originally premiered in July 2016 and season two debuted in October 2017.
Though plot details for the new season have not been revealed yet, Netflix did recently release a playful teaser highlighting a new location for the series. Check out the promo clip below to learn all about Hawkins' exciting new shopping mall -- complete with an appearance by everyone's favorite baseball bat wielding bad boy turned babysitter, Steve Harrington (Joe Keery)!
In addition to Steve, the promo clip also features new cast member Maya Hawke as Robin. According to Netflix, Robin is "an alternative girl who is equal parts sharp and playful. Bored with her mundane day job, she just wants a little excitement in her life... and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins."
Stranger Things comes from The Duffer Brothers and stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Cara Buono, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Dacre Montgomery, and Sadie Sink.
Seasons one and two are now available to stream through Netflix. In addition, the first season is also available on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. A current Netflix subscription starts at $11 per month for HD streaming and $14 per month for Ultra HD streaming.
