Fans have waited nearly two years for this moment.
Netflix unleashed the third season of Stranger Things early Thursday with eight new episodes, which is perfect timing since many people are off for the rest of the work week in honor of the July 4 holiday.
So what surprises are in store Eleven and the rest of the Stranger Things cast this season?
“It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer's heating up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood,” Netflix explains. “Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.”
The new episodes are titled as follows:
- Chapter One: Suzie, Do You Copy?
- Chapter Two: The Mall Rats
- Chapter Three: The Case of the Missing Lifeguard
- Chapter Four: The Sauna Test
- Chapter Five: The Flayed
- Chapter Six: E Pluribus Unum
- Chapter Seven: The Bite
- Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt
