Stranger Things Season 3 is coming next year, and now, Netflix has announced the titles of all eight episodes in the upcoming season. Netflix hasn’t shared much in the way of specific plot details on the third season, so these episode titles are almost all there is to go on.
Here they are:
- Suzie, Do You Copy?
- The Mall Rats
- The Case Of The Missing Lifeguard
- The Sauna Test
- The Source
- The Birthday
- The Bite
- The Battle Of Starcourt
Stranger Things Season 3 takes place in Summer 1985. Season 1 took place in 1983, with Season 2 beginning just before Halloween in 1984. Season 3 premieres on Netflix in April 2019
Stranger Things premiered in 2016, with Season 2 arriving in 2017. The wait for a new season now is the longest ever, and that might be the result of Season 3 having even more special effects.
Season 3’s story emphasis is expected to shift away from Will. “We’re going to give Will a break,” producer Shawn Levy said previously. “We’re not going to put Will through hell for a third season in a row. He’ll be dealing with stuff, but he won’t be at rock bottom the way we forced the amazing Noah [Schnapp] to play.”
At least two new cast members are joining the show for Season 3, including Carey Elwes and Jake Busey. Busey will play Bruce, who is a “corrupt and sexist news reporter,” while Elwes is Mayor Kline, a “slick and self-serving politician.”
A 16-bit Stranger Things video game was announced at The Game Awards. Matt and Ross Duffer were on stage to premiere a new Stranger Things Season 3 game–you can re-watch that reveal below.
