It’s official: STRANGER THINGS 3 to hit summer 2019

Stranger Things eight-episode third season will be released  Summer 2019. This is a little later than some had hoped or expected..

Explaining the reason for the delay, Netflix’s VP or original content, Cindy Holland, told reporters Sunday at the Television Critics Assococation summer press tour, “It’s a handcrafted show. [Exec producers] The Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy have worked really hard, and they understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger and better than what they did last year. And so they really want to take the time to get it right.”

Earlier this month the show released its first official trailer.. it features Hawkins’ mall grand opening. It featured Steve at the AHOY ice cream location.. it features nostalgia galore. And it makes me hope that the battle takes place within the shopping mall. What an homage to the 80s it would be! And what a great location now that the kids, in their 80s way, are growing up and hanging out at the best place that existed at that time: The brick and mortar of the famed shopping mall.
