July 4, 2019, will be a strange one.
The third season of the hit Netflix show ‘Stranger Things’ will drop on the streaming service (as the kids say) on the 4th of July. And, as seen in the final trailer below that recently dropped online, the ’80s nostalgia will reach peak levels alongside peak level thrills.
Yes, yes and yes.
The science fiction amalgamation of ‘Stranger Things’ — Steven Spielberg meets Stephen King — is proof of why Netflix is a force to be reckoned with its 10-episode series model. There are things that can be done on Netflix that can’t be done on network TV. And after watching this trailer, it doesn’t feel like a stretch to say that season three of ‘Stranger Things’ will be the best so far of the young series.
One notable addition to the cast includes Cary Elwes. The ‘Princess Bride’ favorite will play Mayor Larry Kline of Hawkins, Indiana.
Random Thought: It would’ve been a dynamite advertising crossover for ‘Stranger Things’ to have a release date of July 11 instead of July 4th.
Or, in other words, 7-11. In more words, the character Eleven and the 7-Eleven store would make for a perfect partnership. In addition to the show’s Nike campaign, it would’ve been awesome to get an Eleven-themed 7-Eleven slushie.
Another Random Thought: Does 7-Eleven sell Eggo Waffles?
Season three of ‘Stranger Things’ starts streaming on Netflix on July 4th.
P.S. Here’s some of that 1985 nostalgia gold featured in this forthcoming season of ‘Stranger Things.’
