The Dark and Creepy Final Trailer for 'Stranger Things' Season Three Is Here

After almost two years of waiting, there's less than two weeks left until Stranger Things returns to your Netflix queue to unravel more of the Upside Down's mysteries. Come July, the beloved series will finally unveil its latest 80s-set supernatural chapter, much to the delight of fans everywhere. And if you've been counting down the days for far too long, the streaming platform has gifted fans with another look at the series' new eight episodes.

As we saw in the show's first full season three trailer three months ago, everyone is back — although the main crew is a little older, so expect teenage versions of Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown), Will (Noah Schnapp), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink) this time around. Elsewhere, Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) still looks shaken, Hawkins police chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) is still a man on a mission, and everyone's favourite walking hairstyle — aka Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) — is now working in an ice cream parlour. Of course he is.

Steve's place of work isn't a minor detail. As the marketing campaign has made plain and this new trailer expands upon, the brand new Hawkins mall plays a major part in the new batch of episodes. It's the sunny summer of 1985 in the small town, and its inhabitants are making the most of the warm weather, lack of school and abundance of free time that comes with it by hanging out at the shops. And dallying with more monsters, naturally.

Said critter don't appear to be just regular ol' Demogorgons, either. This time, the creatures have a voice, too, advising Eleven and the gang that "we're going to end you, we're going to end your friends, and we're going to end everyone." While she thought she had banished them from our world at the end of the last season, it seems that's not how things have turned out.

Adding to a list of trailers, alongside the season's initial cryptic teaser, this new footage also serves up plenty of other bits and pieces, but we'll let you discover the rest by watching.

Check out the full trailer below:

Stranger Things season three arrives on Netflix on Thursday, July 4.
