There’s no still word on the release date for Stranger Things season 3– Netflix will not say more than 2019 at this point– but we do have the titles for all eight episodes thanks to a new teaser trailer revealed Sunday. They are as follows: “Suzie, Do You Copy?”, “The Mall Rats”, “The Case of the Missing Lifeguard”, “The Sauna Test”, “The Source”, “The Birthday”, “The Bite”, and “The Battle of Starcourt”. The teaser then closes with a brief description: “In the summertime of 1985, the experience continues …”.
That takes Stranger Things back to the original episode count of its launching season, after a slightly longer nine-episode season 2 last year in October. There was a 15-month space in between the first two seasons, and the show’s third season looks set to cross that if it doesn’t get here before completion of January 2019. Take a look at the Stranger Things season three trailer below.
Beyond the brand-new titles and logline, there’s little we know about Stranger Things season 3. The creators, The Duffer Brothers, are set to direct the first two episodes– “Suzie, Do You Copy?”, “The Mall Rats”– while executive manufacturer Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel) will helm episodes 3 and four, “The Case of the Missing Lifeguard” and “The Sauna Test”, respectively.
Netflix released a teaser featuring the Starcourt Mall, referenced in the title of the 8th episode, back in July, which exposed that Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) gets a task at the Scoops Ahoy ice cream shop. The episode title, “The Battle of Starcourt”, suggests the location will play a main role in the upcoming season– or at least the season 3 ending.
The show’s 3rd season may be its penultimate, if the Duffer Brothers stay with their initial strategy of 4 seasons exposed in August in 2015. It’s a combination of the characters, generally high school kids, prepared to move onto college, and keeping it believable. “I don’t understand if we can justify something bad taking place to them as soon as a year,” Matt Duffer stated.tech news follow EPICdigest on Instagram, Facebook, or Apple News.
