After season 2 raised the stakes and the threat facing Hawkins, Stranger Things looks to do the same again for season 3. In this (very spoilery) final trailer before the upcoming Netflix release of the new season, everything looks bigger and plain more than ever before. More, bigger monsters. More, bigger government groups. More, bigger kids. We’re looking at the biggest, most epic season yet.
I’m not sure what the hell will happen, but I’m sure it will be fun.
Best guess; it looks like the Mind Flayer has stayed in Hawkins since the end of season 2, and can now possess people. Now, the trailer makes it look like it possesses Billy. And yeah, it probably does. Billy sucks and makes an easy villain. However, I think we may have a Jason Goes to Hell situation here, where the Mind Flayer possesses multiple characters throughout the season. Be prepared, everyone. We’re probably going to get an episode or two with some fan favorites being evil. Already the debate rages about whether that’s Billy’s voice or Hopper’s in the trailer. Here’s hoping they leave poor Will alone for once.
Will they manage something a bit different this season? As much as I love Stranger Things, the first two seasons do repeat a few too many things. Hopefully, they take things in a bit of a different direction this time around.
Whatever the case, it’s yet another excellent trailer hyping me considerably for season 3. What can I say, I freaking love this show, and I can’t believe it considering my usual disinterest in the 1980s Stephen King vibe that Stranger Things loves. Just goes to show how any setting or theme can work when done right.
I’ll be there when Stranger Things possesses Netflix for a third time on July 4. Here’s hoping we all make it out okay.
