Summer is coming, Netflix popped up on Twitter to remind us, the day after Game of Thrones breathed its last – and pave the way for the year’s next most talked-about TV event, Stranger Things. Yes, it’s only a matter of weeks until the sci-fi horror smash hit returns, and to warm us up, we’ve got our first clip of Season 3.
Things promise to be suitably steamy in Hawkins, Indiana, after Season 2’s chillier Halloween/Christmas vibes, and this new clip certainly steams. It introduces us to Billy Hargrove (Dacre Montgomery), all grown up (even more) and working at the pool (RIP Barb), where Mike’s mom Karen (Cara Buono) and a host of other ladies, are enjoying the view.
We already know from the previous trailer, and every other news story, that the rest of the cast are also returning, including Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven, Finn Wolfhard’s Mike, Gaten Matarazzo’s Dustin, Sadie Sink’s Max, Caleb McLaughlin’s Lucas, Charlie Heaton’s Steve, plus Maya Hawke as new character Robin, “an alternative girl who is equal parts sharp and playful”. And, on the adult side, Winona Ryder and David Harbour are also back as Joyce Byers and Jim Hopper. But this new clip gives us a glimpse of a brighter, funnier Stanger Things, as it gets into the groove of a summertime setting. What happens when the sun goes down? Find out on 4th July, when Season 3 premieres:
