After months of anticipation, Netflix has finally dropped a trailer for season 3 of Stranger Things. They made it worth the wait with a full two minutes and forty-nine seconds of brand new content and it looks nuts.
One thing the trailer does really well is create excitement for the next season, without giving much away. We know that it'll be summer instead of the traditional Halloween, we know that the kids are growing up, and we know that Steve has a summer job at the mall. Most else is still up in the air.
The most exciting scenes of the trailer are towards the end, but they are cut so quickly that if you blink at the wrong moment you may miss them entirely. It's almost like Netflix knows that its most die hard fans will be watching the trailer in slow motion and/or pausing every second to look for clues. That is how you know the trailer was well-crafted, because doing that, it's hard to get a true picture of season three's plot.
Unlike many of today's adaptation series and films, Stranger Things has no source content for fans to draw their predictions from either. All we have to dissect is the trailer and by the look of it, anything could happen in Hawkins this summer...
